Tiaras and threads...
It's a Beauty of a
Pageant Contest and it starts today!
The designers-contestants have finished strutting their stuff and now it's ready for you to have some fun. (Though I hope you've enjoyed the hop and had some fun already.)
Here's what you need to know - and do.
Get a copy of the book - buy it, win it, borrow it... whatever works. Just so long as you have a copy of Moda All-Stars - All In A Row in your possession.
Get some fabric - from your stash, from your favorite quilt shop, from a friend! Just gather up a nice little stack of fabric you love. (Moda, of course.)
Make a row - any one will do! And for the time being, you only need one.
Take a picture of your row and post it-e-mail it so you can be entered in the Beauty of a Contest contest!
There are two ways to do that -
- Join the Facebook group - All In a Row Quilt Along. Yes, you must be on Facebook to join the group. Post a picture of your row using the hashtag - #allinarowquiltalong - and BAM! - you're entered.
- Send a JPEG - a good-sized, low res image will do - to firstname.lastname@example.org and BAM! - you're entered.
If you're a super-talented over-achiever and you make seventeen rows and post/send seventeen pictures - WOW! You're entered seventeen times.
On March 15th, Miss All-In-A-Row and her court will be announced.
Miss All-In-A-Row will be the envy of all her quilty friends from April through December 2016 as she will receive a Fat Quarter pack from Moda and 2 new-release books from Martingale. She'll be a Stitching Stunner!
No, Miss All-In-A-Row does not get this quilt. She can make it herself - that's her talent!
The First Runner Up - 2nd prize - will receive a Moda Fat Eighth pack for six months (April through August 2016) and one new-release Martingale book for four months. (Unless for some reason, Miss All-In-A-Row can't fulfill her obligations, of course.) (Four play will not be tolerated.)
The Second Runner Up - 3rd prize - four months of Moda Layer Cakes and new-release books.
Third Runner Up - two months of Moda Layer Cakes and two new-release books, and finally, the Fourth Runner Up will get a Layer Cake and a new-release book.
Each week of the pageant - contest - there will be additional prizes.
- Miss Congeniality - 2 Moda charm packs and a book
- Talent Winner - 2 books and 2 Mini Moda Charms
- Stash Accumulation Award - 1 Moda Mini Charm, 1 Moda Layer Cake and 3 books
- Social Media Butterfly Award - you're going to win my House Row from the book
I'm wondering why there isn't a Miss Hashtag? A prize for the entry with the most hashtags attached - #ShowMeTheModa #ModaFabrics #AllInARowQuiltalong #MartingaleRocks #ModaDesignersAreTheBomb #ModaRocks #ILoveMakingItModa and so on. (And no, borrowing these will not get you any special prizes from yours truly.)
Are you excited? Are you ready to start sewing rows - rowing?
Me too! #LetsGetRowing!
