Welcome to the Fat Quarter Shop 2019 charity quilt along, the Threadology Quilt Along! We are so excited to present the first block in this year’s quilt along, the Ohio Star Block (free pattern and video tutorial)! We are sold out of the Threadology Quilt Kit and Backing set so if you are just joining us, you can find the full fabric requirements to make a Threadology Quilt just like ours (we used the Little Snippets collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics). We will also be posting all the patterns and videos posted so far on our Threadology Quilt Along page!
Also, be sure to read to the bottom for exclusive information on extra settings we will be doing for the Threadology blocks this year as well as our Block 1 Giveaway!
Here is the video tutorial for the Ohio Star Block!
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 will benefit Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! We are offering all of the patterns to make this quilt for free, we just ask that you donate $5 per pattern download to this amazing organization and 100% of the proceeds from the pattern downloads will be donated to Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas. We are partnering with Moda Fabrics once again, who has generously worked with us since we started doing these quilt alongs to benefit our community (see the Make-A-Wish video HERE).
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 blocks. Click on each of the photos to see them up close and see what collections they used as well as tips and tricks they have to make the first block!
New Finishing Patterns for Threadology
We are so excited to be announcing that along with having the block patterns for Threadology, we will be releasing extra finishing patterns you can do with the blocks! When your donations reach the goals listed above ($3,500, $7,000 and $10,000), you will “unlock” a new pattern! We will release one extra setting pattern for you to transform your Threadology blocks into a new project!
