Moda Fabric Matcher Contest

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 moda.fabricmatcher.com. 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 moda.fabricmatcher.com/ShowTell/WINAQUILTKIT 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 adctd2qultng@gmail.com 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!

Ambs! Way to go! That is so great! I didn't know that you had even entered a contest (and by the way, you do win things...doesn't Robert's crafts ring a bell?), ha, ha. Anyway, I'm so happy for you. I'm sure you worked hard. I can't click on the picture to make it big though...maybe I'll go to the other link to see them better. Congrats and Yay!

I'm a little sad that Keri beat me to the punch because if we recall, you did win an awesome Robert's contest! Everytime I walk in and see a poster for a contest I giggle inside thinking of you and your "awesome" and "totally in style" prizes! That was a good laugh! But, seriously, congrats on the contest! I will definitely check it out! I hope you know how amazingly talented you are! I love that you are so excited about it because that means you're not arrogant and really weren't expecting anything to come of it! You're the greatest...I want to be just like you one day!:)
