MoMo MoJo, Applique & a Giveaway

I'm so excited to dive in to the new Moda line by MoMo - Wonderland! It's soooo FUN!!! Can you stand it?? I can't! I just ripped into my fat quarter pack...and selected 17 funky fat quarters.......

Remember the quilt I did for my nephew all out of black & white fabrics and that electric blue/green batik? Well...I think that pattern will be PERFECT for this line!! So that's why I chose 17 fat quarters.......for this...

The brown woven stripe in the photo will be for the 'frame' in each block! How exciting! A new project!!!

But wait..............what about this?

Okay---I'll cut out the applique templates and get them prepped on the fabrics

for my small Lori Smith (From My Heart To Your Hands) eagle/peace applique quilt. I will cut today......promise! And THEN I shall press fat quarters!!!

In the meantime, I had to clear off the cutting table...and so figured I'd have a little giveaway if someone's interested in scraps.

These are scraps from my Heritage pinwheel quilt AND from the Jo Morton quilt I just worked on. Small triangles and pieces but I figured I'd pass them along to someone who could use them instead of dumping them in the trash. Kinda lame, I know, but there ARE people that like to make small quilts so maybe they'll be of use to someone. And look......

They fit nicely in a Blackbird Designs jelly roll tin!! That's what I'll ship them in......

So if you're interested in the scraps, or just the tin, or both...leave a comment and I'll draw a winner at the end of the week!

In the meantime...I gotta tame the MoMo MoJo I'm feeling and get to cutting out applique pieces!! Happy Tuesday!

*Peace!

I'm definitely interested Kim and love those tins. Yummy! My quilting buddy and I will be working on our Heritage quilts in April when we go on a quilting retreat. We can't wait. P.S. Stop showing us new fabric! I'm trying to be good... :-)

I'm a bit behind on my blog reading, so I'm missed some of your posts. Let me add that I just adore Chestnut Hill!! Fantastic finish Kim.
