Let's Make A Village With Moda

One Village Together...  

That is what the Moda Villages quilt will help us build. 

Have you seen the Moda sew-along "One Village, Together"? You create small house
 blocks from your stash and scraps and trade them with all your friends to create
 distinct and unique village quilts.  There are many groups now doing this worldwide 
 on Facebook, through guilds, with local quilt shops and just groups of friends.  I am
 in several of these groups and  it is turning out to be great fun and a much needed 
distraction from the state the world is in. 

So, sheltering at home, we can create these magical little house 'shelters'. 

And I want you to be part of my village!  Send me a block and I'll send you one back.  
But let’s make it bit more interesting.
Get the Village pattern
1.)  Sew a house block per the pattern 
2.)  ADD a 1 1/2" x 7" neutral strip to 
one side of your block with your name, 
city, state/province and country and the
year '2020' written below.
3.)  Mail your block to me by May 30, 
2020 and I will return to you one of mine.

Send your block to:
Sue Michaels
Dragonfly Fiberart Pattern Company
4 Haywick Drive
Stratham, NH 03885
I will collect all of your blocks and make them into quilts which I will then share.  
Swap blocks with your friends and build your own village quilt as well!  
Join one of the many Facebook groups to swap even more blocks with new friends 
around the world.
Hope you will join me!

So I Know It's Been A While...

It's been a crazy year!  I retired from the corporate world so that I could devote 100% of my time to quilting, crafts and my pattern company.  So here I am!  Stay tuned for lots more to come in tutorials, free patterns, fun tips and techniques and maybe I might make a few videos or write a book!  The options are endless but no matter what comes next, it will be fun and crafty!

Fun Little Easter Baskets To Make With Fabric

I was poking around on the web and Pinterest and there are so many cute ideas out there for little Easter Baskets.  I thought I would share a few of the links with you!  These would be wonderful to make and fill with goodies for all your Easter guests.  In our house you are never too old to receive a basket and even the grownup 'kids' look forward to their little treats!  Send me pictures of your finished beauties and we will post them on the Dragonfly Fiberart Facebook page!   Have Fun and don't forget to give us a like!

Positively Splendid is a fun blogspot with lots of creative ideas but I really thought this little fabric Easter Pail was adorable!

Fabric Easter Basket Pattern ::

The Moda Bakeshop has this free pattern for a wrapped rope basket using a honeybun

These little woven baskets form Natalie Raevsky are a bit more rustic and I think I would add a handle but they would be fun to make!

These cute little baskets from Simply Notable were really tiny but she gives you a formula to create them in any size.  I love the little flower detail on the front!

DIY Fabric Easter Basket

This was a cute little basket from Dabble with a bit more structure to it.  You could add some lace and trims to really make it sparkle!
