Voting has Started for the Moda Piece & Comfort Challenge Quilts!

This is "Libberty Logs", the winner from our shop for the Moda Piece & Comfort Challenge pieced and quilted by Maggie Vargas!   This beauty is currently hanging in the shop, so stop by soon to check it out in person :)

The voting on Moda's blog for Viewer’s Choice starts today – Thursday, April 30th – and continues until Midnight on Wednesday, May 6th.  Please use This Link to hop over there and cast a vote for Maggie's quilt (You vote using the list on the right hand side of the Moda Blog ~ they're listed alphabetical by shop, so look for Spring Water Designs)

Here are a few close ups of the quilting that Maggie did.  She used her Avante with Pro-Stitcher that she purchased from Spring Water Designs this past fall.  Maggie was one of our Renters, until she decided to purchase one of our shop Demo machines, now she can quilt all she wants/whenever she wants in her own home.  I love to see all the quilts that are getting finished on machines that we've sent out into the world :) 

 Maggie used a digital allover panto design that she found with stars and flags.  It's a really cool design to use on this quilt. 

Maggie's quilt won a $50.00 Gift Card to Spring Water Designs as the winner from our shop, and now she's included as one of almost 200 entries nationwide for Moda's online Viewers Choice.  Vote for her, and tell all your friends to vote too! You can see all of the entries on the Moda Blog, and click on the photo of Maggie's quilt there to see a write up of Maggie's inspiration.  Maggie is a veteran herself, so this cause was near and dear to her heart.  She makes alot of charity quilts, and I think she plans to donate this one too. 

I'd like to say Thank You to Maggie for her service to our country, and on the behalf of all of us...Good Luck in the Moda Piece & Comfort Challenge!

PS ~ These beautiful patriotic fabrics have been really popular ~ just in case you get inspired when viewing all the wonderful entries...we still have some of the fabrics, and kits for the Flag Quilt still in Stock.  Proceeds from the fabric sales are donated by Moda to USA!

Enjoy the day!
