Giveaway Day! Celebrate my 1st Moda Bake Shop with me!


If you are a regular reader of this blog, hop on over to Moda Bake Shop to see my first project with them. I am excited to have a project in the bake shop, but the most exciting thing is sharing this block because I think it's a hidden gem.  I found out recently that it's also known as Chuck-A-Luck, but I think I'll keep saying "Cracker" instead, K?


As promised, here is the same quilt in different fabrics. For this quilt, I chose to do 30's reproduction fabrics.


Now for the goods:

Heather Ross blue dogs & blue dots... 1/3 yd each (Oh yes...I did!)

Denyse Schmidt Katie Jump Rope Orange Stripes & Orange Bandana Dot... (I think a FQ of each)

Alexander Henry Sew Now Sew Wow- a good sized chunk (how's that for specific?)

Anna Griffin MacKenzie Christmas fabric (get started on those Christmas crafts!)

Fandango Sarabande in Sand and Raya Sierra Stripe...1/2 yard of the stripe.   The Sarabande is what was leftover from my backing in my bakeshop quilt, and there's a lot of it.

The winner will also receive a digital copy of my first pattern, Helix:




To enter this giveaway, you have up to 2 chances to win.
1) Leave a comment on this post letting me know you are a follower (new or old!)
2)Leave a comment on this post letting me know you left a comment on the Moda Bake Shop tutorial, A Ritzy Cracker Quilt.


I will pick a winner on Halloween...who says treats are just for kids?   If you are marked "no reply" to your comments, please include an email address or some way for me to contact you.  U.S. Residents only...nothing personal, just scared of high shipping costs!  Good luck!

Thanks for visiting my blog...feel free to poke around and see if there's anything you like!

  91. And I have just left a post at Moda. I can hardly wait to get home as I have two scrap packs of Fandango and just called the local fabric shop so I can pick up a charm pack straight after work. I can see I will be up half the night rotary cutting, but easy to do with such an inspiring block and end result.
    Regards,
