Oh my goodness...thank you Amy Ellis and MODA!!!

Last month I found out that I was a winner in the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy Ellis. My version of the APQ's Go 4 It quilt won in the scrappy category. I was thrilled that so many people I don't know voted for my quilt. This is the winning quilt...


I was expecting a package of fat eighths as my prize and was surprised when a very heavy box with a return address from MODA was left on my porch yesterday. Well I tore into that package like a 5 year old on Christmas morning... and it was just like Christmas...OH...MY...GOODNESS... look at all the goodies that came out of that box!!!!


Along with a lovely package of fat eighths were TWO layer cakes...THREE charm packs...an adorable tin with two precuts I haven't seen before they are 2.5" X 5"...an assortment pack of spray adhesive and fabric protector...THREE spools of Aurfil thread...TWO cute little screwdrivers...pins...a zipper pouch...marking pen and eraser...cute vintage-y tote bag...and commemorative banner for MODA's 40th year. WOW WOW WOW!!! I feel like I won the fabric lottery...LOL

And there was this personal touch that blew me away... a hand written (and someone at MODA has gorgeous penmanship) note thanking me participating in the festival.


(And here is a tangent...does anyone else remember getting grades for penmanship...one of my worst subjects...I don't think they even teach cursive anymore...a pity as there is something so lovely about a hand written note...boy I'm showing my age.)


Anyway back to the goodies...here are some up close and personal shots...


The fat eighths are the Mille Couleurs collection from 3 Sisters... some pretty paisleys and a cute bird print in there... a new collection from Studio M Basic Mixologie... very modern and great colors... the yet to be released Flying Colors by Momo. I LOVE Momo...this collection has prints that remind me of Peter Max pictures from the 70's...or at least what I think I remember from the 70's...LOL. The Charm packs include 2 from the new Bright Sun collection by Sherri & Chelsi...love the colors in this line and a Charm pack of Grunge...my favorite go to background fabric.

And here is a close- up of the cute tin...




I wonder what new pattern ideas are in the works for this size of precuts...interesting.

Soooooooo now I need to get back into my sewing room and play with my new goodies. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to Amy Ellis and MODA...you are a quilter's dream come true! THANK YOU THANK YOU  THANK YOU!!!!!

happy stitching everyone-
