I've had the pleasure of being asked to be a part of several of the Moda All-Stars books from Martingale, & each & every one of them have been so much fun. But this latest book, 'Mix It Up' is one of my absolute favorites!
I had so much fun making my quilt, called 'Rosebud Pinwheels', & I had even more fun using Moda's 'Cupcake Mix' papers to make it! I also have tagged several pages in the book - because there are sooo many projects I want to make from it. I love that in a book... so many amazing projects to make (or at least dream about!). (I do have to admit... I have quite a few books that I've bought just to dream over!)
While all the designs in the book were inspired & created with the Cake Mix or Cupcake papers that (the genius) 'Miss Rosie' at Moda has created & it makes them so much fun to make, the book also includes guidance of how to convert what can be made with each of the Cake Mix & Cupcake Mix papers so you could make the projects a more traditional way.
But... I do hope that you will give using the Cake Mix & Cupcake Mix papers a try. They are so much fun!! (Oh!, & there is a step-by-step photos of how you use then & lots of tips!) I'm not one that jumps pn the bandwagon for every product that is released, but I have to admit that, when there are a lot of them to be made... I love using these papers for making half-square triangles (& quarter-square triangles too). The accuracy is amazing & the process is so. much fun.!
If you would like a chance to win your own copy or an e-book of Mix It Up... be sure to come back the week of November 4th - for the blog hop we will be doing with Martingale, Moda, & the designers - with some of our favorites from this wonderful book, & some amazing facts about the Moda All-Stars books...!
Here's to inspiring books & fun projects!
