There's also have a set of cute custom gift tags you can download and print for Mother’s Day (and more).

If you’re searching for other new designs and colors to add to your stash, be on the lookout for these three Moda collections arriving in June and July. 

Sew & Sew by Chloe's Closet - arriving in June

This vintage beauty contains vintage sewing themes plus sassy florals all in a retro-modern, soda-pop inspired color scheme. (Spoiler Alert: one of the Take The Cake layer cakes for the Great Giveaway is from this collection!)

Haiku from the Moda Fabrics Design Team - arriving in July

Haiku is poetry of the most elemental beauty. This new collection echoes that quiet elegance and grace with designs that are simple yet sophisticated in a rich color palette inspired by traditional Japanese fabrics. 

Sweet Baby Flannels by Abi Hall - arriving in July 

Boucy bunnies, busy storks, and lots of itty bitty baby motifs. These cuddly flannels have the corner on cute and would be perfect for dozens of different nursery projects. The timeless pastels are enlivened with pops of brights.

I am new to Moda so am not familar with all of the designers.  I love the bright, happy, cassic colors and designs!  A time for me when Moda turned a challenge into an opportunity was when I wanted to make a cute, coordinating pillow case in a smaller size; my Moda jelly roll was just the right size and style!

I love Moda because they have fabrics that look vintage - but are brightly colored and often have a modern twist.

I have always loved Moda fabric because it has such vibrant colors and is different. My favorite designer is Sandy Gervais and I really like her panels since I use them in my crafts and flea market displays. Her prints are great for projects in the home. I have always bought Moda first!

I love Moda. When I first started sewing I thought that their fabrics were over-priced. I then started to realize that there is a serious quality difference. Plus, I am in love with Bonnie & Camille as well as Sweetwater fabrc lines. Moda has a great choice for everyone's taste.

Moda "Takes the Cake" with me! Did you ever get a piece of cake with wonderful creamy, "just right, not too sweet" icing? When you bite into the cake, it was so delicious, so ooy, gooy good that the first thought you had was "Is there more?"  That's what Moda fabric is like for me. So good I always want more!  The fabric quality is what drew me to Moda first. Some fabrics just aren't right - too flimsy, too poor in color or design.  I enjoy my fabric and like "biting into the best". Just like when I bite into that perfect cake- I want some more, please!

Moda takes the cake by consistanly offering me quality fabric in beautiful colors. I can always find Moda fabric that blends with my stash. I follow colors more than designers, sorry about that all of you designers. I just know what I like and I can count on Moda.

What "takes the cake" with Moda is some of their designers' line use colors so you can mix and combine fabrics from previous collections with current collections.  Love that and the quality of the fabric.

What takes the cake about Moda fabrics, is that they are easily discernible. Their designs stand out from the others. One touch and you don't even need to look at the label, you just know it's Moda.

Moda takes the cake with their variety (classic, retro, and modern--all inspiring) and quality. There are tons of great designers, like Bonnie and Camille, Kate Spain, Three Sisters, Corey Yoder, Pat Sloan, Deb Strain... I love them all. I love the quality of the fabrics!! Happy Mother's Day, all!

Moda takes the cake with their variety (classic, retro, and modern--all inspiring) and quality. I love Joanna Figueroa and the designer behind Zen Chic to name a couple. Thanks for asking! Happy Mother's Day, all!

Moda's quality takes the cake!!!  I have used several designers but love Kate Spain and Bonnie & Camille designs.  I wish my local quilt shop carried more Moda but to compensate I shop online for them.  Thanks for your great blog and website.  I have used quilte a few of your patterns.

I met Joanna Figueroa when she was a featured quilter at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, CA and since then, I have been enjoying her designs on fabric and patterns.  Anne Sutton is another Moda designer that I have met and I follow her designs and whimsical patterns.  The fabric from Moda is always high quality and I enjoy working with the prints. Thank you for the chance in the giveaway.  I've enjoyed reading your blog.

