Collections for a Cause from Moda Fabrics by Howard Marcus & 3Sisters
This Collection from Moda Fabrics is for the benefit of the Parkinsons Foundation.
Etchings is the latest Collection for a Cause, a series of fabrics based on antique textiles from the quilts and mill book collections of Moda’s president,Mark Dunn. This year’s Collection benefits the Parkinson’s Foundation (www.parkinson.org), which works to study and treat a disease that affects many, including folks affiliated with Moda.
A collage-style fabric that mixes imagery from antique architecture books and text—a signaturelook for 3 Sisters—was reintroduced but updated to reflect the collection’s focus on Parkinson’sdisease. Motivational words including compassion,optimism, and calm are affixed to labels from vintage bottles, and text includes the signature o fthe scientist who discovered Parkinson’s disease and a quote from Shakespeare on friendship.
There are also words from one of the best-known Americans diagnosed with Parkinson’s, Michael J. Fox:“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized, and cruelly mocked but cannot be taken away unless it’s surrendered.”
Combined with the text is imagery including a tulip,recognized by Parkinson’s organizations as a symbolof optimism and hope, and a tree representing growth and strength.
Layer Cake consists of 42 -10 in. squares
