2017 Patchwork Quilt Along: Block 7 - Propeller - Fat Quarter Shop

2017 Patchwork Quilt Along: Block 7 – Propeller

It’s already time for Block #7 – Propeller in our Patchwork Quilt Along!  Hopefully you are all caught up with the first five blocks.  If you are just now joining us, welcome!  Our quilt is made in Bonnie & Camille Basics in the Patchwork Quilt Along Quilt Kit.

Most importantly, we are benefiting Make-A-Wish with this year’s quilt along.  We are asking for a small donation each month in exchange for the monthly patterns, and Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will each match up to $10,000 of donations raised.  We have reached our goal, well before the end of the year, thanks to our generous community of quilters, so all the matches will be maxed out!  Woohoo!!  Please do continue donating – every dollar makes a difference!

  1. How incredibly wonderful to have reached your monetary goal and to have to matching donations. What an incredible idea this was! Kudos to the quilting community for making it happen! I’m a New Braunfels resident and I know this will have a lasting impact on the region!

  2. I was very sad to find out that Renee of “Sewn with Grace” had died. Her last post she shared how she broke her ankle and had been knitting her way to recovery upstairs. I hope all of us with gratitude for our lives today. I know my family would miss me terribly! I feel like Kaholly in congratulating the quilting community for all the contributions. Each $5 adds up to big results that change lives.

    Thank you for the cute block.

    1. Hi Donna, we found out about her death recently as well, and are very saddened. Our sympathies, condolences and prayers go out to her family.