It's easy to tell Moda fabrics make me so happy when you look at my stash.  Most of it is sorted by Moda designer!  Minick and Simpson, Bonnie and Camille, Fig Tree, Kate Spain, Aneela Hoey, French General, 3 Sisters, and Primitive Gatherings have their individual stacks in my cupboard.  Other favorites are sprinkled throughout my cabinet.  Moda flannels are on the bottom shelf.  Bella Solids are in the center near the top.  A separate cabinet with glass doors hold all my fat quarter bundles, fat eighth bundles, layer cakes, charms, mini charms, honey buns, and jelly rolls.  Precuts are my favorite way to "collect" designers and fabric lines.  I just put 6 more charm packs in there this morning (along with some new Bella Solids in the other cabinet).  I am currently working on 5 BOMs and QALS and am using Moda fabrics exclusively.  #showmetheModa!!

I love the quality of Moda products and, for me, the creme de la creme Moda designer is Brenda Riddle. Her fabric designs are as soft and gentle as a cream sponge and as pretty as a cupcake.

I just Moda Fabrics! No matter what design or project I am doing I know that Moda has just what I need. The quality is tops and I can find something that screams "Take me! Take me!" everytime! I find that using Moda gives me the crispness I need when I need it, and it is great for multiple uses.

Takes the Cake?  Bonnie and Camille--I have loved all their product lines!

Moda fabrics were the first that "jumped" out at me when I first started quilting.  I love the bright colors of Kate Spain and April Rosenthal, the muted colors and stormy gray in Sweetwater's lines, and the modern whimsy of Zen Chic.  Since Moda introduces new designers each season, there's always more to discover and love.  So Moda fabrics "take the cake" in providing fun and exciting fabrics for every quilter!

Moda is my all time fave!!!  I love Jan Patek, Lisa Bongean, Barbara Brackman, Edyta Sitar and Lynne Hagmeier.  I even find myself leaning towards other lines out of my comfort zone.  Reproduction fabrics are my first choice, small prints, large florals, you need some of all of it.  I am really looking forward to Jo Morton's first line with Moda!!  Thanks for all of the great designers and the quality of fabric!!

I've recently gotten back into sewing so don't have personal experience with Moda fabrics. However several of the Facebook groups I've joined (including Sew4Home) rave about your quality, consistency, and how easy it is to pull a project together. And your variety is outstanding. I took a look at the Moda website and I've already got some projects floating through my head using designs from Me & My Sister, Kate Spain, and the Batiks, which are totally amazing!!! And the best part? My local sewing shop carries your fabrics. I'd say a win-win for me!!

I love the feel of Moda fabrics- lovely even for dresses for my little girl!  The range of collections is amazing- repro, vintage, modern, child themed, etc.  Thank you!  crjandsbj(at)gmail(dot)com said:'s picture

I love the feel of Moda fabric and I am so loving the Haiku line.  Love that it is Japanese inspired. Beautiful

Moda, in my opinion, is the best quality fabric out there.  Their quality and design are far better than other fabrics on the market.  Whenever I see a fabric that really catches my eye, I look at the manufacturer.  Of course!  It's Moda!!  I don't look for a specific designer, just look at design and color for my specific project.  I am working on a current project that the design and color could not be more perfect for.

I love the QUALITY of MODA fabrics and the vast variety of pattern choices. There you go...the two best qualities that make me swoon! No matter my whim for a project you always have a fabric line that meets my needs. Pre-cuts are my favorites as it takes much of the work out of the project and I feel confident my squares will be square, which isn't always the case when I cut them myself :) MODA fabric - ABSOLUTELY “Takes the Cake.”

I live in Iowa and each year we have a shop hop with fabric made to fit our state. The MODA Layer Cakes and Charm Packs have always helped me pull this together to meet the challenge of making a memorable keepsake.
