Moda Fabric Matcher Contest

Monday, November 10, 2008

OK. I found out about this fun contest on my link to the awesome website for Fig Tree Quilts. It was a quilt design contest on They do a new contest every month. Joanna Figeroa (who is the designer/owner of Fig Tree Quilts) was one of the judges for the October Contest. The rules were to use any of Moda's patterns along with any Fig Tree fabrics to design a quilt. So, I designed four. Moda said they were going to announce the winner during the first week of November. So I checked their website every day last week, wondering if I won. Assuming I didn't. But hoping I did. And - I did! One of the quilts I designed - won! I can't believe it!!! Sorry, but I just found out about 20 minutes ago, so I'm still really excited. You can go to to check out all of the entries. If you're curious about my other designs then you can go to the public stash and click on to see my other 3, then click on "my projects." I couldn't believe it when I saw my quilt on their website, but sure enough, I got an email from someone at Moda who said:
Joanna with Fig Tree has selected you to be our Grand Prize winner."My hands down #1 favorite: adctd2qulting2 [the pink circles].... I want to make this one!" - Joanna Figeroa

Needless to say, I am so excited. I get a bundle of fat quarters and a pack of patterns all designed by Fig Tree Quilts. Yay! Free quilting supplies! I never win anything. I can't believe it! Oh yeah, a new contest has started for November with a Christmas theme. The quilt design program is really fun to play around with, but can be a little addicting. You should try it!
