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!
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!).
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.
@modalissa presented at the most recent #mckmqg meeting and gave us the most generous goody bag with 4 mini charm bundles from @modafabrics and some thread from @aurifilthread! She then issued a challenge to add 1(+) yds of #modagrunge or #bellasolids and make something by April. I'm off to a start! Of course I found the pattern on the #modabakeshop . #showmethemoda #modafabrics
