A visit from "Moda Mark"...and he gave me a give-away for you!

Hi friends,

Don't you LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Moda fabrics???  Barbara Brackman, 3 Sisters, French General, April Cornell, Simpson/Minick,  Erin Michael, Blackbird Designs, Holly Taylor, Laundry Basket, Fig Tree, Anne Sutton/Bunny Hill, Kansas Troubles, Brannock and Patek, Spain, Gervais...

I love all fabric, but the Moda is so consistently lucious and has such a nice hand.

Well, a few days ago, "Moda Mark" buzzed into the store where I work part time and spread a little Moda magic (Mark Pytel, Moda sales rep for our midwestern area).  He had some lovelies to show us and came bearing gifts.  He left me a little something to offer you as a give-away.  Bless him.

 See this beautiful little painted, hinged tin box??
Just look at the candy bar pre-cuts hiding inside (and a cute little potholder...).

Leave a comment before midnight, Saturday, July 23 and tell me your favorite Moda designer.  I will announce the winner Monday morning, July 25, drawn by the random number generator.

(I am not a paid spokesman for Moda...just really love this fabric and appreciate "Moda Mark" giving me a little something to share with you!)

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  1. Please count me in! I love the tin and I love that it contains fabric! There are so many designers that I love from Moda..please don't make me choose :o) Though that said I do like the fabrics by Bonnie and Camille :o)

  2. How generous! If I have to pick a designer it would be..........ohh....ummm....French General. Love the warm reds they use.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Must I choose? I like them all. I have a lot of French General FQ so.... I choose this one1
    have a nice day,

  4. Oooh, I *love* hinged boxes! All the better for starting a new project (and holding the pieces, along with pattern parts & thread & needles, etc). My favorite would have to be Barbara Brackman. LOVE 1800s repros!

  5. Very hard choice, but I will go with Fig Tree. Super cute tin!

    ReplyDelete
  6. That is the most cutest tin I have seen and the fabrics yummy, if I have to choose, I would say Fig Tree.
    I do love them all and always know that Moda comes up with wonderful fabrics.
    My little Grand daughter Sophie ( just turned 4 ) loves fabrics and would adore the tin. She creates with me in my sewing room.
    Thank you for the chance to win this.

    happy stitching

  7. I have recently used Moda fabric for the first time and I have fallen in love with it. Right now I am making several quilts using a Sunkissed Jelly Roll and matching fabric. Can't wait until they are done. I don't know if I have a favorite designer yet, I am still discovering. (I really love the colors in Sunkissed.)

    Thank you Teresa and Moda Mark!

  8. Modas are always such a joy to work with, as you said a lovely hand to them. I'm not one to pay attention to designer names as my tastes varry and am mostly an impulse buyer but it's usually the first section I hit :0) Thank Mark for such a great giveaway!!

  10. What a neat giveaway! I love Moda's 3 Sisters collections. Thanks for hosting this.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I also have many Moda designer favorites but the one I've brought the most ranges of is Fig Tree . Thank you for the great chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love 3 Sisters. I really like the Collections for a Cause by Howard Marcus. They have had special meaning to me. I have been working with "HOPE", as a dear friend has ALS, and I made a picture quilt using this collection. It turned out wonderful!! Thank you for sharing.

  13. Happily using Laundry Basket right now....

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's a tough question, really. They are all up there on my list.....maybe French General a tad higher.

    Thx for the cute giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Choose ONE? I love so many of the designers' work. I guess 3 Sisters is my very very favorite though. Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes I do love Moda fabrics and I love all the designers....I've probably bought fabric from every designer over the years.....wishing I could have just one favorite, I'd have more money in my pocket. Right now...today...I would say Bonnie and Camile....but I really really like the gray in Anne Sutton's 'Puttin on the Ritz' and Edyta Sitar's Laundry Basket fabrics....thank you Teresa and Moda Mark....(:

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow That's a hard choice. I think my favorite would be Jan Patek but then again maybe it's Minnick and Simpson. It's hard to choose just one.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My favorite right now is Sentimental Studios.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love tins, and am clearly addicited to fabric, so you've found the perfect combination! I like anything (and everything), but I will say French General or 3 Sisters. Thanks for the opportunity and thanks to Moda Mark!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh my...well the tin I would enjoy...and my fav would have to be cabbage and roses..
    yes and giving from your heart and Marks..feel it.. lol

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh what a lovely tin. I adore miniatures and the house on the tin is just too sweet.
    My favorite Moda has been Three Sisters and Kansas Troubles, off and on. Depends on the look I'm going for.

