  1. I would love to quilt the large stack of tops sitting beside the machine. However, I will probably work on several more tops to add t that pile. That fabric is gorgeous!!

  2. I am getting ready to make a Double Wedding Ring quilt for my daughter and her husband who just got married. I’ve done lots of complex quilts and garment sewing, but I have never done a DWR and I’m a bit nervous!

  3. I will be making a donation item for a month long silent auction for a local library in March. Working on these fabrics would be sure to brighten a gray, snowy, cold day in January.
    Thank you.

  4. I’m planning to finish a quilt for my sister. It was inspired by George Rodrigue’s Blue Dogs, and it has been in the works for a long time. Of course, I’ll also find myself dipping into other quill projects, both new and UFOs, as winter settles in…

  5. I have a couple of Christmas wall hangings to finish and I have a Disappearing 4-patch quilt that I pieced to quilt. After the holidays I want to make a couple new wall hangings for my home.

  6. I have 15 quilt tops cut out for the graduating seniors from church. Hope to complete those along with some chenille style table runners and some window valances for my daughters new place.

  7. Finally finish picking out material and make the quilt for our Mater bedroom! Hubby said as soon as it is done we can get the room painted! I think he is afraid I will change my mind on the paint color but if the quilt is done then no paint color change halfway through….

  8. I am working on a Christmas table top quilt for my mother in law. Also a lap quilt for my step mom. I am hoping to also get another lap quilt done for my sister in law. Lotsto do!

  9. I plan to make a quilt for my daughter using flamingo themed fabrics and twin-sized quilts for the beds my granddaughter and grandson use when they stay with us.

  10. I am making 4 quilts…..one for each of my grown children. One just needs to be bound, one other top is fine. 3rd top still needs borders added. The last one I haven’t even decided on a block yet. :/

  11. I have two quilts tops ready to send for quilting. I will be attending a quilt retreat next weekend to make a jelly roll quilt but have also gotten more material from Moda to make two more quilts.

  12. My winter quilting plans include doing some art quilting (I have several ideas in my head and on paper, awaiting translation into fiber), finishing some UFO’s and starting some more! This bundle is calling to me to be made into a springtime themed piece.

  13. This would truly be amazing! My youngest daughter (of 6) is expecting our 10th grandchild in April. I’ve been trying to decide what fabric to use to make the nursery items in modern designs. We won’t know until day before Thanksgiving if it’s a boy or girl but it wouldn’t matter with this yummy line! What a super giveaway!! She’s almost all of the way across the country from me and it would be such a nice surprise for a young couple who has nothing much.

  14. Just made a list this morning of projects I want to work on or complete. Top of my list is a challenge with a friend where we are both using matching linen napkins as a starting point. No rules; not really sure where to start!

  15. I make community quilts for our guild to distribute to various agencies around town plus I will be working on 2 quilts for our guild’s annual show.
    thanks!

  16. Oh yeah! Count me in. LOVE LOVE LOVE fabric!
    I am making some reusable patchwork and quilted grocery bags. Our city has outlawed the disposable plastic kind. I am using some upholestry fabric from IKEA as inspiration. Can’t wait to take these to the store!!

  17. I am making a quilt of my own design based on the Grandmother’s Flower Garden – I underwent thyroid failure this year and a quilting friend brought me fabrics while I was in the hospital. One of them was a batik with a pattern resembling life savers so I am calling it the Life Saver quilt!

  18. I have made Prayer flags for a while and I am having fun with the concept of the minis.
    Had a party last week and set up a table with some forpeople to make to design their own if they were drawn to them. It was fun

  19. I have some baby quilts and at least 2 twin size quilts I need to quilt. I also have 2 Christmas quilts I want to put together and quilt this winter. Thank you for the great giveaway and I will be looking for the new issue.

  20. I have made some bags which have been fun
    I have also made prayer flags for a couple of years and having fun with the minis. Held a party last week and set up a table for people to make their own and we had fun with that

  22. Hi Kristine! I am currently working on a quilt which will be a wedding present for my nephew. It features Cardinals in uneven 9 patch as that is his favorite baseball team. The fabric choices are a little odd with birds and leaves, but the quilt design is traditional. I hope he likes it. After I finish that, I need to make a quilt for me. I love bold colors and modern floral fabrics. I would be thrilled to win this fabric bundle. Thanks for the chance to win the modern Moda bundle!!

  23. I am new to quilting. I have only finished two quilts. I have 4 quilts I plan on doing this winter. I would love to win & add to my stash for a future project

  24. Recently I’ve been unhappy with how my pieced projects have turned out. So I’m going back to basics and start a simple quilt of squares to work on cutting and piecing.

  25. Yesterday, I completed the first six blocks of a new “modern” Christmas quilt. After that, I have to get started on baby quilts for my first grandchild coming in March!

  29. Have two baby quilts to make. One baby due in Jan 14, have fabric, working on pattern! usually the other way around! but fabric just jumped into basket and said make me! Other one is from amazing book by Keiko Goke. Guess I have to get to work, but could find time for this lovely bundle of fabric!

  30. Beautiful fabric. I am presently working on a mixed media quilted wall hanging for a birthday gift, a quilt for my son, and need to get two more quilts going for each of my daughters. I have 2 UFO’s I need to finish too lol Thank you for the great giveaway.

  31. I’m finishing “slabs” (Sunday Morning Quilts) for a just for me quilt. Lots of smaller projects to try new techniques too. I love the wool batting I’ve put into a queen size and lap quilt. They really are warmer without being heavy. The colors in Moda’s Mixed Bag are luscious!!

  34. I need to finish a prayer quilt & do a baby quilt for my church sewing group & then finish a couple Of things for myself & do a dog quilt for him to lay on. That is a great looking fabric stack!

  35. Last year my son married a girl that has four children (a boy and three girls). This year, they had a daughter of their own. I will be busy making quilts for all my new grandchildren.

  36. I’m a small project-get it done type person. I’ll be making mug rugs, table runners and placemats. After the holidays, I may get to make a wall hanging or two. I’d like to make some baby quilts to give as gifts. It depends on my after the holiday hours at work. Thanks for the opportunity to win the bundle of Moda fabric.

