Help Me Unpack Give-away!!

We're back from lovely Pittsburgh and we are inspired and refreshed.  I'd post all my bad photographs, but you have seen better versions of them in other blogs and on instagram the past couple of days.  Let's leave those photos to those more capable.  Let's do what we do best! Let's have a give-away!

Our luggage also weighs much more than when we started.  Can you help us?  First off - we have a lovely Moda apron and coordinating tote bag…..
 
The tote bag is filled with goodies……
 A group of Lexington quilt patterns….
 Some Moda Candy and a package of Hiroshima milliner needles…...

And this handy-dandy quilt marking template.  Looks confusing? It's not.  It's a set of acrylic templates to mark a fan pattern on your quilt top. These are made by Lisa Bongean at Primitive Gatherings.  You can find these on her website and shops can order them from United Notions. I'm getting a lot of use out of mine.

Oh wait….. There's ANOTHER Moda apron and tote bag…….. and what is inside this one?
It's our Moda Schoolhouse quilt made using a Lexington Layer Cake™!!

All you have to do is comment on this post before midnight Thursday May 22nd and you could win one of these tote bag prizes.

Help me unpack, people!

I love all the new fabric coming out, but then I always do. Your Lexington fabric line I can hardly for it as I have a project just waiting for the fabric. I love all your new patterns which has inspired me to get some of my other projects finished so I can get a new one like the blue and white bunny appliqué chevron quilt I love that one so much.
