2015 Piece and Comfort Challenge

 

WHAT:  Moda's 2015 Piece and Comfort Challenge

WHEN:  January 1 - March 15, 2015 

 

Calling all quilters:  Moda Fabrics is sponsoring a special quilt challenge to honor the sacrifices made by U.S. military families.  Plus, a portion of the fabric proceeds benefits USA Cares.  What better way to show your own patriotic appreciation than by accepting the challenge and making a quilt!

Here's how it works.  As an official 2015 Piece and Comfort Challenge Shop, Bloomerie has all you need to make a patriotic quilt. 

 

  • 1. Review the challenge rules below.
  • 2. Plan your quilt and purchase required fabric (you may design your own pattern or use a commercial one).
  • 3. Make your quilt.
  • 4. Take photos and complete the entry form here
  • 5. Submit your photos and entry form to us via e-mail no later than March 15, 2015.

So get started! 

After everyone submits their completed quilt info via e-mail (required: photo + entry form), we'll host an online show of our customers' challenge quilts, where our customers can vote for their favorites.  Our top vote-getter will advance as the Bloomerie winner in April to enter the national competition.  Yes, that could be you --  and yes, there's a prize for our winner (TBA by Moda).   Moda has even more prizes at the national level (see below).

NOTE: Since your quilts will be entered electronically; they will remain in your possession.  Do not mail them. 

 

CHALLENGE RULES:

Ninety percent of each quilt must be made with Moda fabrics. Plus, 50 percent of the Moda fabrics must come from one or both of the featured collections (Note: Bloomerie carries Red, White & Free).  Pattern choice is up to you.
