We LOVE a good sew-along. And we LOVE a good pattern – especially one that is versatile enough to work with Layer Cakes, Charm Packs or Mini Charms. More importantly, we’d LOVE for you to join us! -Carrie Nelson @ModaFabrics
What is the Moda Love Sew Along? A social media sew-along using the Moda Love Pattern.
When is it? January 24 is Moda’s official starting date for the sewing and sew-along. There will be introductory posts on Instagram, Facebook and Moda’s Cutting Table Blog on January 17th.
Where can you join in the sew along? . At your local participating shop (come see us at Rocking Chair Quilts if you can get here). Don’t have a #modaloveshop near you? Join in online: search the hashtag #modalovequilt. on your social media. And on Moda’s social media.
Why a Sew Along? Because sew-alongs are one of the best ways to make sewing-creating fun. Whether you like to create solo or with others.
Sew-alongs also provide terrific opportunities for a visit to your local quilt shop for a bit of in-shop-sewcializing
make your own sew along by meeting up with like minded quilters to create quilts and build the bonds of friendship.
Why the Moda Love Quilt Sew Along? Because you can start with precuts, the Moda love quilt is fun and you will be done pretty quickly . Easy to sew together too - this pattern can be a great teaching quilt for those starting their journey through the quilting nation.
Have a peek at the pattern:
We would LOVE to see what you will stitch together with the Love Quilt pattern! Whereever you share your love quilt projects, be sure and use the hashtag – #modalovequilt.
