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 email@example.com 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!
