2021 Serendipity Quilt Along – Release 2

Welcome back to the Fat Quarter Shop 2021 Charity Quilt Along, Serendipity! Chances are you’re going to like this next pattern release! The Happy Chance Row is a string of Flying Geese blocks all in a row. Let’s gather our supplies and get started!


For this row you have the option to use a traditional piecing method for making Flying Geese or to use the 1.5” x 3” Flying Geese Foundation Paper. Our pattern gives instructions for both. We’re sewing with the Spring Brook fabric collection designed by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. If you’re sewing with something different, here are the fabric requirements to make this year’s charity quilt.

Sew Along with Kimberly!

On Monday, April 5 at 9am CST, tune in to the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel to sew along with Kimberly on Release 2!

Our Threadology Quilt Along benefits the children and families of the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Our Serendipity Quilt and Cross Stitch Chart benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.

Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $30,000 in donations for this worthy cause. 

As we embark on our 8th Annual Charity Quilt we continue to be amazed by the generosity of this sewing community and inspired by the stories of the children who have been granted life-changing Wishes. How does this fundraiser work? We offer the Serendipity patterns as FREE downloads during the event 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 of $50. No amount is too small and every bit counts.

Serendipity Quilt Along

We have a great lineup of quilters 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 the fabrics they’re sewing with! Here are some of their blocks:

Bonus Finishing Patterns for Serendipity

For each milestone goal we hit with our fundraiser, we will be releasing extra finishing patterns you can use with the blocks.  We’ll release them for each stretch goal reached! Thanks to your generous donations, we’ve already raised over $50,000! With your help, we have met our $50,000 goal… and now we want to give even more! If we reach $70,000, then we will be able to grant 10 wishes through Make-A-Wish. We’re more than halfway to our goal, so today we’re releasing our second bonus pattern today!

With your help, we can reach our goal of $70,000 in donations towards Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! When you donate today, you’ll get us closer to our goal of granting 10 wishes, and closer to releasing a new finishing pattern.

Join us!

We hope to see you back here on the blog on Thursday, April 15 for the third pattern release of our 2021 Serendipity Charity Quilt Along!

We also have a wonderful cross stitch design that you can stitch. The Serendipity Stitch Along will run in tandem with the Quilt Along. You can find all the information and updates on our Stitch Along page.

Until then, Happy Quilting!
