Be My Neighbor
Welcome to the Moda'hood!
Ask any quilter what they love about “being a quilter” and one of the reasons is likely to be
the sense of community. Quilters of all ages, sizes, backgrounds and experience levels
love to gather to share the experience of being “makers”.
Nowhere is that more apparent than with our excitement over a quilt-along.
Beginning September 7th, 2016 we will provide a series of 16 FREE downloadable "blueprint" block patterns and will run through December 18, 2016. A new block pattern will be posted every Monday. The blueprints will be rendered in gray-scale to allow everyone to color their neighborhood using a wide variety of fabric and color choices. These are very scrappy blocks! Mix your favorite fabric and colors to create your colorful neighborhood. There are 16 blocks in the quilt top. The quilt top measures 68 inches by 84 1/2 inches.
Come here to our website to print out your weekly "blueprint"- (block patterns) to
create "your neighborhood"!
- The finished quilt will measure 68″ x 84 1/2″.
- There are 16 blocks in the quilt top. The rows are separated by horizontal sashing strips.
- These are very scrappy blocks so exact yardage for a set number of fabrics has not been calculated. Just mix your favorite Modalicious fabrics to create your very own quilt-hood!
16 House Blocks: Assorted Prints & Solids
Background and Sashing: 4 -1/2 yards
Borders: 1 – 1/4 yards
Binding: 2/3 yard
Backing: 4 – 3/4 yards
For a quilt using the same background for blocks, sashing and borders, you will need 5 – 3/4 yards total. For scrappy backgrounds, sashing and borders, allow for just a little bit more fabric.
So come on, won’t you be our neighbor?
