March Madness means Quilting!

March Madness means Quilting!

March is National Quilting Month!  And we're "mad about quilting" so... March Madness at Moda is about quilting.

These are Vanessa Christenson's quilts made with Ombré Basics and Ombré Confetti Metallics.

One of my favorite things about March and National Quilting Month is Amy Ellis' QuiltFest.  For several years, Amy has hosted an online quilt show/quilt fest sharing quilts made by bloggers and others.  With the changes in social media, it's evolved into a month-long community event that takes place on Instagram.

#IGQuiltFest or #igquiltfest

Yesterday - March 1st - was Introductions.  Within a few hours, there were hundreds of women and men of all ages introducing themselves.

This is just a few of them.

While you don't have to be on Instagram to meet everyone and enjoy the goings on, the participation is limited to viewing.  Did I mention there will be daily giveaways from one of the 30 IGQuiltFest Sponsors?

We might be on that list... so if you're on IG, make sure you're following ModaFabrics and #IGquiltfest.

Here is the list of Daily Prompts - Topics.

Since today is Friday, March 2nd... it's Sewing Machine day.

We share what kind of machine we have.  And if you're very brave... how many sewing machines are living with you.

These are a few of mine.

Not.  But I do have more than one.  A couple of old Singer machines and a couple of old Berninas.  My "youngest" Bernina is ten years old, an Activa 245.  It's a lovely little machine and it has more stitches than the rest of my machines combined.  My "newest" machine is a 67-year old Bernina.  And there's the Bernina my parents gave me for Christmas a very, very long time ago.

What about you?

What kind of machine do you have?  And how many?  Does your machine have a history - it belonged to your mother, grandmother, etc.?

So Happy Friday and Happy National Sewing Month!
