Scrap Quilt Challenge Sponsor Spotlight–Moda



I think that every quilter of this millennium knows about the premium quality of Moda fabric, the great online presence of the designers and the generous nature of the company.  BUT, just in case you didn’t know where to find those resources, I am going to give you a little tour-o-the Moda I love.

Many Moda designers have a great online presence.  You can find all the current Moda designers over on the Moda Blog.  Click on each designer to read more about them and get links to their recent lines. 

You’ll find lots of Moda goodness on the blog.  You can find the links for all their social media channels where they are sure to use the hashtag #showmethemoda .  Remember to use that when you blog your creations from the Moda lines!  You’ll also find freebie projects there.

Speaking of freebies, I think everyone I know loves the Moda Bake Shop blog.  It is the original indie pattern outlet for using precuts.  You can search by designer (chef) or precut (bakery item).

I’m loving the most recent recipe that’s posted!  I think you could definitely go scrappy on those stars!

I mentioned earlier about the generosity of this company.  Several years ago Moda spearheaded Just One Star to coordinate the donation of quilts to our nation’s heros.  They had a goal of receiving enough blocks to make 100 quilts in 100 days.  They received over 15,000 blocks-far exceeding the number of blocks needed to create the planned 100.  In addition to this effort for our Veterans, Moda’s founder designs one-two lines each year with a portion donated to charity.  These are collectively known as Collections for a Cause.  Look for those in your LQS on your next visit!

Moda has generously donated a huge prize pack for one of our Scrap Quilt Challenge random winners.  Check it out!

 

We began our business with Moda and have been a loyal customer since day 1.  We never have to worry about service, quality or being uniformed.  They are a super partner to growing small shops as well as the large ones.  We are honored they have partnered with us to make the Scrap Quilt Challenge even more awesome this year!  We hope you will check out all the social media channels & #showmethemoda!

Moda is awesome, as a company and fabric product. Mr. Moda presented at Quilters Take Manhattan on Saturday, Sept 20. He showed the vintage and antique quilts he's collected and uses for the Collections for a Cause lines. The entire presentation, and the quilts, were wonderful.
