One Village - Together

One Village - Together

Written by:

Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.

Helen Keller knew about challenges, and how to overcome them.  With the uncertainty that is now part of our daily lives, we are coming together to draw strength from each other, and to find comfort in knowing we are not alone.  

RQC 701 Village

Made in 2015, this Village quilt has been around the world.  Literally.  It has been to shops and distributors in Europe and Australia.  

Now we're making this quilt and pattern available as a free PDF download to reach out and connect with our community - with each other.  

Moda Village 

In the weeks since we first shared this pattern with our shops, we have loved seeing all the Villages on social media.

This Village quilt is by Sandy Hartman and it's made with Lella Boutique's Nest collection.  (Sandy is @sandyleehart on Instagram.)

How beautiful is this super-scrappy Village quilt?  The fussy-cut letters in some of the doors and the print background are perfect.  This quilt is by Karolina - @wallflowerquilts on IG.

Moda Village - The Quilted Moose

One of my favorite Village quilts is by Debbie Roberts of The Quilted Moose.  This was made with Zen Chic's White Christmas collection.  

We particularly love the trees.

When Debbie made this quilt, she shared her method for making the trees.  If you'd like to add them to your quilt - Midnight Village Trees.

In sharing Village, we're asking that you make a block and post a picture of it on Instagram with the hashtag - #modavillage

A selfie.  You with your block.  

We know... it's been weeks since you've had a haircut or been to the salon.  You don't need to dress up - unless you want to.  (We also won't ask if you're wearing pants.)  

To help entice you, we've got a giveaway - one each for Facebook and Instagram.  Post your selfie by Midnight on Friday, May 1, CST.

What's the prize?  A dozen charm packs and some Moda goodies.  (Trust me on this, it'll be good.)

So let's sew - Moda Village.

Have a good weekend and stay safe.
