Yes there is a giveaway, I’ll get to that in a minute…First things first. If you have read my blog at all, you know that my daughter Kelli and I are big quilting buddies…
Well my buddy hit the big times (well at least as big as it gets in our little world). She has a quilt featured on Moda Bake Shop today!! I think it’s a beauty…..
It was made with a Moda Fat Quarter Bundle of Barabara Brackman’s Battle Hymn 1862 fabric line. Kelli added a Moda Solid in Parchment and in Brown to complete the quilt. I am so in love. The quilt is more complicated than most of the offerings on Moda Bake Shop but don’t let that discourage you in trying to make one.
Yes, there are lots of little pieces(Kelli is the QUEEN of little pieces) but once you have made one block, you just keep making more and before long, you’ll have all of them finished! I really like this fabric line…the colors blend but aren’t matchy pooh-pooh. I love the brown with it too….again blending but no matchy pooh-pooh either. Perfect!!
I have such a great time sewing and crafting with my daughters and my sons. I am super blessed to have them and really quite proud of each of them…
Kelli sewed lots of these blocks when we were having our sewing Saturdays.
Cabbage Rose Quilting and Fabrics, a great online and store front quilt shop located in Fort Worth, Texas, is offering to give one of lucky readers a $40 gift certificate to be used towards their own stash of Battle Hymn 1862 fabric. All you need to do is leave a comment and tell us if you have made a project using Civil War reproduction fabric. I was just over to their site and was peaking at Cabbage Corner (Cabbage Rose’s Blog) to see some of their Quilt Market finds and at their Newest Shop Additions….oh what great project to make!
The pattern is free on Moda Bake Shop’s website. Hurry on over there, leave a comment and let Kelli know what you think of her quilt….she needs a little quilty love.
If you are a giveaway junkie like me, you’ve hit the jack pot coming over to my blog. There are THREE giveaways going on right now…this one, one for Word Play Quilts and one for Pretty Patchwork Quilts. Good luck! I’ll pick all the winners next Tuesday. Today I am linking up to Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Show if off Friday.
