Sewing a Village
***Please note: The Sewing a Village sew along took place in 2018. I am leaving the downloads and videos so please feel free to use them. We will continue to see the patterns and fussy cut rulers in stock. Please note the pattern is only available in printed form - no PDFs are available.
It takes a village to sew a quilt! Or in this case, a village of cheerleaders and the support of quilty friends to sew a village of 132 houses. Join us in this sew along as we each create our very own Village quilt. Such a fun quilt that can be made using scraps, charm packs or even Christmas or Halloween themed. Our journey will last about 5 months, with the creation of 8 homes per week. And there will be prizes! As we build our homes and cheer each other on via Instagram, Stitch Supply Co will be picking a weekly winner and sending that person a scrap bag of fabrics perfect for creating more houses. When our village turns into a quilt top, there will be even more prizes.
So here is our schedule/to do list:
- Purchase your very own copy of Village by Jumble, Miss Rosies Quilt Co.
- Decide on your color palette or theme.
- Gather your scraps or charm packs.
- Make sure to follow Stitch Supply Co on Instagram and be sure to tag all your posts with #SewingAVillage so we will be sure to see them. Make your first post with this tag to show you're a part of the Village support team! You can either post your own photo with this tag or repost the Stitch Supply Co's photo.
**Background fabric. If you choose to use the Kona Charm packs you will need 3 packages of charms and 1 1/2 yards off the bolt.
