Picket Fences – A New Quilt for Moda Bakeshop!

*the giveaway is now closed*

Picket Fences

I’m so excited to share my second Moda Bakeshop quilt! It’s appropriately (if not obviously) titled Picket Fences and I was thrilled to work with the fabric of one of my favorite set of designers, Sweetwater. Hometown is just fun and I loved searching through all of the names to find cities that are special to me.

This particular quilt is being donated to a local fundraiser for a women’s center here in South Bend. I’m thrilled that it will be shared by someone who will both love it and who is willing to donate to charity. What a win-win for this sweet quilt.

And I’m also excited to have a lovely giveaway hosted by The Fat Quarter Shop! They are generously giving one reader a petite fat quarter set of Hometown. What a fantastic way to get a taste of this line.

To enter to win this petite fat quarter bundle, I’d love if you went over to Moda Bakeshop and left me a comment on my quilt there. Β Then come back here and leave me a comment that you left a comment there.

For those of who really want extra chances, I’d love any phone apps that you all can recommend. As you may have gathered from my previous post, I’m quite new to the smartphone world. I would love to know what I’m missing. So if you have a suggestion for one, that gives you an extra entry. Please leave it as a separate comment.

I know that not everyone has a fancy-dancy phone. So in lieu of an app recommendation, please feel free to share any other recommendations you have! lol I’ll let you all decide what that might be about. But let’s keep it clean. πŸ˜‰ (Unless you’re Lynne and you’re going to suggest some Afternoon Delight).

  1. I don't have a fancy phone but I thought there might be an app for Kona colors. Hmmmm, I know there is one for Bazzill scrapbook papers, maybe I was just dreaming of the Kona color chart app. Well THEY should have that one (as well as Moda Bella colors).

  2. I don't have a smart phone…LOL…but my Sister In Law loves Facetime..and I have used it on my ipad to chat with her face to face (she lives 1900+ miles away)…

  3. As for phone apps my faves are:
    Angry Birds (all 3 versions)
    Alchemy–you mix elements to create new ones, over 370 from just Earth, Air, Water & Fire
    Ant Smashers–great kid game
    Jo-Ann–you can save coupons to your wallet and use them over and over and over and over before they expire
    Tweet Deck
    Google Reader
    Robert Kaufman Quilt Calc
    Barcode Scanner
    Zombie Booth

    Those get used ALL the time on my phone. I'll never have another regular phone, love my smart phone too much!

  4. I left a comment over there, but I also want to tell you here how amazing this design is. I love how innovative you are with your quilts that you come up with, both pieced like these and also the mini quilts that you have dreamed up. (I also mentioned on the MBS post that I had been thinking up a picket fence block, but you definately outdid me with an entire quilt.) Keep up the great designs!

  5. As far as apps go, I'm finding that I don't really care for most of them. The one I use the most is for eBay, which does make it easier to get in a last minute bid. I do also use VCAST Song ID (Verizon only, I would guess), to help with naming songs that play on the radio and I don't know who sings them. The RSS feed option that came with my phone doesn't work most of the time, so I did download the Google Reader app, but sometimes it won't show posts as they are on the blogs. I have only downloaded free apps, so I'm sure there are some good ones you pay for. I just don't have the money in my budget.

  6. I am totally out of the loop on smartphones and apps. But here is a recommendation for a website I love…retailmenot.com They have coupons & codes for so many places to shop. I thought everyone knew about this site but lately I've mentioned it to a couple people who said they never heard of it.

  7. What a perfect combination – picket fences and Hometown. I love it!

    I have an app i love on my iPad that you could probably get for your phone. It's called calorie counter and allows me to record everything I eat and look up the nutritional value of pretty much any food, including restaurant meals.

  8. Just left a comment over on the tutorial. I love the quilt design!
    My suggestion is to have a Crunchy bar with your next cup of coffee or tea. Yummo! (I have no idea about smart phones!)
