Greetings, friends! This year’s Bountiful Charity Quilt Along is almost finished – what an accomplishment! We’re ready to wrap things up with the backing pattern, and look forward to seeing all your completed quilts soon. Be sure to read to the end of the post for our sixth Bountiful Charity Cross Stitch release and information about this year’s charity quilt raffle!
The sixth and final pattern release is the Bountiful Backing Pattern! We’re sewing with the Sunwashed collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. If you’re joining us late or sewing on your own, you can find all the patterns and fabric requirements on the announcement post.
This Year’s Quilt Raffle for Charity
By popular request, this year’s charity quilts (5 in all) will be raffled off to benefit Make-a-Wish! This special raffle gives so many quilt fans the chance to win a quilt (spending $10 per ticket vs bidding hundreds of dollars in a quilt auction). Raffle tickets will be $10 each, and you’ll have the chance to buy raffle tickets for your favorite quilt or quilts.
We are grateful to Corey Yoder, Lisa Bongean, Pat Sloan and Robin Pickens for joining Kimberly Jolly in donating their Bountiful quilts for the raffle! The dates of the charity quilt raffle will be September 14 – 23, so stay tuned to the blog for updates on it!
Sew Along with Kimberly!
On Friday, August 11th at 9 AM CT, tune in to the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel, for a live tutorial with Kimberly Jolly.
As we finish our 10th Annual Charity Quilt, we hope this incredible sewing community will come together and help us reach our fundraising goal again this year to grant more life-changing Wishes to kids here in Texas. Will you help us? 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.
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.
For each milestone goal we achieve 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!
Bountiful Cross Stitch
Don’t forget to finish stitching the companion cross stitch design as part of the Bountiful Stitch Along! This stunning cross stitch design is overflowing with flowers and butterflies that match the 2023 Bountiful Charity Quilt.
Visit the Bountiful Stitch Along page to find all the cross stitch details on this design.
Don’t forget – you can find all the patterns and videos for the event on the Bountiful Quilt Along page at anytime!
We hope to see you back here on the blog on Thursday, September 14 for the start of our charity raffle for Make-a-Wish!
Until then, Happy Quilting!
