Welcome to the final day of the Merry Moda Blog Hop. It's my turn to post along with 3 other Moda designers - and I'm in really good company. Of course, no matter who else was on the schedule with me I'd be in good company. My cohorts for the day are:
1) Jen Williamson of Basic Grey
2) Sandy Klop of American Jane (She's posting on Moda's blog)
3) Sandy Gervais of Pieces From My Heart (you've got to hop on over and see her pictures of funky glasses. I love the moon and stars pair.)
So lets cut to the chase and get to the Giveaways. Leave a comment, any old thing, and we'll have a drawing Monday morning to determine the winner of 3 separate precuts from Linda and my new line "Farmer's Market".
A Farmer's Market Turnover (there are 2 new patterns using these turnovers - I just love triangles and it's really nice when you don't have to cut them yourself) ........
and a Charm Bundle
And a Jelly Roll. (All 3 go to the lucky winner).
They'll be on our website and in shops in March for those of you who want one but don't win.
My block for the Moda Schoolhouse was a pumpkin. When I first drew the block for the Schoolhouse, it was an appliqued pumpkin. I got a phone call telling me that there was no way to get the pattern on a recipe card. So we discussed how I was going to get my pattern for a 12" block on a recipe card since I do applique. After pondering a bit I decided to piece the pumpkin and applique the stem :). Where there's a will, there's a way. I really kind of like it for a change.
For the Merry Moda Blog Hop I decided to make a Tablerunner using the pumpkin block.
All week I've been having everyone pick their favorite quilt kit to be on special for 15% off. Well, it's my turn and I just can't do it. Linda Brannock years ago said that whenever anyone asked her what her favorite quilt was, the answer was always "the one I'm working on". I'm the same. I always get excited by the quilt I'm currently designing - at the moment next year's Mystery Quilt.
So I decided to make the sale storewide. Everything in the store is 15% off today only with free shipping on all orders over $50.00 for the continental US. (And as usual when we do something new - like coupons - we have to work the kinks out. If the checkout doesn't take the 15%off and charges shipping, Byron will catch it and refund the money through PayPal. We think we've got it right and there's a new catch every time.)
Meanwhile here's my recipe sheet to download. These are really yummy, even if I do say so.
The sale is for today only. You have through the weekend to comment to win the Farmer's Market precuts. We'll draw a name Monday. And don't forget to hop on over to the other Moda blogs. Merry Moda Blog Hop!
