2023 Bountiful Quilt Along – Release 4: Butterflies & Posy Blocks

It’s time for the fourth release in our 10th Annual Charity Quilt, Bountiful! We can’t wait to see your Butterflies & Posy blocks! Be sure to read to the end of the post for our fourth Bountiful Charity Cross Stitch release.


The fourth pattern release, the Butterflies & Posy blocks, are flying to you today! You’ll need to make two of these for the quilt. We’re sewing with the Sunwashed collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. If you’re sewing with something different, download the fabric requirements to make this year’s charity quilt.

Sew Along with Kimberly!

On Friday, June 2nd at 9 AM CT, tune in to the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel, and sew along with Kimberly Jolly as she shows you how to make this block in a special prerecorded video.

Our Bountiful Quilt and Cross Stitch Patterns benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.

As we sew our 10th 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. The fundraiser works by offering the Bountiful patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. From now through August, we will publish a new pattern here on the blog on the first Friday of each month.

Bountiful Quilting Spotlight

We have a great lineup of quilters sewing along with us (like you if you’re reading this)! See what this month’s designer and quilter had to share below.

Sherri McConnell

Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life (@aquiltinglife) is a talented fabric and pattern designer, author, and podcast host. She is sewing her Bountiful Charity Quilt in Bountiful Blooms by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics, and we love how it looks!

We asked Sherri, What practice of yours has yielded the most “bountiful” results for you in quilting? Why?

“I always have something ready to work on as soon as I walk into my sewing room. I also have projects ready to take on trips at all times. For example, a log cabin quilt made from scraps. I always have something scrappy ready to work on in my sewing room!”

Be sure to follow Sherri on Instagram (@aquiltinglife) to see what she’s up to!

Bonus Finishing Patterns for Bountiful

As an added bonus, we’re releasing extra finishing patterns you can use with the blocks! When you donate today, you’ll get us closer to our goal of granting ten wishes and closer to releasing a new bonus pattern. We’re less than $10,000 away from our next bonus release pattern!

For each milestone goal we hit with our fundraiser, we will release extra finishing patterns you can use with the blocks. At $40,000, $60,000, $80,000, and $100,000, we will celebrate with a new free pattern release!