  37. I have some wallhangings that I need to get quilted and ready to hang. I also have some new projects that I want to get started on — quilts and a new bag.
    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  38. I’ve been staying with a daughter while she has some health problems and helping to raise her 9.5 & 2.5 year old girls. Since she’s a single mom, it’s rough. Every day I get to sew just a little, but I am about to wind up and take off for Christmas! I’m determined to make something every, single, day!

  39. I am in the process of re-establishing my sewing corner. I’m starting with a wonderful reversible bag with asymmetric handles, one which threads through the other to close the bag. A new collection of fabrics would be a grand inspiration to me or anyone who sews. Thank you for your generous giveaway.

  40. WOW…this is such happy fabric for winter sewing. If I had this stack of fat quarters, I think it would become a couple of quilts for Project Linus as soon as possible. Some little kid would just love it and get a giant hug! Thanks.. hummmm I think I better check out this magazine!!! cheers su ‘-}

  41. I have 2 quilt tops to hand quilt…I have 3 purses to make and I want to make myself a flannel lap blanket…but as usual I probably wont get to the one for myself.

  43. I am working on mug rugs for an online swap, Christmas stockings for an online swap, quilted boxes to fill with homemade bread and jelly/cookies/candy for Christmas gifts, gifts for my grandson’s preschool teachers and all the other teachers who work there as his Mom is the Program Director and I know all the teachers and office help and love to help them out. I am also working on quilts and pillow cases for my 2 kids and anything else I can get under the machine. Can you guess I love to sew and be in my sewing room with my grandson, who pretends to sew(5 years old in October). We have sew much fun together and he gets so excited over everything I make. Thanks for the opportunity. Jackie and Cash

  62. I have 2 flannel quilts that I want to get done (one will be a duplicate of one I made and gave away!). These are in addition to the Project Linus quilts I have planned.

  64. This winter I will be making modern quilts for my 2 nephews,weddings. I am a beginner quilter, so my plan is to make simple patterns but striking. The size will be 72″ x 72″, large enough to snuggle together on the couch. I love the bright colors in this bundle.

  65. I am going to be working on a quilt to give to my husband at our wedding. He helped me pick out the fabric, and I think he promptly forgot about it so it will be a good surprise!

  66. Forgot to add what I am working on this winter: right now making yo-yo Christmas trees for 5 people and 3 different trees for each. Next is finishing a fabric garland for my tree. Then I will be making some art quilts for gifts. Hope I get it all done in time. After all those are done, a present for myself yet to be determined!

  67. I’m planning to do some improv quilting this winter. I have done some before, but I really want to create some large and small improv quilts. I love modern quilts!

  68. I am planning to work on a StrataVarious quilt as well as a batik. Then I just might start cutting a bag of scrappy charms into tumblers. This fabric is very happy.

  69. This Winter I am sewing a lap quilt for me in bright, fresh colors, and a couple of Spring dresses from Deborah Moebes sewing class, a couple of hand sewn applique wool cushions and probably a couple of new Spring clutches. I love sewing in Winter!

  70. I plan on organizing my sewing room (aka my STUDIO) and digging out all my UFO’s by the end of this year. After that, I will have seen all my fabric again and get newly inspired to create in 2014..

  71. If the colors are anything like the ones in the photo, definitely work on a summery project, maybe a picnic throw to enjoy the fresh air and sun. I will be dreaming of lovely warm weather in the winter!

  72. Let’s see, I found a couple great patterns and some lovely fabric so will be sewing a couple outfits. I’m also planning on a coverlet for Mom and perhaps doing some embroidered tops/pants for her as well :).

  73. This winter I plan on finishing a blue sampler quilt made with wool batting. And, I hope to start working on a more modern quilt with a fat quarter set I got last year. I’ve got a lot of smaller holiday sewing to do too!

  74. For Christmas, I am making quilts for my two great-granddaughters. For the 8 year-old, who loves marine life, a multi blue and blue-green background with dolphins and whales, jumping out of “bubbles” across the quilt. For the six year-old, who dreams of elephants, a red and orange multi pieced background, with Indian elephants, with multi colored carpets on their backs ,appliqued onto the background. The girls share a room, so their quilts will be complimentary colors with similar designs but totally expressive of who they are.

  75. I am finally going to quilt and finish my very first quilt top. It was done many many years ago using Christmas fabric. It has been in a box all these years so I thought I would finally finish it and display it.

  76. My niece just moved into her new home. The house is over 100 years old and need a lot of repair So for, it has been a lot of work and there is a lot more to do.
    I plan on making her a wall quilt to go in her kitchen. I will brighten up the room and also show her how proud I am of her taking the next step in her life and becoming a home owner.

  77. Our first grandson has arrived and those fabrics would make the perfect baby collection for him. We waited a long time for this little guy and he is our miracle baby

  78. I would use it to make a quilt for my cousin’s baby who turns one in January. She’s having a rought itme as she goes back to work and the cheerful colours would be perfect for a little boy!

  79. I would like to experiment with making a modern quilted coat and bag for the cold winter months. I have a pattern that uses zippers for the side seams and double zippers at that so it is a reversible coat. The coat pattern is one very large piece that folds into a coat so there are no set in sleeves. It is a really cool pattern that deserves a modern quilt to be made from.
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  80. Went to a sew and grow market day and saw skirts and children’s cloths made using patchwork. Now just have to indulge my sewing patchwork passion in fashion. Beautiful functional items. Can,t wait to begin

  81. I plan on making wall hangings this winter. I plan on adding beads also. One will be a unique type of crazy quilt. Planning on adding lace, hand sewing, embroidery, with lots of beads and sequins.. But also plan on incorporating demensional blocks.

  83. My two granddaughters each have a brother or sister coming and at our Halloween family gathering they each informed me that “the new baby will need a (patchwork) blanket so that I don’t have to share.” This bundle would let them each choose the colors.

