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’m Thankful for my family and my health and that I’m able to homeschool our son who is on the autism spectrum. Quilting has been a great therapy release for me. I made 1 cake mix quilt #4 in a class taught by Carrie Nelson, such a sweet lady, I’m super excited about this new book and eager to do a new cake mix quilt!

Lisa November 06, 2019

I am thankful for family most of all, but I’m also thankful that I’m a quilter. Being a quilter has filled my life with joy (and lots and lots of fabric) and lots of quilts for my family.

I am thankful for an understanding husband…who bought me my first sewing machine 5 years ago. Who encourages me on tough day to do things I love. That calls every day while he drives over the road and always asks…did you get some sewing done today? I may not have the best machine or tons or this or that, but I am very blessed to have the best support system in my corner!

Stacy Crundwell November 06, 2019
