Modernism: Free quilt pattern from Moda

Modernism
66½" x 72½"
 Free quilt project from Moda

Susan Stiff, Moda's graphic artist, and I came up
with a modern neighborhood for the project for
the Modernism collection.


See the project sheet with the free pattern here:

Each of the houses features an assortment of modern prints.


Susan's patterned it with a bundle of fat eighths for the houses...


and 2 Charm Packs for the border...
plus some other fabrics:
such as 1-1/2 yards for the outer border
and 2 yards of Bella Solid plain for the backgrounds.

Here's an alternate background and border.

For this outer border 1-1/2 yards of Vienna 8270-13

And for the background, 2 yards of 
a lighter Bella Solid like 9900-67
Fig Tree Cream
or a pale gray like 9900-127 Feather

Thank you for such interesting & informative blogs and for researching so many different styles of quilts, fabrics and techniques. I dip into your blog from time to time and then over indulge on back posts. It is all so stimulating.
As a matter of interest, I used to work (in editing) in the former Sanderson factory in Chiswick and overlooked the beautiful little building http://brentfordandchiswicklhs.org.uk/publications/the-journal/journal-10-2000/work-and-colour-sanderson-and-chiswick-1879-1928/ Voysey designed for the firm across an alley way. I would love it if you would have a look at my blog http://www.addisonembroideryatthevicarage.co.uk

Love house blocks. The fabric looks very good with this pattern.

While I am not a modernist person, I can easily see the draw of the fabric shown. VERY nice looking.

Smiles to all