  84. I am working on an applique quilt that I am piecing by hand, and hope to quilt by hand. I am also hoping to work on a string quilt, which is a technique that I have never tried before.

  85. I am a newbie quilter and caught the bug only 9 months ago with my first quilt, a baby quilt. Now I am finding the delight of quilting everyday. If I am not sewing, I am piecing in my head with a new idea. I can’t even write all of the ideas down as they are flooding my brain. Since I am so new, my “stash” is very small. I would love to have these great modern looking fabrics to continue my exploration of quilting and the world that is so much bigger than I could have imagined when I first started. My next project is a lap quilt with Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I am going to start just as soon it as I get the binding on the full quilt that is almost finished!

  86. Hi, My plans and projects are already under way, I have made a quilt for my in laws as Father in law has had a stroke and it is a good way to keep him warm. I have also made and about to quilt 5 wreath wall hangings for family members to enjoy over the festive season and then on to my appliqué quilt for myself. Then it looks like I shall start to purchase even more fabric in the January sales.
    Wishing you all a Merry Chistmas and a prosperous New Year!

  87. I am planning to finish some UFO’s that are in my sewing closet. I’ve decided 2014 will be the year of the UFO in my sewing room. Some of these poor things have been hidden away so long I hope I can remember what I planned to finish them. If not, I’m going to consider it to be another creative opportunity! Some may end up as charity quilts or quilts for the cats (maybe they’ll leave mine alone), but at least they’ll be finished!

  88. I belong to the Warwick Quilter’s Guild in Warwick,NY. their “Show
    and Tell” is constant inspiration. I plan to quilt in my newly acquired
    sunroom this winter. PS: (Many ideas are floating around in my head)
    ONe of my first projects will be a quilted pocketbook. Have been longin to make one for a while.

  89. Well, I have several projects scheduled for this winter. A my little pony wall hanging for my granddaughter, a rag blue jean quilt for my grandson, a sewing machine cover for me and four projects started but not finished. I plan on working hard and finishing all so that I can start on some other kits I found when cleaning out my sewing room! Lots of projects but not enough time!!!!

  90. I am trying to make 2 to 3 donation quilts a month, toddler to large lap size. They go to underprivileged in our community. The hardest part is coordinating fabric from my stash that will be appealing to the target group. The next hardest is the machine quilting….I tend to work too long at one sitting and have sore muscles for days afterward. Learning to pace myself!!

  93. Am working on my UFOs this winter…must clean the closet so I can get more new fabric. 🙂 These fabrics would be so cheery to work with on a gray winter day!

  94. I’ll be quilting my already pieced tree skirt and starting the new Bonnie Hunter mystery and I’d also like to do some garment sewing, and on, and on……..

  95. I usually want to make bright, cheery wall hangings or lap quilts when it’s dreary out. Plus, my Eastern Star group is talking about a Craft Sale/Quilt Raffle next Fall so I need to get hoppin’!

  96. I am making bowl cosy’s for my family and friends. I took a quilting class about 2 years ago and have not had time to quilt. I am not currently working and someone gave me one and I loved it. Then I found some material I had and am making some small purses for my mom and sister and finishing up a log cabin quilt for my husband. It feels nice to get back to hand making Christmas gifts.

  97. My quilting project for this winter is to make mini quilt squares made of 100% cotton, including batting, that will be bound with purchased bias tape to use as pot holders. Most of them will be given as small Christmas gifts but I hope to make enough to have some to give as gifts for other occasions throughout the year.

    Most of my quilts are pieced and quilted by hand but, for this project, I’ll be using my sewing machine to speed up the process.

  98. I have to finish piecing my grandson’s sport themed quilt first. For now I am waiting for my new sewing room to be built (just moved to a smaller house) and then I need to try something new to me. Not sure what that will be. Plus, on my list is the making of some POV quilts which I am hoping will involve a few friends also.

  99. I’m making a cover for my boyfriends new Kindle e-reader for Christmas. Also a tote for a friend to take a casserole to church pot-lucks (we have a lot at our church!) as a thank-you for her help.

  100. I plan to make a Double Wedding Ring top as well as a designed by me bargello.
    These are two of my all time favorite patterns and I’m not getting any younger!

  101. I think this winter is going to be an ever-growing pile of UFO’s. The only thing that holds up the table they are piled on, is the pile of stuff underneath. I’m beginning to think I have QADD–quilting attention deficit disorder (not intending to offend anyone).

  102. I’m working on a flannel bubble quilt. I’ll also make some pot holders for Christmas gifts. In between, I’ll be dreaming of the beautiful things I could make with this fabric

  103. I’ll be working with my mother (age 94) to make quilts that are donated to my quilt guild for a variety of charities. I’d also like to finish the quilted duvet cover for my own bed. It’s a UFO that’s been in the works for quite a while. In between other projects I’m making pot holders featuring appliqued “funky chickens” for my chicken loving friends. It will be a busy winter!

  104. I have worked on a quilt for Camp Erin with some friends and plan to finish a banner to comemrorate a friend’s adoption of a 2 year old. I would also like to finish a holiday table runner.

  105. I am going to sew a modern-inspired king-size quilt for our bedroom. And on the other side of the modern spectrum, I have a lot of vintage fabric that I hope I can use for pillows and other projects.

  106. I hope to complete one wall quilt before Christmas and one before Valentine’s Day. But would also like to complete some fleece shawls with crochet edges.
    Oops, I forgot the competition quilt or garment that has to be done by December 15th! I’d better get back to work.

  107. I am in process of hand quilting a queen size quilt. I am also working on an applique sampler and a small twin size quilt for my grandson. I never seem to run out of projects to keep me busy. I would love to win this fabric so that I could plan some more projects

  108. I am new to quilting and am making several projects to give to grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Have 19 families to work with and will make caddies for walkers, aprons and quilted Bible covers. Love your magazine!

  109. A quilt for my sick mommy our family suffers from mitochondrial disease. . So she needs a quilt finally.. Im just learning and have made about 6 quilts so far.. my heart will be so happy to surprise her. .. fingers crossed this will helo our family

  110. Right now my crafts, sewing machine and furniture are in storage and I am homeless (but not worthless). I am 64. I was laid off my 20 year job, then the house I was renting sold in 1 day. I am strong and have tremendous faith that if I win that fabric I will be using it in a new apartment soon! I do have a P.O. box, so let me know if I win the fabric! I donated some of my finished quilt tops to 2 local guilds so they could finish them for charity quilts, turning my bad luck into opportunity!

  112. I’m in the process of quilting 4 quilts, making two others, and have many, many plans for more! I also want to make a few tote bags and pouches. Think I’ll get it all done this winter?

  113. I am wanting to make a Swoon quilt and the Urban Abacus quilt. I also am planning on making a Chevron quilt and a Carpenter’s Star. Happy sewing to me.

  114. I am making lap quilts for a granddaughter and her husband, then a baby quilt for another granddaughter’s baby boy, due in January. Then I want to make several vests for myself before getting back to working on UFOs.

  115. A quilt for my 94 year old mother’s carehome bed would be nice. She has the bed away from the window and those bright and cheerful colors would give it a much needed uplift.

  116. I am making granddaughter dresses and baby doll dresses that match. I am also making baby doll blankets. These beautiful fabrics would be great for this. I am also stating a new quilt using the swoon pattern and finishing the quilting of another UFO.

  117. Hope to quilt my tropical inspired quilt top and make a quilt for one sister and a piano runner for my twin. Also currently working on a Christmas quilt and hope to do a Christmas runner.
    The fabric bundle is gorgeous and says “modern”, I would probably use some blacks with it.

  118. this would be such lovely fabric to have in hand! The colors are gorgeous and cheery! Just the thing to fight the winter blues….

    I’m planning on making two quilts: a lap quilt (log cabin) and a hexagon quilt (for our bed). It’ll take most of the winter to get them made.

  119. I have been working on sewing a personal quilt for all 10 of my Grandchildren. I have been quilting for about a year. I made a quilt for four of them by now and I am trying to get two more done for Christmas. I also made my mom a personal quilt for Mothers Day and did a baby blanket for my two youngest Grandbabies. I am making my first full size quilt now too. It is a memory quilt made from all my friend’s late husbands clothing. It’s a true patchwork quilt! I could really use the mixed fabric bundle!

  120. I have 2 wall hangings just need the quilting and binding done, a table runner that I am piecing and working on blocks for a quilt sampler. I love to have several things in various stages so I can work on whatever I am in the mood for on a given day. I will finish a project within a month or a few weeks before I need to have it done. Free motion quilting is especially one of those things that I have to be in the right state of mind in order to enjoy the work while I am doing it.

  121. My sister is dying of cancer and I have been making quilts that will be going to cancer patients undergoing chemo. I donate them to Victoriaquiltscanada.ca
    It makes me feel like I am doing something at a time in my life that I feel so helpless.
    No matter who wins the material, I am sure they will use it to make something
    lovely. Donna in Canada

  122. I am practicing my quilting skills on a modern quilt layout with greys and lime greens. Also hoping to finish a flower garden layout before Christmas. I wish to free motion quilt that also so enhance my skills. They need some work! Laura

  123. I have friends that are having their first grandbabies this year and would love to use these beautiful fabrics for baby quilts and gifts! Thank you for this opportunity.
    Annette

  124. What a beautiful bundle! Makes me wan tot start a spring quilt! But this winter.. I am finishing a bargello for my daughter, a civil war for my son and a purple flower block for my guest bedroom…AND I have a christmas quilt designed and plan to start that next month! Plus some needle books (fabric tiny books for holding needles!)

  125. I am planning on making two door hangings to position on the back of the bedroom doors. This is so when the grandchildren are over they can feel good about their doors being shut as they will have a nice picture quilt hanging to explore.

  126. I am in the process of designing a queen-sized quilt that will use up most of my fabric scraps from previous projects. I piece and quilt by hand so it will take me at least through the winter to complte.

  127. So far, I’m planning on 2 Penny Patch Throw sized quilts from a quilt along at stitchedincolor.com, a mystery quilt being offered by Bonnie Hunter at quiltville, a Memory quilt for my cousin, and a few other little projects thrown in for good measure (eventually, maybe, I’ll sort through my UFO pile and finish one of those?)

  128. I make lap quilts from my stash – I give them to the women’s contact society shelter in Vancouver for the displaced family members and women in jeopardy.

  129. Having just finished my very first quilt I am now totally hooked ! I’m going to quilt a patchwork tote bag for my girlfriends 50th birthday and then I’m onto quilts for my children and nieces and nephews.

  130. Now that gardening and summer is over I plan to quilt, quilt, quilt and concentrate on UFO’s. I am anxious to try new things but want to finish the UFO’s first.

  131. Wow loaded question..need to sew two quilts for Project Linus,,finish all quilt tops and bind many projects. Then I want to sit down and design purses..oh yes I would love to do my Molly Mine quilt that I purchased embarrassingly two years ago. Sew many projects sew little time!

  133. Hi I plan on making stash busting quilts for Project Linus ( that’s security blankets/quilts for seriously ill children , and sometimes their families too.)
    Anne

  134. I’m making lap quilts and table runners now that I will give as Christmas gifts. Come January I will sew a quilt or two for myself! Love these fabrics and the whole modern quilt aesthetic.

  135. I need to finish a Thanksgiving Wallhanging and complete two Christmas quilts. This bundle is wonderfully cheerful, and would be great for a Spring Fling. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

  136. I’m looking forward to sitting back while it snows working on my ‘stack of coins’ quilt, quilting a throw for my daughter, and finishing my mom’s Dresden Plate that she started 50 years ago. Yummy stack of fabric – delicious colors; I love the brights.

  139. If I won this luscious stack, I would start “modernizing” the quilts I make.. I would probably mix these with fabric from my stash and browse magazines and websites for a modern design that really speaks to me. Fingers crossed!

  140. This winter I am finally going to finish a modern/futuristic quilt and I WILL put the binding on two quilts that are finally finished! This bundle really gets me to dreaming about what I could design and make with such beautiful fabrics! I do hope I win! I just love dreaming of quilts…and quilting my dreams! Karen in Indianapolis

  141. I plan to sew a quilt for my 28 year old son. It will be taupes and greys with a circular motif.
    I also plan to make a bunch of baby quilts in the modern way.

  142. What a yummy fabric bundle! I have a whole bunch of projects for this winter, two t-shirt quilts, a flannel quilt for a friend, a 60th birthday quilt for my brother and, in my free time a few bags and purses!

  143. I plan on making my first modern quilt using warm, delicious tutti-fruti colors that remind me of a Caribbean beach. Maybe it will “warm up” my sewing room!

  144. I want to make a very large quilt replicating Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”.
    I have been planning this project for awhile. It will hang on our wall in our family room where the ceilings are 2 stories tall.

  145. It’s always hard to come up with something to give my daughter and her new husband as they live with several cats in a small NYC apartment. She’s a screenwriter and he’s an actor, thus they really enjoy the arts opportunities in New York. So I’ve decided to make a quilted picnic blanket which holds a couple of wine glasses, a bottle of wine. and rolls up to be a shoulder tote. I’ve done the design, but haven’t settled on the fabric. This combo would make a perfect blanket to be a fashion statement when toting and and even more of one when spread out in Central Park!

  146. Working on Christmas presents now and have (2) t-shirt quilts and a baby quilt to make before Christmas. I’ve been looking for bright and bold for a quilt for myself. The Moda Mixed Bag looks perfect. What a great give away.

  147. Would enter my quilting results in the Spring Student Art Show at my local college. Haven’t decided exactly what free motion design to construct but usually the fabric speaks to me and points me in a winning direction. Use of Moda fabric bundles would be a new and exciting adventure for me. Would love to see what the bundle whispers in my ear.

  148. I am finishing a batik quilt for my great-niece, starting another one for my cousin who is recovering from back surgery, going to make a series of small wall hangings based on some cute notecards I received, and start a quilt for myself for a change!

  149. I am working on 2 simple doll quilts right now and need to start on quilts for my twin granddaughters for their birthdays later in 2014. And they won’t be the same, because these are two very different, special girls!

  150. I plan to make my niece a bright flower block quilt, my son a purple and green bargello lap quilt plus an assortment of small quilted storage containers. Before the holidays I’ll be concentrating on clothing items for gifting.

  151. This winter, I am going to sew a new cover for my sling swing (the old one has seen better days !!) and hopefully some summer dresses !! I have been working on a black/white/grey quilt-I hope to finish the top and then decide how to quilt it. I need a new spring jacket-think how pretty it will be made out of some new fabric-hint-hint !! 🙂

  152. It gets cold and wet here in Colorado Springs during the winter months. I look forward to getting several quilting/sewing projects done while staying warm with a cup of cocoa. Happy Holidays everyone!!

  153. I have finally collected enough blues to make a drunkard’s path quilt. I am fascinated with the multitude of variations that can be made from the template for the drunkard’s path. A believe a mathematician had to have had some input in developing it (says I, a retired math teacher!). I have so many holiday gifts to complete, but I continue to be drawn to make “just one more”. Does quilting have a higher force? So glad that winter is here and I have a good excuse for staying in and quilting.

  154. I need to make some charity quilts for my guild and winter is the perfect time to just sit and sew when it’s cold outside.
    The fabrics are beautiful and would make beautiful charity quilts and the children would love them, they are so bright and cheery.

  155. I plan on working on a quilt for my bedroom-green and peach colors, a lap quilt for my hubby (unofficial quilt of valor) and a group effort with our sewing group at church for our raffle next year at Christmas. That will be done in fall colors in a brick pattern.

  156. I’ve already begun my winter crafting — patchwork quilts for my three grandchildren, placemats for the same and their parents that are a Christmas design on one side and personalized on the other side, and a few other assorted Christmas gifts for family. Once all that’s done, I can begin a quilt (or two or three) for the bedrooms in my own home. Whew!

  157. As usual, I’ll be helping to make a heap of quilts from donated fabric for the church to send to people in need worldwide. I’ll also be making bed quilts for my grandchildren who are moving to their new place soon. In the works is my first attempt at an applique quilt for our bed. The snow is already falling!
    J Fossey

  158. Right now I’m trying to finish up half a dozen Christmas projects. By January I’ll be ready to work with some nice bright colors like Moda’s Mixed Bag!

  159. I have a stack of quilts that I want to make in the next few months – atomic by Jacquie Gering, rubik’s crush by Ashley Newcomb are the first ones on the list 🙂 thanks for the chance to win such fabulous fabrics !

  160. This winter I will finish a quilt for my bed with matching shams and pillow cases. I’ve made several gift quilts but never one for my husband and me, so this is a big deal to us. I’m making lots Christmas gifts — baby bibs, purses, pillow cases, wall hangings. My New Year’s resolution is to find more hours in a day and days in a week. Wish me luck!

  161. I am up to my eyebrows in projects including a Christmas bargello table runner, a Goodnight Moon floor quilt for my youngest granddaughter, a lap quilt for my middle daughter, a series of 4 large fish quilts to hang in our stairway, a modern wall hanging for my youngest daughter’s NY apartment and cherrywood wall hanging for my oldest daughter. My husband is the best and encourages me to be busy in my quilt room because it makes me so happy.

  162. What a lovely give a way. Well my list for sewing this winter is long. Four pillow covers for the front room , a wall hanging, Curtains for the family room, Curtains for our bedroom, a baby quilt for March, and a tote and a table runner by January and right now for Christmas I am making 5 table runners.
    Whew now lets see if I can keep on track.

  163. I usually work with darker colors, but need to broaden and cheer-up our
    surroundings with a new color pallet and go modern. Thanks to Moda and
    Quilting Daily for giving someone a special treat!!!!! Wish it were me.

    Am about to begin work on a mystery quilt which our guild is sponsoring so that
    will be one of my projects for early winter. Then onto others that have inspired
    me this summer.

