Welcome back to the Fat Quarter Shop 2020 Charity Quilt Along, Bloom-Topia! We’re onto the second release of Bloom-Topia! We can’t wait to get to sewing with you. Release 2 reveals the pattern for the gorgeous Carolina Lily Block. If you’re familiar with Flying Geese units, this one will be a walk in the park.
We’re sewing with the Summer Sweet collection by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. To make a quilt just like this one, you’ll need the Bloom-Topia Quilt Kit and Bloom-Topia Specialty Pieced Backing Set, available only at Fat Quarter Shop. If you’re sewing with something different, here are the fabric requirements.
Watch the video tutorial on these blocks for extra help! If you are reading via email, please click here to watch.
Together, Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $20,000 of your donations in 2020 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! 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.
Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $10,000 each in donations for this worthy cause.
Bloom-Topia Quilt Along
We have a great lineup of quilters (including the fabric designers, Sherri & Chelsi!) quilting along with us! Our quilters used a mix of the quilt kit 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 release! Here are some of their blocks:
FQS invited some quilty staff members to join!
Bonus Finishing Patterns for Bloom-Topia
For each milestone goal we hit with our fundraiser, we will be releasing extra finishing patterns you can use with the blocks. You have already helped us reach our goal! As a special thank you we’re releasing a Bonus Bird Mini Quilt.
With your help, we reached our goal of $30,000 in donations towards Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! When you donate, you bring closer to our goal of granting five wishes and closer to releasing a new finishing pattern. Thank you for helping us grant these wishes and for continuing to donate!
