Moda Be My Neighbor Quilt Along!

Moda is hosting a Quilt Along to celebrate our community of quilters ~ Have you heard about it?

As a participating shop, we will provide a series of 16 free downloadable “blueprints” – block patterns each week and will run through December 19, 2016. All new blocks will be posted on our Free Patterns Page of our website every Monday (Blocks 1 - 3 are available there now). 
The blueprints will be rendered in gray-scale to allow everyone to color their neighborhood using a wide variety of fabric and color choices. Setting instructions will be distributed with the final block.

If you think you want to build a neighborhood with us, here’s what you need to know:
General Information:
  • 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 fabrics to create your very own quilt-hood.
Fabric Requirements:
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?
