Winter Frost - FAQ
Winter Frost - FAQ
2020 is our 4th annual COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS! This is a fun way to spend the season preparing for the holiday, making just a block each day. You can also save the patterns and come back to them later. Let's jump right in with the questions!
Q: How do I sign up for the Countdown to Christmas?
A: Just follow along here on the blog! The blocks will be posted every day, starting on December 1. We will also post a photo of the block on our social media accounts so if you follow us there look for those posts as a reminder to check out the block of the day.
Q: What fabrics can I use?
A: Please use what you love best! This is a quilt for you so make it with fabrics you love. We have chosen a set of wintry blues and whites from some of our Moda Basics lines like Grunge and Spotted. Check out your favorite quilt shop for a range of wintry blues from Grunge, Spotted, and Bella Solids and use our prints as a guide. You can find them all listed here.
Q: How much fabric do I need?
A: We've provided some guidance here for the number of fat quarters and some yardage. However, this is just guidance! We will provide 3 setting options for the blocks and each setting will have its own fabric requirements. I often find that I want to have one accent fabric - a particular print or value - that I reuse throughout the blocks to balance the quilt. If you also like to have an accent fabric, we recommend having at least 1 yard.
Q: Where can I share my blocks as I make them and chat with others about the Quilt-Along?
A: Please join us on our Moda Bake Shop Bakers Facebook group. Nearly 800 of you have joined since we announced the quilt-along two weeks ago and we are so happy to have you! This is the spot for chatting about all things Moda Bake Shop. If you share your photos on social media, use the hashtags #mbscountdown2020 #winterfrostcountdown so we can see them.
Q: What are the dates of the Countdown to Christmas 2020?
A: The first two settings will be posted on November 23 and 30 and the third bonus setting will be shared on December 28. We will have blocks posted daily from December 1 to 25 and a bonus block on December 26.
Hopefully we've answered all of your questions, but if not - comment below. We are looking forward to sewing along with you!
