Take Heart Quilt Fundraiser

What started as a creative way to connect while social distancing, this quilt block is now an avenue to raise funds for the Family Stabilization Fund for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) families in need in our local neighborhood. This fund, organized by SEI, prioritizes households in our neighborhood in NE Portland who have been impacted negatively by COVID-19 and not receiving adequate government aid.

As a team, we’ve been encouraged by this project and the positive response we saw immediately! The warmth of home we’ve created at MD looks a bit different these days, but we’re thrilled to see it is still very much alive and well through projects like this.

We hope this free Take Heart quilt block pattern helps you know we are thinking about you and sends you a bit of warmth we all need. Both the process of quilting and knowing it will ultimately help the community certainly brings a comfort. We hope you feel it too!

Feel free to share the block with your friends and family. Together we can take heart knowing we will see each other on the other side of this.


Take heart. Take Action.

We are no longer taking block donations.

We received hundreds of quilt blocks from our community near and far! Your blocks were used to create four quilts, three were raffled for fundraising, and one was donated to SEI.

Blocks that were mailed to Modern Domestic were used to make quilts to raise funds for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School Family Stabilization Fund. This organization prioritizes households impacted negatively by COVID-19 who are not receiving adequate government aid.

    Hello! I just made my first order with you and scrolled down the page looking at the cool heart quilt pattern you sent. Thank you! At the bottom of the page you have a SHOP NOW button and a 20% off coupon code. I tried to apply it to my cart (because there are so many cool fabrics I like and oh! I saw you have elastic!) but it didn’t work! It says SEWATHOME is not valid. Am I doing something wrong? Does it only work on certain items? Thank you for your help!
