Moda Collection for Cause for Alliance
Jodie catches up with Lissa Alexander at the Moda Fabrics booth at Quilt Market to see the quilt that inspired the latest Collections for a Cause quilt. Lissa explains that Moda’s owner Mark Dunn chooses quilts to reproduce in fabric and offer as both yardage and kits to benefit a worthy cause. This quilt, a nine patch from the Howard Marcus Collection from Western Pennsylvania, benefits the Alliance for American Quilts. The Alliance brings together quiltmakers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors in the cause of documenting, preserving, and sharing our great American quilt heritage. The two main goals of the Quilt Alliance are to further the recognition of quilts and to preserve the history of quilts and their makers. Click to see the fabric collection here.
