Sewing a Village
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.
