Moda Mini Charm Challenge

Thanks to the generosity of our January speaker, Lissa Alexander, we have an exciting guild challenge!

During our January meeting, Lissa explained that before each market release, she often pulls out charm packs of each line and in the office they look through each print, guess which line fabrics are from, and see trends in colors and designs. After the most recent market, Carrie Nelson took the charms and made this quilt with fabrics from all the lines mixed and mingled. Isn't this a great idea?

It can be so easy for us to get stuck in a rut with only this fabric goes with other fabrics that the designer made...or the exact same colors. This looks super scrappy and just cute!
Then came a suprise! Cute paper bags were passed out to each member. Each bag contained 4 charm packs and 3 spools of aurifil thread. Wow! What a treat!

Here's the challenge Lissa issued:

Mix and mingle fabric from all four charm packs to make something. You must add 1 yard of grunge or a solid (of course, you can add more!). 

Bring your completed projects to the April meeting! We can't wait to see what you make with this challenge.

Some of our members have already started! Be sure to share what you're making for the challenge. Tag your pictures on instagram with the guild hashtag #mckmqg and share with moda: #ShowMeTheModa

Huge thanks to ModaLissa and Aurifil thread for this challenge.
