New MBS Project & Another Giveaway

I recently learned about Texture Magic from my friend Nedra who works for Superior Threads so, I thought I would use it in my newest Moda Bake Shop project. Check out my project here and leave me some comment love. I hope you like it.

I also had this great idea to help in spreading the news about a NEW and WONDERFUL product called Texture Magic by Superior Threads. So, I'm going to enlist your help and as an added bonus I'm going to give away a few things you'll see below. Read on . . .

Texture Magic was introduced at the Spring Market and is making it's way into your local quilt shops. If you haven't seen their products yet, you can have your local quilt shop contact Superior Threads by phone at 435.652.1867 or 800.499.1777 or link to their website here. All of their products are wonderful and I especially love their Titanium Needles. I've also heard that their Masterpiece Thread by Alex Anderson a National Quilter of Simply Quilts is wonderful and I'm really excited to use it. Go check out their products.


Here are the Prizes I'm Offering:

First, I'm giving away the actual sample I just made for the Moda Bake Shop.
My Patriotic Star Pillow is pictured below.
(the 14" pillow insert will not be included)


I'm also giving away Two packages of Texture Magic generously donated by Superior Threads for two winners to use in any Quilting, Sewing, and Home Decorating projects. It's easy to use and creates beautiful textures to your projects. You will absolutely love this product.



The Last prize will be two packages of Titanium Needles for one winner.


Now for the RULES:


This worked well for me last time so I'm going to do it again with a few modifications. For those that don't have a clue what I'm talking about I will explain.
