*the giveaway is now closed*
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. 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. 😉 (Unless you’re Lynne and you’re going to suggest some Afternoon Delight).

okay, so i'll be first at both places! This is a great design Angela, and I love this fabric line.
awesome quilt Angela!
Great quilt and I just left a comment over at the Bakeshop.
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).
I left a comment on your beautiful quilt! Thanks for the opportunity!!
Great design love the fence cute
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)…
Words with Friends is a fun and addicting game.
I left ya a comment over at the bakeshop! It's a very cute pattern Angela.
Lovely design Angela! I really like how the lines extend above the points of the fence. I recommend the quilt calculator website-online not phone, that I saw at Leila's where the orchids grow!http://vrya.net/quilt/flash/QuiltCalc_Loader.html
OK, I posted over at Moda. Also downloaded the pattern. It's very cool!
Left you some <3 over at the bake shop!
Have posted a comment on Moda Bake Shop- great quilt! I used to love the TV show "Picket Fences" too!
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
Robert Kaufman Quilt Calc
Those get used ALL the time on my phone. I'll never have another regular phone, love my smart phone too much!
I have a free app for playing Suduko which I really love!
I left the comment there 😀
Such a lovely quilt…
I would recommend instagram , an application for photo taking and sharing 😀
Love your quilt 😀
Left a comment there ;D
I left a comment there! Very clever design!!
I don't have a 'Fancy Dancy' phone either but if I had I'd love to have the Cozi Calendar 😀
Left you a comment- such a cute quilt, btw.
Great quilt Angela!
I left a comment at MBS!
I know nothing about phone apps!! but I can heartily recommend making(and drinking) damson gin!!
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!
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.
Great Quilt! Just left a comment at Moda too!
As for phone apps…..I love Genius Scan. It takes a picture (and not in a jpg file, instead of scanning it) and you can email it!
It looks amazing and perfect fabric too.
Love your picket fence quilt and your tutorial at the Bake Shop. Left a comment there.
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.

I don't have a smart phone but if they don't have apps for fabric or quilts or even the fat quarter shop they should! Love the quilt!
Love the new tutorial and can't wait to try it out. I left a comment over and thanks for a chance to win some fabric from this adorable line.
I love the new tutorial! I left a comment in the bakeshop. Great design!
As for apps…do you have Words with Friends and Hanging With Friends? Those get the most use on my phone!
I've just come from MBS – Great tutorial. I just love the picket fence detailing. It would make a great moving to a new home gift too!
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.
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!)
