BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE GOOD FOLKS AT MODA FABRICS / UNITED NOTIONS

Hello neighbors (waving at you),

Posting this from sunny Commerce, Texas this weekend (Not too far from Moda Fabrics headquarters).  I am so fortunate to be able to travel here to attend our eldest daughter's commencement ceremony as she graduates from Texas A & M University.  Congratulations Katie!  A job well done and now that your book work and studying are finished.... in addition to the dynamic career advancemnet that awaits you, you'll  now have more time to get back to quilting.  Hurray- Hurrah!


And now let's get to what you came visiting here for, Block 16!

What an enjoyable group of participants we have had for the Be My Neighbor Quilt-A-Long.  It really does feel like a neighborhood community of quilters.  Thank you so much to everyone who has been a part of it. Today is the release of your final pattern #16; The Meeting House.  You will find the download below - and if you want to set your blocks together like the folks at Moda did, once again we have the setting pattern here on this blog post for you to download.

If you have just discovered this quilt along and need ALL 16 patterns, below is a button for you to get the printable downloads for every block in this quilt(we would love to see pictures of your blocks, whenever you get them stitched up).
