Monday Minutes with Gael

Volume 1, No. 15

Holding Pattern

Dear Modern Quilting Community,

We are thinking through and preparing ourselves for reopening, but we don’t know what that looks like right now.

Our reopening will be cautious and will happen gradually. We will have reduced hours and comply with all recommended state & federal safety standards. The safety of everyone that comes into our shop is our priority and we do not take this responsibility lightly.

As much as we miss our customers and community, I feel strongly that staying safe and healthy right now is more important than rushing to open our doors.

Thank you for understanding and take care my friends!
-Gael 🐦

Tula Pink HomeMade Challenge!

The Tula Pink HomeMade Challenge is a juried and judged quilt challenge sponsored by FreeSpirit Fabrics and Aurifil.

What Is The Purpose?

The challenge encourages quilters to pay tribute to what drives the quilter/sewist/maker to create with their hands, through the creation of a 60” x 60” quilt featuring 80% of the new Tula Pink HomeMade fabrics and using Aurifil threads. The jury, including Tula Pink, will select 12 quilts that speak to the glory, attitude and beauty that comes from the privilege of saying “Hey, I made that.” The 12 selected quilts will have the chance to be part of the HomeMade Challenge exhibit at the Fall International Quilt Market and Festival in Houston, TX in October 2020, and the opportunity to win over $10,000 in prizes!

How Does It Work?

Quilters can submit up to two pieces to their local US or Canada quilt shop. The quilt shop will then select one entrant/quilter to submit to the jury.

For complete contest rules, click here.

To view the online entry form and submit your entrant/quilter*, click here.
Entry deadline: All completed and signed entry forms and images must be sent to arrive no later than SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 to FreeSpirit Fabrics. (Note that this is a receive-by deadline.)
Tula Pink explains HomeMade designs


I am so thankful for your continued business. This international health crisis is going to be a rough patch for so many small businesses and that worries me for all of us in that boat. On the other hand, it has heartened me to see how local communities have rallied in support of their friends and neighbors. May we all remain united in the face of adversity and come through this healthy and happy.

Take care my friends!