  164. I am doing a king size quilt for my daughter and a table runner for my mother-in-law and I have several cuddle quilts to make because our guild gives them away to the Montréal Children Hospital for children that have cancer.

  165. I plan on making my first ever modern quilt. It’s for my 17 year old granddaughter who is “Thoroughly Modern Millie” It will be tiny squares in large square. Wish me luck.

  166. I am making my first ever modern quilt. It’s for my 17 year old granddaughter who is definitely a “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” It is going to be tiny square inside very large square. Wish me luck cindy

  167. I plan to make a wonderful quilted purse. One that has a secret pocket made for ladies necessities so they don’t fall out if the purse does fall. The purse itself will be a pattern which brings winter into a magic all its own.

  169. I have been making quilts and afghans for large family and friends since 1976 when I first learned to quilt from Diane Leone. I have never made one for myself, not even a small wall hanging. This winter I plan on
    making a quilt I saw with white background and colorful 2 1/2″ by
    8 in strips. This fabric looks very colorful to me and it would certainly cheer me up during a cold winter. I use Moda a lot so this would be a wonderful addition to my stash. Jackie Wagner

  170. Christmas crafts sale coming up – table runners, Placemats, micro mitts (pot holders for microwave) and gift card holders….. love to see how little I throw away from a fat quarter!!!!

  171. I have several Christmas items to finish and then finish a snowflake quilt that I started some time ago. Thanks for the chance to win these bright fabrics. Love them

  172. I’m sewing together my first quilt with the quilt as you go method. I need to learn a lot more tricks and tips but have already spent many hours learning from books and the Internet. Moda is a brand often mentioned and I’d love to create a project with this pretty stack!

  173. I have one lap robe almost ready to take to the Veterans’ Home in Manchester, NH. The supplies for two more are already on my shelves. The volunteer coordinator there was delighted when I called to ask if they could use lap robes for their patients and I’m delighted to make them during our dark, cold months.

  174. I am finishing a Christmas wallhanging. I received some very modern looking fabrics last week and I have figured out what I want to sew with them, but, of course, will need some fabric for the negative space. Fun!!!!!!!!!!! I like the creative license you have with modern quilts.

  175. I am making 2 rag quilts and 32 trifold covers for my sister-in-law. I hope to make a couple ruffle blankets and lots of ornaments. I am also helping to hand quilt a tricot quilt with my sister-in-law for my brother to surprise him for Christmas. So excited:)

  176. So many things to make, so little time… I plan to make some purses & table runners. I also want to make some squares using machine embroidery designs that I have been collecting.

  177. Hi Kristine. It is summer in Australia 🙂 I teach Textiles and Design and am always looking for new and creative ideas to inspire and challenge my students. I have already downloaded Modern Patchwork 2014 and want my students to look at the magazine for inspiration and tell me what they would like to do! I would love to win this prize not for myself but to further equip and my students and expand their creative thinking – the colours in the mixed bag fabric collection are ideal for summer. Thanks!

  178. There are 5 quilts (UFOs) in my project box that have been waiting for the cold weather to arrive. Ambitious, yes, but well worth the efforts. Two quilts will be donated to charities my guild supports. One quilt is a repair for a family friend, it has been well loved and needs to continue to give. The final two quilts are finales from wonderful classes I attended this year. Happy Quilting everyone!

  179. I got hooked on quilting after making t-shirt quilts for my children. They always teased me when I saved the shirts for ‘someday I’m going to start quilting’. Well, I’ve made 2 baby quilts for shower gifts and just started a large quilt to keep for myself.

  180. Many years ago, My Dad worked in a foreign country where the men that worked for him got paid very little money. My Dad always tried to make their lives better and helped to provide for their families because the men made so little money. When my Dad’s position finished and he was to come home, the men gave my Dad a gift. It was fabric and his crew had to save for a month to afford it. My Dad passed away last year and I received the fabric he cherished all this time. I am going to use it to make a quilt in memory of my Dad and the men he worked for.

  181. I have a lone star from a Jan rents class to quilt, 2 Christmas quilts to finish for 2014, and a very special double wedding ring to make! Yes, your bundle would be wonderful in that special quilt!

  182. I have been piecing a maple leaf quilt with batiks I was gifted from a fellow quilter in New Zealand. It has emus and native folige in greens and browns. I am making it to send to my youngest sister for Xmas. She was dx’d with uterine cancer the Friday before Mother’s Day. She had surgery this summer. I haven’t seen her since the early 80s. She lives in Michigan. I miss her. Also I have never quilted on my sewing machine, but I have the walking foot and am ready to try. The top only needs the border and backing. Hope I get it finished before the Xmas shipping deadline. The give away fabric is so colorful. Just right for kids quilts.

  184. This winter I am going to work on UFO’s. Some will be donated to a homeless shelter and some will be for family and friends. I belong to a Mystery of the Month quilt group. Recently, our fabric included pearl bracelets. I love them! I started a wall quilt and pillow case which I will finish this winter. I use mostly batiks in my quilts, but I am gearing my new quilts toward modern/contemporary and love the big prints and simplicity of these quilts! We had a shop hop here recently and although I bought batiks, I also purchased quite a bit of the moderns. I have many new quilts and table runners planned for these new, bright fabrics and can’t wait to get to them! I also look forward to getting emails from you because it keeps me excited and I love to see what’s new in modern fabrics and quilting.
    Thank-you. Cyndy McDonald

  185. Great Springtime bundle. After making so many things for others, I plan on making items – placemats, pillows, table runners, etc. – for my home during the coming year.

  187. I will start sewing lessons with my middle granddaughter who turns 6, and can’t wait to follow her 7-year old sister who has just finished her first quilt top.

  188. I’m going to finish hand quilting a scrap star quilt and work on a guild challenge quilt. Probably start more quilts–so many quilts to do and so little time! After 37 years of quilting, I’m still not done!

  190. I’m going to finish hand quilting a scrappy star quilt and work on a few other tops. Probably start a few more. Been quilting for 37 years and still more quilts to be made!

