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 love this book!!!
I am thankful that I still have family to celebrate with, as the years go on our family gets shorter and I love celebrating with loved ones.
As always during the holidays I am most thankful for our family and the chance to be together.
Family! It’s really what life is about!
So very thankful for family and friends.
I’m thankful that my holidays will be full of time with my family. Very much looking forward to the holidays :) Thank you for the giveaway—your quilt is beautiful.
I am most thankful for wonderful friends and family!
I’m so thankful for our kids and grandkids who bring so much joy and laughter into our lives. And for retirement that gives me time to pursue my quilting.
I am most thankful for my beautiful, amazing children. (And your quilt is BEAUTIFUL! It’s my favorite of all the quilts I’ve seen from the cake mixes.)
I am most thankful for my husband who has survived intense chemotherapy and a major surgery. He’s been out of the hospital for a week, and he’s getting stronger every day.
I am so thankful for my family and friends. I am fortunate to live close to my adult children and we get together to ensure family memories and traditions are carried on for the grandchildren.
I am most thankful for Jesus and for family and friends.
So many things to be thankful for this year… a job, a roof over my head, food on the table and, of course, family and quilting to keep me sane! Beautiful quilt, Brenda. Thanks for the giveaway!
Your quilt is beautiful.
