Amazing Creations Contest!

Hello Dear Friends!
Hope that you are all having a wonderful

Today, I am presenting a contest within a contest to you!

Please let me explain....

Several months ago, I was visiting one of my favorite
Quilt Shops,
"In Stitches" in Rushville, Indiana.
At the end of a presentation that I was giving,
I passed out a bag of scraps (generously provided
by our friends at Moda!) to everyone attending.

A challenge was presented to the
recipients to see what they could
create with the scraps within their bag.

The results were amazing!!!
I've posted the incredible projects below and would
love for you to share your amazement with
the talented ladies who have created them.
Leave a comment
by noon on Sunday, August 18th,
and I will randomly  choose 3 winners
to receive their  own box of colorful scraps!

We are also having these beautiful projects
judged by Debbi Duckworth from Moda to choose a winner.
She is a wonderfully talented and creative part of the
Moda team.
(I'm glad that I am not choosing!)

I'm sure you will be impressed with the
creative talents that were shared!

Here are the wonderful ladies (and dear friends)
from the "In Stitches" Quilt Shop
group and their projects:
