Moda All-Stars for the Win!

Hey friends! Have you ever heard of the Moda All-Star quilt book series? It’s an awesome collection of books put together by a team of 50 of Moda’s top designers with a charitable donation as the common goal of each publication. Royalties from every book sold in the series are donated to charities like The Alzheimer’s Association, Feeding American, and Special Olympics to name a few. What a great way to enjoy what we stitchers love most, all while giving back at the same time!

I just so happened to be thumbing through the latest All-Stars release, Snuggle Up when it occurred to me that I have been in every issue of the Moda All-Stars series since they first came out in 2015 – that’s 15 of them! I can’t tell you how proud that makes me feel, knowing that my hard work and dedication to my craft is also helping people who are facing adversity in their lives every day. I’m truly honored to be part of such an awesome cause. So far, Moda All-Stars has made charitable donations to 15 worthy causes that total more than $95,000. Just wow!

Of course we couldn’t have achieved such great things without all of you. Thanks to your continued support by purchasing the Moda All-Star series books, we have been able to accomplish something great! Every purchase of an All-Star series book factors into a charitable donation to a worthy cause. If you would like to learn more about past recipients of these generous donations, click the link below to watch a short video from Martingale Publishing!

Whether you’re a fan of scrappy quilts, pillows and cushions, minis, or simply love pre-cut friendly projects, All-Stars has the book for you! Not to mention, they are beautiful! Perfect bound with thick, glossy pages and beautiful photography, these books will last! They make the perfect addition to your sewing room library – or, if you’re feeling especially generous, they’re also an easy solution for a gift ideas. In fact, my blog manager Heidi plans to give her mother a copy of, Lucky Charm Quilts for Mother’s Day because she recently professed she’s always wanted to make a patchwork quilt, but never had the chance. What a thoughtful idea! I think it’s about time she grabs the bull by the horns, don’t you? No excuses now!

The end of the week is fast approaching. It would be nice if the weather would cooperate for once so we can all get some time outdoors this weekend. If not well, I know just the thing to do to pass the time… STITCH of course! How are your O’ Say Can You Sew Mystery Quilt-Along blocks coming along? Hopefully you’re finished or at least getting there, because Clue 2 releases Monday! Not familiar with this Quilt-Along? Hit the link below to read the blog post where I explain it all!

Alright, I’m off! Have a great weekend everyone, and try to stay out of trouble! LOL I’ll see you all again on Monday when my O’ Say Can You Sew Mystery Clue #2 is hot off the virtual press! You’ll be able to find a link to the printable pattern PDF, along with all the information you need to complete the blocks right here on my blog! If you had fun making the last clue come to life, you’re going to love this block just as much! In the mean time always have fun and do your best to stitch every day… It’s good for you! ~Lisa

  5. Hi Lisa,
    Totally ready for the next clue. I liked making the nine patches so much I kept pulling fabric for more fun. I’ve stopped now and will concentrate on the next step. Thank you for this sew along.

  6. Patiently waiting for Mondays block release. I have a bag each of 2”, 2.5” and 1.5” squares so last one was fun to just reach in the bag and sew. I was hoping I would be able to use them when I thought of cutting them from leftovers.
