Moda's Piece and Comfort Challenge

With the beginning of a new year, many quilters have made a goal to make a charity quilt or two in 2015.  One of the groups we may remember with our charity quilts is our country's military families.  

Moda has organized a challenge for 2015 calling "Piece and Comfort" to recognize and honor the sacrifices that are made by our country's military families. Moda would like quilters to create a quilt to honor a military family in their circle of friends, community, or nation.

CHALLENGE RULES:  The challenge runs through March 31, 2015.  Ninety percent of the quilt must be made with Moda fabrics. Fifty percent of the Moda fabrics must come from one or both of the Moda fabric lines Red, White & Free by Sandy Gervais or Because of the Brave by Moda.  Quilts must be 54 inches x 65 inches or larger.  Quilt remains the property of the maker unless they choose to donate the quilt to a military family.  Entry forms are available here.  Please read the complete challenge rules available here.

Stitchin' It Up Quilt Shop is honored to be participating in this challenge.  You can send a photo of your completed quilt to us at with your name, the quilter's name, your city, size of the quilt, and contact information by March 31, 2015.  We will post all of the quilt entries we receive on this blog on April 6, 2015, and will allow our blog followers to vote for their favorite until April 18. The quilt with the most votes will win a Viewer's Choice Award and prize from Moda and will then be entered into Moda's Piece and Comfort online quilt show with the national winner announced May 8, 2015.  Prize awards for the Moda online show will be given.
