Fabric: Jovial by Basic Grey for Moda Fabrics

The magazine is full of inspiration! So many techniques and styles to choose from.

In Celebration - I am giving away a few prizes.

Prize #1 - An advance copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 5


Prize #2 "One-Yard Wonders" This is a great book full of projects that each only require 1 yard of fabric. The authors are from way up here in Minnesota.


Prize #3 - These great "100% Handmade" labels from Moda.


Prize #4 - This fun decal for your vehicle. "This is how I roll".. with a rotary cutter. Makes me giggle every time I look at it.
