We loved all your designs, unfortunately someone has to be SLICED and this week your project didn't make the cut. You will be sent an awesome prize package from our wonderful sponsors and your projects from the audition round and week 1 will be published on the Moda Bake Shop. Find out more about Rebecca...

I'm Rebecca Roach & I live in Austin, TX. If you don't count the quilted wall hanging class my auntie forced me to take in 3rd grade, then I've been a quilter since 2004. I primarily make applique quilts for shows, but two years ago, I decided to try writing patterns & started Frybread Quilts & Cuterie. You also might have seen some of my work published in Quilting Arts Magazine & 101 Patchwork Projects. When I'm not quilting or working at my 8 to 5, I'm chilling at home with my Steven & our cat Tonka. Start following Rebecca on her blog...

Be sure to check for her wonderful tutorials to be published in the following week.
