Healing Hearts for Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief – Ways to Help with FQS

We at Fat Quarter Shop strive to represent the best parts of quilting – the joy of creating and the close sense of kinship with other quilters.  Right now we are called to highlight a different virtue of quilting, the ability to comfort and heal.  The past few weeks have left us in shock.  We don’t have words to describe the devastation and sorrow that Hurricane Harvey has left behind.  It has destroyed homes, livelihoods, and taken far too many lives in Texas, Louisiana and especially Houston, TX.  Now it has been directly followed by Hurricane Irma, impacting Florida and the Carribeans, while still continuing its destruction.

It is hard to describe the personal direct impact on us and our staff.  We are located in Central Texas, and many of our friends and families have been affected, at the least being cut off from necessities, at the worst having lost everything.  If you are one of the affected, know you are in our minds and hearts.  Even if you do not personally know someone affected, chances are you know someone who knows someone.  We are all linked, and we are all in this together.  For the moment, the best we can do is help the relief effort.  We hope you will join us in doing what we can.  If nothing else, please share this post with your family and friends.

Fat Quarter Shop is raising donations for Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief in several ways.  The proceeds will go to the JJ Watt Foundation Houston Flood Relief Fund and the Rebuild Texas Fund to provide supplies, assistance, and support.

We have designed a special Fat Quarter-friendly quilt pattern specifically for this relief effort.  “Healing Hearts” features chains of hearts, a tribute to the sense of unity we need in the wake of these storms.  If you make this quilt, please share it with #healingheartsquilt.

The Healing Hearts quilt pattern is available from now until October 31, 2017, and FQS will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this pattern to the JJ Watt Foundation.

We have made a heartwarming sample quilt of the “Healing Hearts” quilt for auction on eBay, and FQS will donate 100% of the proceeds to the Rebuild Texas Fund.  The auction will end on September 21, 2017.

Fat Quarter Shop lovingly pieced this Healing Hearts quilt with Bee Basics by Lori Holt.  It was professionally long arm-quilted by MyLongArm.com with a beautiful feather design.  Thanks to Codi, Diane and Mike for donating their work and time to piece and quilt this.
