We are proud to present the 2020 Bloom-Topia Quilt Along! Join us in making this flower-filled quilt of rosebuds and blooms featuring Summer Sweet by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics! The Bloom-Topia sampler quilt combines unique and historical blocks in a vintage style, along with a specialty pieced back that is a picture-perfect way to commemorate our time sewing along together.
Our Bloom-Topia Quilt and Cross Stitch Chart benefits Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.
Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $10,000 each in donations for this worthy cause.
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.
Our exclusive quilt kit includes 11.75 yards of Summer Sweet fabric designed by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics and Bella Solids fabric. This includes all fabric to complete the quilt blocks along with background, borders and binding for the 64.5″ x 82.5″ Bloom-Topia quilt. This also includes patterns, an exclusive half-rectangle triangle template and a roll of Triangles on a Roll 3″ Half Square Triangle Paper. As a bonus, it comes packaged in an exclusive keepsake box with magnetic closure.
Our exclusive backing set includes 7.5 yards of Summer Sweet fabric, backing pattern, as well as an exclusive mousepad that will only be available with this backing set. The quilt finishes at 64.5″ x 82.5″.
You can also use your own choice of fabrics by using our fabric requirements (we’re releasing them early since we reached a donation milestone of $3,000!)
and checking back every two weeks to download the patterns as they are posted!
The Bloom-Topia Quilt Kit comes with lots of exclusive goodies, including the full set of patterns for the quilt top and finishing will be included, along with an exclusive half-rectangle triangle template and Triangles on a Roll 3″ triangle paper. It all comes packaged in an exclusive keepsake box with magnetic closure.
The Bloom-Topia Specialty Pieced Backing Set comes with the backing pattern and an exclusive mousepad.
If you’re new to our Charity Quilt Along, welcome! The way the fundraiser works is that we offer the Bloom-Topia patterns as FREE downloads during the quilt along for a suggested donation of $5 each to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. Or feel free to make a larger, one-time donation.
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!

This will be my first year participating. So excited!
I’m glad you’re joining us!
This is my first charity quilt participation. Love the pattern and the fabric collection.
I had sew much fun piecing with y’all & enjoyed it sew much! Also I enjoyed winning the prizes! Thanks for your generosity & the beautiful quilt!
Thank you, Marcia! I’m so glad you joined us for the most recent sew along!
Wondering if the background fabric is included in the kit? If not…can you tell me the name and manufacturer of the display? Looking forward to my first quilt along.
Michelle, Sorry for the late reply! Yes, the quilt kit includes all fabric to complete the quilt blocks along with background, borders and binding. It has what you see on the Fabric Requirements sheet in terms of those exact fabrics for the top of the quilt.
