October is a pretty fabulous time of the year. What could make it even better than pumpkin spice, autumn leaves, and cozy sweaters? a FREE block of the day quilt to sew along together!
This year, Moda Fabrics is sponsoring a block of the day sampler quilt pattern to celebrate and bring awareness for Breast Cancer month. They’ve put together 30 quilt blocks with instructions for you to download and sew. As you might guess, the Stitch Pink original is made with shades of pink and white…but you can make your blocks any style that you like!
Blocks are available one per day from October 1 to October 30. After that, you’ll be able to download all 30 any time (I’ll be keeping them up on this site forever). Each day, I will update this page with the link to the new block of the day. Previous ones will stay, we will just add one each day. Or you can find all of them as they post, <<here>>
There is no charge for the patterns. They are listed as an item in the shop to keep it simple to distribute the pdf files. Once you “check out”, you’ll receive an email containing a link to your pattern. Easy Peasy!
If you do need fabric, I have some suggestions (-:
We have a great selection of pink prints if you are going all in Stitch Pink. <<shop pink fabrics here>>
But….if you are wanting more variety, I put together a kit of fabrics from here in the shop that’s ready to go. Kit includes more fabric than you need so that you can use what you want in each block. If you want to make direct substitutions, I’ve made a chart that shows which fabric in the original quilt that your kit fabric replaces. The chart also has space for your to choose your own palette substitutions.

I also think it would be ideal for any of our bundles…I’m thinking the Tula Pink solids (these are my favorite colors right now!), or go all in for Autumn with an Alison Glass warm bundle. Check out all of our unique and beautiful bundles <<here>>. They make getting started on your quilt easy, no hard decisions!
Hope you are feeling inspired! this project might be just the dose of daily good vibes and creativity we need this month.
Post your progress on social media with #modastitchpink . If you decide to make one with our kit, add #colorgirlquilts
I can’t wait to see what you make!
