We’re back for the final post in the Threadology Quilt Along! This week, we’re celebrating our amazing success this year – all thanks to you! – and showing off some completed quilts. This year’s charity quilt was a lot of fun to sew and share with others, and the motivation for making it (raising money for Make-a-Wish) made this lovely quilt all the more so.
Threadology Quilt Auction
First of all, we’re thrilled to share with you the quilt auction results!
The Threadology quilt auction on June 24 raised $1,437! Pat Sloan and Melissa Corry generously donated their quilts for auction, and we are sew grateful they did! 100% of those proceeds will be added to the donation.
Funds Raised for Charity
During the Threadology Charity Quilt Along we gave each monthly block pattern away for free while asking for a suggested donation of $5 per pattern. We also released four addition block settings as fundraising goals were met. Altogether, the generous quilting community donated $21,648.96! That blew our original fundraising goal out of the water!
Moda and Fat Quarter Shop together will donate $20,000 for a total of $43,085.96 for Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas in their work granting wishes to children with critical illnesses. Thank you everyone!!
Threadology Quilt Along
We’ve enjoyed a great lineup of quilters quilting along with us! Our quilters used Little Snippets collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics or chose their own fabrics to make variations on the quilt.
**The Backing winner is Heather H. and she has accepted her prize. **
Thank you for joining us!
