Moda All-Stars 'Mix It Up' Blog Hop

HI Folks!  Welcome to day 3 of the ‘Mix It Up’ blog/social media hop!

Martingale & Lissa Alexander (of Moda Fabrics) have compiled another wonderful (& fun!) book that features sixteen designers - sixteen quilts - & all the fun that you can have with Carrie Nelson’s (Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.) incredible Cake Mix & Cupcake Mix Papers!Now, I’m not one that jumps on every notion bandwagon that comes along… but I LOVE using papers for making half-square triangles - & Carrie has taken in to the next level by putting together papers that you can use with either Layer Cakes (10 “ squares) or Charm Packs (5” squares)  & that provide seemingly countless options for quilt blocks. Then - you add the ‘Mix It Up’ book - filled with more ideas & quilts you can make using these papers & you’ve got an amazing source for quilts to make for yourself - or for the perfect gift… (& you’ll have so much fun in the process!)I am so happy to be one of the designers asked to design a quilt for ‘Mix It Up’, & I had a ball in the process!  My quilt is called ‘Rosebud Pinwheels’, & uses the smaller Cupcake Mix papers, a few charm packs & some background fabric.As a part of this fun blog/social media hop, We’re also doing a giveaway!  How would you like a chance to win not only this amazing, fun book, but also 2 layer cakes (including my upcoming Bramble Cottage & some Bella Solids) and some cake mix papers!

 I feel so blessed to be a part of this fun… so to enter, simply leave a comment with what you are most thankful for as we enter this holiday season. The winner will be announced on Saturday morning, November 9. (… & don’t forget to come back to see if you’ve won!)

 Below you can find the listing (either Instagram or website) of all the other designers who are participating in the ‘Mix It Up’ hop - so be sure to visit them for more fun & chances to win more prizes!

I just discovered you and your quilt-your fabric touches my heart is such a special place. So calm, soothing, pretty.
I am most thankful for family and health.

I love your quilt! It would be a fun one to make. I also am a fat quarter bundle and layer cake addict because you can’t go wrong planning a quilt with them. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for sharing your talent.

Kristine Butorac November 07, 2019

There are many things I’m thankful for, my kids, grandkids, and husband. I’m also very thankful for health. This last summer I lost my best friend to cancer. She was only in her fifty’s and had so much to live for. We used to do a lot of quilting together. I miss her a bunch!
