If you’re headed to @quiltmarket, Moda is giving away AB Bundles from all of your favorite Moda Designers at the International Houston Quilt Market!
All you have to do is:
1. Come over to the Moda Designer Booths
2. Snap a selfie with your favorite designer’s “I Dream of Moda” AB Bundle (selfie means they need to be in the pic with the bundle!) (a selfie with the designer AND bundle drops your name in the hat twice!) 3. Upload your pic to instagram with hashtags
#idreamofmoda and #showmethemoda and #feedsackstrueblue
4. We will announce the winners Nov. 1st!
Can’t wait to see you there!
“Life is weird and wonderful sometimes” to quote my daughter @lettucealone She’s so right. After 11+ years of interviewing fabric designers, it’s MY name on the selvedge of a line of fabric. Not something I ever thought I’d see, but it’s certainly exciting! Feed Sacks: True Blue will debut at Quilt Market in Houston later this month and be in shops in April, 2018. Suffice it to say, the sewing machine is working overtime at my house and at the homes of some wonderful friends. I’m one lucky lady! #modafabrics #showmethemoda
