Moda has two fun things happening this year that you might not know about yet.  First is a year of contests called “12 Designers, 12 Months, 12 contests”.  If you put all the prizes you could win from entering these contests together,  you’d need a truck to carry it all!  

 

Each of the participating designers have a contest for you to enter.  Each contest is different, so you never know what’s coming, but they do have one thing in common, prizes, prizes, prizes!  Here’s the list of participating designers:

 

If you’d like to participate in these contests, visit the Moda blog on the 5th of each month to read about that month’s designer.   Post your finished project each month to Instagram or Facebook.  You can choose one contest or try them all.  It’s fun to see what everyone creates and you could win some great prizes!   Just look at what Kaari has created with the assorted blocks her winners created!  You can see the January and February creations by searching Instagram or Facebook with the hashtags #12contestsfrenchgeneral or #12contestssweetwater.  The Me & My Sister challenge has just started and they have the cutest table runner for you to make!  You’ll not only end up with a great table runner, you could also win some prizes!

Blockheads

Next is the Blockheads group.  It’s a free block of the week from 6 designers!  Blockheads starts this week, and you’ll get a total of 48 blocks, one each week for the rest of the year!

Here’s block #1 from Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles.

You can find the blocks and pattern each week on The Moda Blog!

You can see more pictures on Instagram and Facebook by searching for #modablockheads and they have a Facebook group that they just started called Moda Blockheads.

Thank you Moda for inspiring us!  Because of you we devote every minute we can to quilting!

Have a great weekend filled with fun sewing!

Hugs,

Have you seen the newest girl’s quilt at Bunny Hill?  I’ve named it Twinkle Toes and it’s from my new fabric line Lily & Will Revisited.

The idea for Twinkle Toes started the day my grand-daughter Alyssa came running up to my studio to show me her new pointe shoes.  She could hardly wait to put them on!

 

She’d worked so hard and waited so long to get these shoes.  The shoes were magical and her excitement was contagious!

I’d been working on quilt ideas for my Lily & Will Revisited fabric line, and watching Alyssa dance around my studio in those shoes, put the idea of a ballet quilt in my head! I went back through photos of her as a little girl, dancing in all those beautiful dresses.  When I found the perfect one, I used it to draw the ballerina mouse in my quilt.

Twinkle Toes is off to the quilter next week and then to my photographer.  It won’t be long until we have a pattern for this quilt. I love how the quilt looks and I can’t wait to see it quilted!   The borders were fussy cut lengthwise, to take advantage of that beautiful cottontail toile fabric.  The quilt is feminine, girly and perfect to take center stage in a baby girl’s room.  It’s a quilt to be handed down from generation to generation.  Picture all those little girls in their tutu’s!  Watch them dance and you’ll feel the magic too!  We’re taking pre-orders for Twinkle Toes kits and more on our website for the next two weeks.  They’ll be shipping sometime in May, as soon as the fabric arrives from Moda.

I have some of my favorite fabrics on my studio shelves now.  They are calling my name, waiting for samples to be made.  It’s Lily & Will Revisited in pink, gray and Bunny Hill Blue.

Pretty in pink,

Beautiful in blue,

Elegant in gray,

Put them all together and it’s a Lily & Will Revisited Bundle!   

I feel like I should order bolts for my own personal stash building, because this fabric won’t come again.  What if I decide several years from now, I need to make curtains from this beautiful gray Cottontail Toile?

Or, maybe a duvet cover from this Cottontail Toile?

And a dust ruffle from this beautiful stripe?  Did I tell you this stripe is was inspired by a 1860’s vintage wallpaper?  Imagine how regal this looked in a Victorian home.

And, of course we can’t forget baby!  I designed this line for a sophisticated baby look!  Here’s a sample of our first printing of this fabric in aqua and brown.  Now, just use you imagination to see it in blue and gray.

Or change this pink and brown to pink and gray!

Lily & Will Revisited comes in flannel too!  Imagine what you can make…

 I’ll be showing you much more in the next few blog posts.  We’ll have kits, free patterns, and so many cute things!  If you want your local quilt shop to carry this fabric, be sure and tell them now!  Lily & Will is Revisiting for the last time.  Shipping to quilt stores in May.

Back soon to tell you about Twinkle Toes.
