Welcome to the Fat Quarter Shop 2019 charity quilt along, the Threadology Quilt Along! This week, we are completing the Threadology Quilt with the Backing Pattern (and it even has an accompanying video tutorial)! This year’s charity quilt has a very unique pieced backing that can be customized to feature any 4 of the blocks featured in the Threadology Quilt. We are also opening up the auction for the completed Threadology Quilt!
You can find all the patterns and videos posted to date on our Threadology Quilt Along page!
Also, be sure to read to the bottom for information on extra settings we did for the Threadology blocks this year as well as our final Threadology Giveaway, the Backing Pattern Giveaway! This is a big one so be sure to enter below! [We have reached all 4 goals for donations to Make-A-Wish and all of the links for all bonus setting patterns are available below.]
See how the back of the quilt comes together in this video tutorial!
Together, Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $20,000 of your donations in 2019 to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas fundraiser, tripling each dollar you donate.
This year’s charity quilt along benefits Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! The generous quilting community has donated $21,501 to date, and we hope to raise even more with our Threadology quilt auction on Ebay.

Threadology Quilt Along
We have a great lineup of quilters quilting along with us! Our quilters used a mix of the quilt kit (we are sold out however you can find the full fabric requirements to make a Threadology Quilt just like ours using Little Snippets collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics) and their own fabrics to make their quilts.
Alternative Finishing Patterns for Threadology
During our charity quilt along, we released extra finishing patterns you can use with the blocks! Thanks to donors like you, we’ve surpassed all three of our initial goals and our stretch goal of $20,000 in donations towards Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! Here are the bonus patterns:
