Solids Rock giveaway

When I got back into sewing after my kids were born, Moda didn’t excite me.  I feel badly for saying this….but all their fabrics seemed like “old lady” quilt fabric.  Now, however, I feel very differently.  I LOVE love love Moda. I believe it’s a combination of my expanding fabric palette and the fact that they have brought really really great designers on board in the last several years.

Wonderful Color So when I knew it was time to add some solids to my inventory, I looked a few companies but quickly narrowed it down to Moda’s Bella Solids or at Robert Kaufman’s Kona Solids. And for me, Bella won. They just seemed softer and higher quality from the samples I compared. Not as stiff and loose. I didn’t conduct super official studies, but I wanted to send out a product that I felt confident in…and Bella won. Plus, I really appreciate that Moda sells to independent shops rather than the large chain stores.

I’d like to pass some onto you to see what you think! So I’m giving away 2 (yep!) Fat Quarter Sets of all the solid colors I currently have in stock! (That is 27 total but just fyi, 2 are from Michael Miller. Their Jet Black and Jet Brown are must have in your stash!) And let’s not end there! Oh no!

Easy Quilt Projects

To go along with all the wonderful solid colors, I have 2 copies of this great book! Easy Pieces Quilts is chock full of projects, and not just quilt projects! There are bags, crayon rolls, placemats, skirts, scarfs and more. I’m really annoyed with myself for not ordering 3 copies so I could keep one for myself! 🙂

So you can enter 2 ways.
(and therefore 2 times)

#1.  Leave a comment here.

#2. Hop onto Facebook and “Like” my page.
(fyi, you are no longer Fans. You just like me. Much less commitment than becoming an official fan, does that make you feel better?!?!? 😉 )

I’ll pick one winner from the blog comments and one winner from my Facbook page.  But not until next week.  I’ll be gone this weekend….

Over the next several days, I’ll be highlighting many of the great Moda fabrics. (And by golly, I better have that quilt ready to bind before I leave town on Friday!) But you don’t have to wait on me. All Moda fabrics are on sale right now. 🙂

And can I just say that I love you guys! I don’t tell you that often enough.  I really appreciate that you support my independent shop!

PS.  Of course, international entries are always welcomed!

    Thanks for the info and giveaway. I have only used Kona solids so opening a door into Moda solids would make me more confident to order online.

  17. 18 Nicole April 29, 2010 at 5:15 am

    I love Moda as well…but I don’t think I have ever sewn with the Bella solids! Thanks for sharing and letting us all play along – have a lovely weekend!!

  19. 20 Kaye Prince April 29, 2010 at 5:41 am

    Woohoo! I haven’t tried the Bella solids (I’ve used Kona a few times and a lot of white from my local fabric shop) – I’d definitely love to give these a try and winning that much fabric to try at once would make me very happy!

  20. 21 Kelly Irene April 29, 2010 at 6:03 am

    YAY! Thanks for holding such a great giveaway! I am definitely in 🙂 I am finally making a quilt for my daughter’s first birthday (and my first quilt!) so I will be needing some solids. Of course there is a lot I could do with 27 FQ solids 😉 Thanks again for the chance to win!

  39. 40 Jennifer April 29, 2010 at 8:25 am

    Oh, wow! I’ve been trying to build up my stash of solid fabrics for a few years now, and this giveaway would be so great! I tend to buy a lot of prints – anything that catches my eye. For some reason it seemed like I was getting more bang for my buck when I bought patterned over solid fabrics. Well, I have revised my thinking and am now on the prowl for great solids. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Oh, and I “like” your FB page :).

  40. 41 Molly April 29, 2010 at 8:35 am

    start! Thanks for a chance

  53. 54 adnohr April 29, 2010 at 12:01 pm

  63. 64 Susan April 29, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    This is a GREAT giveaway! Solids never interested me much till I found a quilt I wanted to make that had quite a bit of solids in it . . . so now this would be a wonderful thing to win! And let me just say that I love your shop – you have good prices, good selection, and you ship to Canada without charging an arm and a leg – thank you for that. And you accept PayPal, which helps me fund my own sewing and quilting mania without bugging my hubby for money all the time – I just use the money I get from my own Etsy shop! I’ll stop now and go “like” you on FB! 😉

  64. 65 Shannon April 29, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    All I can say is thank you!

  72. 73 Margaret Parks April 29, 2010 at 5:09 pm

    My comment is on your comment re: not liking MODA fabric when you got back into quilting. I had some biased views (pun intended) as well but now like you and so many others I think Moda fabrics and designers are my favorites. Bella solids I am not familiar with, but would love to try them.
    Thanks for a great site, I’m a fan.

  73. 74 Jenna April 29, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    WAHOO!!! sounds like a fun time sorrounded by all the color 🙂

    I’m already a FB fan. Thanks for explaining why you like them! I really like solids but we don’t have a great local selection and I’ve only tried the Kona. I have a hard time matching fabrics and I would love to make a quilt or tote bag just out of solids!

  88. 89 Densews April 30, 2010 at 11:29 am

    Love Moda fabric. These Bella solids look so good and handy to have around. Thanks for the chance to enter giveaway.

  105. 106 michelle lange May 1, 2010 at 7:25 pm

  124. 125 Susan G May 4, 2010 at 11:15 am

    Great giveaway – I have very few solids in my little fabric collection that I’m always running to the store to get just a little of the perfect color. But I think a solid can add so much to the beautiful collections in your store.

    i am just starting to learn/teach myself to sew, therefore i don’t have much/any fabric;{ i had no idea where to start, so i went to deseret industries{my lucky day} and found some fabric,{it’s not the best, but it is fabric} and haven’t even a clue what to do with it. the fabric and book would help me get started and not be so…. afraid;}
    thank you for the opprotunity!
