I'm a Moda Bake Shop Chef and a giveaway


  
I am excited to share my
message board tutorial at Moda Bake Shop with you.

It has been months since I submitted my project, 
It was August 22 when I received an email saying they loved my idea.
I am so glad the day has finally arrived...
It was like being the new kid in school...a bit intimidating!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If you have been following my blog you may remember
back in April I made my first message boards.
They were the coffee ones and I used
Aunt Martha's Hot Iron Transfers.
#3997 Java Break
purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics.
Back then I said I would do a tutorial...
then I had to keep it a secret
and I couldn't share it with you until now.

I've made some with chalk board cloth and I love them.
You can use regular chalk or a quilting chalk pencil.
I use Roxanne's quilting chalk pencil.  
They are 100% water soluble, no dyes or wax added.
They are available at Crazyquiltgirl Fabric Shop.

  

The redwork designs are from patterns by Bird Brain Designs 
#541 Fresh from the Garden
#478 Redwork Kitchen Towels

Some I've made without chalk cloth.
Below is a message printed on fabric and gifted to me
by my granddaughter when she was learning to print.
I made it into a mini quilt. 
...this one makes my heart sing...

It is a quote from the book

'I Love You All The Time'
by Jessica Elin Hirschman and Jennifer Elin Cole

The message reads...
"Even when
you can't 
see me 
I love you 
all the 
time."

I've also made a few Halloween message boards...
The embroidery patterns are by


The last message board I made was after the 
I wanted to make a Holiday Lane message board
using Jill Finley's pattern.  I ran out of time
but found the perfect fabric in my stash.
..I love this one!
I think this one is my DH's favorite too.

These are just a few of my ideas.
I hope you decide to make a message board
...make one like mine 
or make it unique...make it "your own".
Thanks for visiting, I hope you visit the Moda Bake Shop
and check out my tutorial.

Leave me a comment here and at Moda Bake Shop...
I have 2 Mama Said Sew message boards 
with hangers to giveaway.

The winners are Marlene and Sandra...congratulations!!

hugs and happy stitching