  26. Hmm, too many good ones to pick a favorite, so i will tell you who designed my newest moda purchase: Sandy Gervais, Kate Spain, and Sanae. I really enjoy all their fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love fabrics from Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Designs. The color combinations she uses in her fabric lines are intoxicating!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like so many of the designers, but French General is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  29. love me some fig tree, but gervais is fab too. oh heck they are all lovely~thanks for the chance to win! that tin is adorable. i was just thinking, how can i get my hands on something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Moda Mark brings great presents! What a darling little tin and the contents... Yipee! I love lots of the Moda designers and so I have to pick 2 favorites - Minick and Simpson and 3 Sisters

    ReplyDelete

  34. I've never been one to pay lots of attention to a particular fabric manufacturer, but lately I've been smitten with Moda, too!! In fact, just last week I bought four layer cakes. I think Fig Tree is wonderful stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a lovely give-away. I like Barbara brackman and American Jane.

    ReplyDelete
  36. How nice of Mark, how lucky for us. I don't think I have a favorite. Every time I think I find one that's my favorite, yet another new line comes out that I love. Lather, rinse and repeat, and repeat and repeat......

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like a lot of the designers, but I've bought the most from Barbara Brackman's lines.

    ReplyDelete
  38. So hard to choose just one :-) French General and Fig Tree are both at the top of my list....maybe Fig Tree wins out this week. Such beautiful summer fabrics. Thank you and Mark! for the chance to win this sweet little box with the candy bars in it. What a special treat!

    ReplyDelete
  39. cute cute....Just found your blog and already following it. Love Moda and that hinged box is darling1

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh a favorite.. ugh I don't know I do love the soft colors of Fig Tree though.. so today I will pick that one.. ask me tomorrow, and I will be in love with another one.. that is why I'm addicted to fabric..

    ReplyDelete
  41. How cute! I am having a hard time choosing a favorite! I love Fig Tree, and Minick & Simpson, and Sandy Gervais, and French General... but right this moment 3 Sisters has my attention! LOL Thanks for the fun!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh -- definitely Three Sisters -- no, wait, maybe it's April Cornell. But then again ....

    I just can't choose. If I find any Moda on a sale shelf, I'm doomed and I have become a huge fan of their solids at any price. I'm sure there is a 12 step program for it but I don't want any part of it!

  43. Sunkissed by Sweetwater is my favorite line, but I don't knoe the designers name inless it is sweetwater!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That was sweet of him! I LOVE Kate Spain (but Sandy Gervais is a VERY close second!). Thanks for thinking of us!

    ReplyDelete
  45. That is such a hard question! I can't pick just one! It's got to be somewhere between French General, 3 Sisters and BasicGrey .... but Sweatwater ..... sorry, just can't pick one alone lol

    ReplyDelete
  46. Only one?? Bonnie and Camille or Fig Tree or...Nope, can't do it, can't pick just one!

    ReplyDelete
  47. It is hard for me to pick just one, but I am always drawn to Kansas Troubles. Great giveaway. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  48. You're right: Moda fabrics are the best! I can't begin to pick my favorite, but that said, I do have a ton of French General in my stash! I am in the process of working on two quilts using their fabric, with ideas for a few more in the works. Thanks to FG, I've become "all about the red!" Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The container is just adorable...I am a Black Bird Designs fanatic and love really all of Moda. Kate is right there is just no one favorite designer!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have to be honest, I love all Moda fabrics and designers but i'm going to choose 3 Sisters and Minimick/Simpson.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Please count me in for the drawing...I love all Moda fabrics and those "candy bars" are zero calories! I'd have to say 3 Sisters might be my favorite, ask me tomorrow tho and I'd probably say Fig Tree. I'm fickle like that.

    ReplyDelete
  69. oh my gosh I just love that tin! Moda fabrics are wonderful, I love the feel of them and always can count on the quality . My favorite designer thats hard but right now I have to say Modas Collection for a Cause lines based on antique quilts owned by Mark Dunn and of course Barbara Brackman, and Primitive Gatherings, Lisa Bonnegan to die for new lines, well then theres jan patek and Minimick and simpson and ah 3 sisters and Sandy Gervais...ok you get the idea...
    Thanks

  71. Oh that hinged tin is just great. I can think of a dozen uses for that. I love all Moda. I really like Kate Spain and have some of her Flurry fabrics and am waiting for Terrain. I'm also waiting for Flora by Lauren and Jesse Jung to come out this fall.

I have so many favorites, as Moda is just the most wonderful thing EVER, but I guess if I have to narrow it down, I will say Bonnie and Camille....or Blackbird....or Fig Tree.

  78. Love the tin. Usually love any Moda fabric - but Barbara Brackman and Blackbird Designs are two of my favorites. I just know that Barbara Brackman puts in a lot of history with her designs and Blackbird Designs are usually so romantic.

    Thanks for the chance.
