Moda Spell it With Fabric blog hop sponsored by the letter V

Hello hello! Welcome to my turn to the spell it with fabric blog hop! I'm Very excited to have you! I'm your host Vanessa Christenson of V and Co.
This post is brought to you by the letter V ;) naturally.

download the letter V here
Of course V is an awesome letter for me to have for all obVious reasons.
I made my "Supa-Star V quilt" to show off my "V" block at last fall market. It's based off of my Lucky Star quilt pattern somehow making it personalized with a big letter V has got it perks, as no one dares to use my quilt so it's always readily available for me when I need it...and this winter, oh man haVe I needed it. Safe to say I use it eVery day.

So aside from having the perfect letter block assigned to me for obVious reasons...I get to answer a few fun questions using the letter V as well...totally sounds fun right?
Oh yeah? Sounds fun till you actually have to do it. I mean HELLO, how many times do you use a descriptiVe word starting with a letter V? NOT OFTEN. But we'll give it a go.

Here are my questions:
What's your letter: V(easy enough)
What is something you don't like: Vomiting (seriously who does? If you do, I don't think we can be friends anymore)
What's something you like: uuuuuhhhhh....NOT Vomiting? No wait...VACATIONS! I like Vacations, but not just any vacations I like warm Vacations. So I guess I like summer Vacation. (Ha this might be easier than I thought!)

 I like quilting because: When I'm quilting I'm in a happy Vortex (oh now I'm just totally showing off)

An object or tool you like to use: hmmmm my Color Me Happy Variegated thread  (actually all my thread but hey had to highlight the V!) that goes awesome with my:
gradient ombre fabric

Last but not least
favorite motto (with the word Virtue in it):
And I truly am grateful for so many things. My family being of course my biggest blessing I'm grateful for, but also just every day that I get to wake up, healthy, happy, and alive. Honestly, everyday I give thanks for what I call my life.

Ahem speaking of blessings one of them also known as my third noisemaker is having a birthday today.
He is obsessed with turtles so of course a little turtle cake was in order. We're celebrating all things him today and I'll get to his own blog post in a couple of days.  :) after the blog hop festivities die down.

Well then, that was WAY easier than I thought it would be to use V in all my answers!  I feel like a Vwinner I mean Winner...

So do you want to feel like a Vwinner too?

Of course part of this is to celebrate my upcoming new line Color Me I'm offering a great sale
from now till Saturday the whole V and Co store is 25% off when you enter MODASPELL when you check out.
 that includes my Color Me Happy Large Spool threads and the Color Me Happy small box of threads 
(ALL Thread is now BACK ORDERED (that sold out quick!) but I'll grant the sale price if you don't mind a little bit of a wait)...if you order something else it will ship with your thread when it comes in.
to the point quilt pattern
that includes all patterns, new AND old...
that's kind of a big deal! :) And it's all to say thank you for your support. Honestly, thank you. :)

And now for the giveaway part:
Here's what I am giving away to one lucky Vwinner:

1 layer cake and a jellyroll of color me happy, one lucky star pattern to use your jelly roll on, and a new slice cut (which next week I'll be doing a free "how to" on making the banner with the slice cut)

Oh my....would love to have it to look at on my shelf in my sewing room but would have to get busy with a quilt I have been promising my grand daughter. I love all you ladies sewing rooms full of wonderful fabric...I would love a fabric shop in my home:) You ladies are amazing.
Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

I would make a quilt using the winning pattern - Lucky Star! Thanks for the chance to win:)

Lena Yakim said...

Thank you for giveaway! Wish to win :):):) i'd make a quilt and pillow cases for my daughter, she really needs new quilt. Great fabrics!

Emily C said...

I love your star quilt. That V star pops so nicely.
I am not sure what I would make right now. I have 3 quilts I am finishing and I am trying not to start a 5th (woops, you didn't hear that). So, the fabric would get petted and admired and then added to my stash.

Shelley Bluejay Pierce said...

No question at all about what I would make with the fabric! I need a quilt for cold nights sleeping in our vintage trailer! "A-Camper-quilting-I-will-go!" wahela9(at)

Amy said...

I would make a couple of lap quilts- one for me, one for a friend. Thanks for the chance to win.

I would make a quilt for my grandson! I love the colors!

Crisanne D. said...

So, I have the tiniest little vintage camper trailer that I have slowly been fixing up. I've scrubbed, recovered bench seats, mattresses, and even replaced an ugly hunting photo with an adorable family name print. Next on my list, a quilt to cover the full mattress, and a banner to hang over the table! Seriously, could this fabric go to a better use?!!

Denise said...

Well, first let me say how pretty the fabric and pattern are and I would make a quilt for one of my grandaughters. And then I want to commend you for how you are handling this polar vortex thing for being a transplanted Iowan. This is a nasty year even for us! And I have lived in northern Iowa all my almost 60 years! Thanks so much for you fun and good humor.

Jenny said...

This is just the thing I need to get a new project started! A fun quilt!

I would make the lucky star quilt. And then hide out underneath it until winter is over. Or, if winter is over when I'm finished making, I will use it as a picnic blanket (But not with my little noisemakers because they would spill on it).

Thank you for the chance to win!

elizabeth said...