  191. I’m going to do a Christmas quilt for my daughter’s key club silent auction, finish my butterfly hanky quilt, help a friend do 4 tree skirts, do a couple of old cut up quilt throws – tie quilts with flannel back, and perhaps a couple Quilts for Kids, oh, and a Christmas table runner.

  192. I have made and will make pillowcases for ConKerr Camcer. Will be and have made some children’s clothes for the Lord’s House , which is a home for abused families. Quilt of

  193. Hm – projects for winter sewing – I work at a quilt shop part time, and now that the ‘store’ holiday projects are done, it’s time for sewing for me! I have 4 quilt tops to finish for family gifts, and a new custom made shirt for my husband – and in-between drafting a new art quilt for me – creating the images in my mind in fabrics. My whole family are painters, and while I can express my self that way, other family is better than I am, so instead I use fabric and threads. I’m 57, and while I’ve been ‘crafty’ all my life, I only discovered quilting 6 years ago – I have so much time to make up for!

  194. I’m working on ‘reading’ quilts for my 1st grade grandchildren. These quilts will be big enough to cuddle up in when they start reading books on their own.

  195. I’m finishing a lap quilt for a friend for Christmas, then starting on one for my best friend of 45+ years, then maybe a patchwork ornament or two. Love the fabric!

  197. Love the fabrics! I’m going to make some star blocks for next years big project, finish two tops and quilt and bind them, finish one bag and two smaller purses as well as five project bags, and hand quilt two table runners and appilque two more, sew a pillow and a christmas tree cloth.

  198. This winter….well there’s the 2013 block of the month which is going to be a wedding present for my nephew…still need to quilt and bind it, plus a little hand embroidered and piece white and blue wall hanging to quilt and bind – with orange batik piping, then there’s a batik jelly roll calling my name, and oh 3 or 4 or more preemie blankets and probably a lap quilt for comfort quilts. And a bag or two. Yes, this is what I PLAN to quilt and sew this winter. And maybe next spring and summer, too.

  199. I plan to make a quilt in memory of my mom and dad whom has recently passed away from this world. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a bright and cheery assortment of fabric.

  200. Before Christmas I plan on quilting some small Christmas quilts for gifts and after Christmas, finishing some unfinished projects then starting on quilts for some of my family members.

  201. I have just signed up to help a first nations lady in Alberta who had asked for help in making clothes to give for babies and toddlers of low income families. I’ll be knitting and crocheting, but since upon her death, my mother had left me all her clothing (plus sizes), I’ve decided to also sew for them. I am so excited to start into these projects. So, if I do have the blessing of new material, I will certainly make new clothes, baby quilts, mei tai (asian baby carrier), or baby car seat blankets.

  202. I’m going to be making a mystery quilt starting later this month, and also working on two BOM’s in progress. After that, my next project is a baby quilt or two.

  203. Ok, so I’m a little behind…working on a 2012 block a month quilt. Half way there! On the sewing side, embarking on a project to sew for a housebound plus size woman who has an incredible sense of design and can’t tolerate the sorry lack of fashionable clothing at the chain stores. Plan on drafting a sloper for her and then teaching her how to sew for herself. Wish me luck!

  204. Thanks for the give-away opportunity. I’m making my third quilt, a very manly one, random-pieced and including trout appliques for my fishing son. It’s on schedule to be completed by Christmas. If I get brave enough, I’ll FMQ it!

  205. I have two friends who are expecting babies and I will be sewing something for them. I always send something for the children who are already here, too. These fabrics would be a great start for me.

  206. I am so excited to be making a baby quilt for my daughter’s first child due iN January. These fabrics would be great for any baby accessories like a hooter hider or car seat covers! Love those bright colors!

  208. I plan on making gifts for my friends and family for Christmas – tote bags, wallets, table runners, table mats, hot mats etc then my first project for the New Year will be a lap quilt (and coincidentally that gorgeous bundle of fabric would be perfect for this project!) and a purse, beyond that I have not thought. But many hours of happy sewing and quilting. Judy Flanders baskets@bestweb.net

  209. This winter is my time to experiment with more freedom in design and construction with small pieces. Throw out the rulers and play with colors, textures, and layers.

  210. My dad has been asking for a quilt for years made out of Hawaiian shirting fabric that he had purchased while on leave in Hawaii when serving in the Navy during the 1960s. He has kept this fabric beautifully taken care of for years and while he still thinks that it is “hidden,” I had my sister send it to me recently so the quilt that he has wanted for as long as any of us could remember can finally be made for him this year (his 65th Christmas.)

  211. My main project this winter is a series of laptop covers I have promised to make for everyone who the one I made for myself, in additon there are many other small projects I am planning, and a lap size quilt for my grandaughter.

  213. I plan to combine my fine art skills with fabric swatches as patches of color. Highlighting and shading will be achieved with the tonal values of color swatches and thread. This will aid me in achieving the modeling of a form, like a face. The juxtapositioning of contrasting colors will help me to create exciting compositions with my sewing machine. And, the little design repeats in the fabric will make it unique and exciting, which will give the viewer a different perspective as he/she gets closer or further away. I’ve been collecting fabric, but you can give me a good variety from which to choose from. Secondary, I’d like to experiment with low reliefs with fabric, creating abstracts. And tertiary, I’d like to make beautiful baby quilts for family members and others in need.

  214. I plan to quilt the pile of tops I have waiting while simultaneously piecing the jillion tops I WANT to make! I will be happy if I manage to get 2 of anything done!!! Love the fabric bundle….if I win it I’ll give something in queue the boot and get busy on a new top with that fabric!

  215. My kids are hoping that I have the energy and ability to sew a canvas teepee for each of them! Would love some pretty fabric to use as edgings, embellishments and ties on the teepees. 🙂

  216. I always have many projects going on , but after the holidays, I would like to make a “Quilt of Valor” for my father who is 82 and served a 25 year career in the Navy…I an starting to do portrait and art quilts…the possibilities are endless…Happy Quilting!

  217. After spending the next few wks making gifts, I plan to make my grandaughter a quilt and then restore aand finish two 30’s quilts for my brother and sister-in-law. Then, possibly finish a QOV I had to put aside.

  219. Normally I don’t care much for winter, but am looking forward to the snow this year so I can do some snow dying! I have some dye colors that would showcase this beautiful bundle perfectly! Until the snow flies (which won’t be much longer in upstate NY) I’ll be working on some UFO’s, and a new knitting bag to barter with some gorgeous knitted samples for my new quilted jacket I’m planning.

  220. The colors in the Mixed Bag make me drool…in a good way! My last 4 quilts have all been in rather dark fabrics, and it would be great to break out of my rut and do something bright and playful. Would love to see what I could dream up 🙂

  221. I am quilting my oldest daughter a flower quilt, and finishing quilting my other daughter an Americana type quilt, and when time permits, I will embroider some towels and towel scarves for them for Christmas. And crossing my fingers I still have time and sewing them some slippers. Wish me luck~~~

  222. I don’t really have an amazing reason for winning it except that I love to make things and being creative is helping me with Depression that has been like a shroud since adolescence. I would love to make a Happy Quilt for my bed. My current one is getting old and tatty and it would be an awesome thing to look forward to doing in 2014.

  227. That’s easy! I will anxiously await the arrival of these fantastic fabrics that I plan to win and use them for one of the great projects that I am sure to find in the Winter Modern Patchwork issue when it is available. I love the modern fabrics and patterns that are coming out. The trouble is that I also like all of the traditional ones as well.

  228. I’ll be making a bed quilt for my grandson for his 4th birthday. My youngest son has just got engaged so will be making a quilt for them – those fabrics would be perfect for the Confetti Triangle quilt I have just seen which would suit them perfectly. Also have a couple of quilt tops to make into quilts and to finish a crazy patch waistcoat.

Currently I am working with a couple of friends on a landscape triptych that we started several months ago. I’ve been toying with some fabric pieces that have been created in a variety of ways (gelatin prints, painting, prints, etc.) to see what I can come up with . These featured fabrics look fresh and bright – something that might combat winter! I’ve been wanting to work with a 9 patch pattern again.

  259. I have a ton of projects on my ever growing to-do list. My hope is to have a weighted sleeping quilt ready for my nephew’s 4th birthday in early March. If I get it started before Christmas I know I’ll have it completed, even if other creations bump it out of its priority spot.

  260. Grandkids birthday clothes are in the works right now….then several Christmas presents….after Christmas, need to make shirts for myself and my hubby….finally, get to work on one or more of the many quilting projects that exist in my sewing/quilting room!

  262. My Quilters group has a “Comfort Quilt'” project group. Crib, lap & full sized quilts are donated to a variety of local groups, including our counties :women’s crisis home for battered women& their children, Child Protective Services (CPS), SONORA DIALYSIS CENTERS (some of our members have family receiving treatment & other dialysis patients came to our attention, so we donated lap quilts to all patients)& many others in our community who experiences a server health problem via a disease, auto accident etc., hospice patients, plus multiple individual needs. I have volunteered to be a part of this donation project(s) group, so I would use your fabric to continue these “comfort Quilt” traditions.

  264. I would like to make a twin bed sized quilt for my niece who just started her freshman year in college this fall. I helped my brother (his daughter) & my mom raise her after her mom passed away when she was 8 years old & her sister was 6 years old. ( we raised both of them). Anyway, i made each of them baby quilts that they still use to this day. They tell me they feel covered in love & they certainly are! I love them as my daughters & taught them how to sew & knit. They dont have much time for that now but i do. So, i wud like to make them “big-girl” quilts that they can feel loved under while they’re entering young adulthood. Thsts what i wud use the fabric for if i won it. Thnx for reading this. Ksren Hoyt

  266. I am currently working on a nap quilt for a family member, and a pair of SPAM-themed, (yes, SPAM!) place mats for a friend. Waiting in the wings, is a collection of Riley Blake fabrics for a challenge…I am planning on making a yoga mat bag for that. Then, a wedding gift nap quilt, due in June, 2014.

  267. I’ve just started making a bed quilt using Jacquie Gering’s slash and insert method using green and purple fabrics and so far it’s looking good! It would be wonderful to win a new stash of fabrics, so thanks for giving me the opportunity 🙂

  268. I have a few quilt tops to complete, and I have started making quilts for local children in foster care. The latter is very dear to me. Just need to find time to do all that I wish to accomplish.

  269. When eldest grand daughter turned five I started to make three fairy applique quilts for the three grand daughters. Eight years later I have FIVE grand daughters and now five unfinished quilts. Determined to complete them for Christmas and what better way to patchwork around the fairy panels than with this gorgeous bundle of fabrics. Ta for the opportunity to enter the comp! Cheers, Angela

  270. I plan on making quilted window cornices for my kitchen. I am going to paper piece teacups in various patterns/colors to either white or black fabric cornices to give my kitchen a pop of color!

  271. I plan to make new quilts for my sons’ rooms which are now our guest rooms. The rooms are being painted and new carpeting is being put in right now so new quilts are needed. 🙂

  272. We have recently retired to a little villa in Florida, where I am trying to make our new place feel like home. With only two bedrooms, space is precious, and I want to create a warm feel in the office/guest room by designing a quilted coverlet and/or pillows for the trundle bed there. Hopefully that will kindle memories of our former home and make the transition easier.

  273. I plan to practice a new free-motion pattern on a ready-to-go basted top and try out some improvisational piecing…using my stash or that lovely stack of moda fabrics!

  274. I plan on making a quilt for the local pregnancy resource center for their annual holiday sale, and then after that, a wedding quilt for our foreign exchange daughter.

    Spread out, frame baste a quilt and maybe piece in the
    Florida sunshine. New spring wall hangings will be
    First on the list!

  277. Just finished with a weekend working at our quilt show. I am inspired by so many beautiful quilts and am ready to get some ideas from your new issue. I’m sure the fabric in this collection will be perfect for this.
