Moda Love My Day - Almost to the Goodies




Welcome to my day at the Moda Love Blog Tour

Our fearless blog leader Lissa gave us a list of questions.  
And I can't use the word Love in any context without bringing in my family.


Our oldest son Brian (here holding Brooke) and his lovely wife Shannon, 


our daughter Kelly (mother of Jake & Zoie)


And youngest son Max (in the white shirt) with his lovely fiance Valerie.


8 of our 9 grandchildren (that's Brooke in Brian Jr's arm) - Brian Jr, Lily (in the pink), Gabriel, Cullen, Quinn, Jake (who is 18 and now has very short hair) and Zoie with Sumo.


Our pesky dogs, Dobby, Spike & Hunny


my chickens


and bunnies and


living where I do in the middle of nowhere with all its space.  And living here has its drawbacks too ..(horrid internet for one, dusty cars for another!).


And my main love - my wonderful supportive husband Pep - seen here at one of many Markets with our friend Bruce Gervais and their green friend..


as well as working for Moda - just the best fabric company in the world. 
Its an honor to be in it's family. ...  Best designers too.

"What fuels you to create?" - my life and the fabric.  
I love the colors of the country and want use them in my fabrics and my quilts.

And since my life is so full - so are my quilts.  



This is "Jan's Moda Love Quilt".  It uses a Charm Pack from Castlewood, my latest fabric line.  
To download Modas directions for the background click here.
To download the appliqué and border instructions click here 

"When I teach classes or workshops I love....."  I don't get to travel and teach as much as I used to but I love appliqué and helping people learn the little touches that makes it easier.  So I started filming tutorials - on the basics and tips of little things that make it easier.  

And to watch my tutorial on Jan's Moda Love Quilt click here.




And sometimes a lot of my "Loves" come together - like sitting and watching TV with Pep at night and sewing the binding on a quilt - with a little help from Dobby, our Welsh Corgi.



Now for the good part - the Giveaway part.
If you watched the tutorial you saw me use a partially pieced quilt.
Make a "Moda Loving" comment and we'll have the random number generator do a drawing around noon CST tomorrow.  If you win we'll send a quilt kit using those pieces as well as the applique and border fabrics AND this Fat 1/4 bundle

You can order a kit for my Moda Love quilt by clicking here 
If you win the drawing, we'll refund your money.

If you haven't had a chance to follow me along on the blog tour each day, you might scroll down and see my other Castlewood quilts.  I posted one each day.

Good heavens and don't forget to hop on over and visit

Sweetwater

See you tomorrow.

  1. I am loving how each of the Moda designers took the same pattern and made it completely different, using their own creativity! Sometimes I've hardly been able to tell it is the same pattern! It is so fun to see the unique ways each of you make it your own!! LOVE it!

  4. I have purchased several Moda jelly rolls and made fifteen beach bags using the various combinations of the fabrics.

  5. I love what you did with your Moda love quilt assignment and love the new fabric line, too! It's a perfect wallhanging and would look wonderful in my living room - I'd love to win the kit and bundle! Thank you for the opportunity.

  10. Thanks for the tutorial....I love the method for making the berries and I love your fabric line! So very pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm so glad I watched your tutorial - doing the applique before you have the whole quilt top sewn together looks so much easier - not as much fabric to maneuver through the machine, since I like to machine applique. I also loved the idea of using the Avery mailing labels as a template.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love that you put applique` in your quilt and thanks for the tips. Do you leave the paper circle on the quilt? Love your knew line of fabric! Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow, Castlewood is lovely for sure. The colors are perfect. Thanks for a chance to win.

  21. It makes total sense to do the appliqué on the strips instead of piecing the whole thing together first! Why didn't I think of that? Love the project a lot. I do needle turn as well. It is the best method for,me. Thanks for the chance to win.

  23. I haven't tried appliqué before, but I want too, this project looks like it would be a great place to start, and in such a wonderful fabric line. I love the pictures of your family, especially the dogs, they look tired out after a hard day playing with your grand children!

  24. I LOVE how you made this Quilt, using a Charm pack, into your own unique style - adding a house and birds on branches etc. LOVE your bias maker - (what a time saver) and your tip on making the berries! Thanks for a chance to win your wonderful giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Can't believe I'm #1 in the comment section, but lucky me, I got first look at the family photo album, and LOVED doing so. I have one husband of 59 years, 4 children, 10 grandkids and 6 great granddaughters, who are usually the recipients of my quilting projects,
    and all the love in my heart. Moda has been my go-to fabric company since I started quilting about 10 years ago, rather late in life, but have always been involved in sewing, and crafting of one kind or another. I would like to thank you for the giveaway opportunity and hope the number generator falls on 1 this time.
