We’re back for the final post in the Heartfelt Charity Quilt Along! This year’s charity quilt was lovely to sew and share with others, and raising money for Make-a-Wish made this heartfelt quilt all the better.
Heartfelt Quilt Auction
First of all, we’re thrilled to share with you the quilt auction results!
The Heartfelt Charity Quilt Auction raised $5,810! Corey Yoder, Pat Sloan, Lisa Bongean, and Kimberly Jolly generously donated their quilts for auction, and we are sew grateful they did! 100% of these proceeds will be added to the donation total.
Funds Raised for Charity
During the Heartfelt Charity Quilt Along, we gave each monthly block pattern away for free while asking for a suggested donation of $5 per pattern. Altogether, the generous quilting community donated $103,101, allowing us to reach our fundraising goal! Paired with the quilt auction and matches made by Moda Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop, we raised a total of $138,911 this year for Make-a-Wish.
At this time, Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas has matched six kids with Fat Quarter Shop to receive Wishes. These kids and several more will receive their special wishes thanks to donors like you. Kids like Victoria, a 7-year-old girl diagnosed with a Nervous System disorder who loves watching movies, will receive a wheelchair ramp for her home to make it more accessible. Omar, another movie lover who also loves the water, will be receiving an ADA-accessible pool! We can’t wait to see these kids receive their Wishes.
Since 2014, the charity quilt alongs by Fat Quarter Shop and our community have helped raise over $650,000 and granted a total of 110 wishes!
