2017 Patchwork Quilt Along: Block 6

It’s already time for Block #6 in our Patchwork Quilt Along!  Hopefully you are all caught up with the first five blocks.  If you are just now joining us, welcome!  Our quilt is made in Bonnie & Camille Basics in the Patchwork Quilt Along Quilt Kit, and there are still kits available.

Most importantly, we are benefiting Make-A-Wish with this year’s quilt along.  We are asking for a small donation each month in exchange for the monthly patterns, and Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will each match up to $10,000 of donations raised.  We are close to our $10,000 goal, thanks to your amazing support!

Introducing our 2017 Quilt Along to Benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation: Patchwork!

Here at Fat Quarter Shop we love using our “quilty powers” for good, which is why we organize Charity Quilt Alongs like Crossroads and Snapshots.  We’ll be sharing the last of our Crossroads patterns later this month on the 15th, and are SUPER EXCITED to share our Quilt Along for 2017. This upcoming event has all the makings of a great Quilt Along! 
* Fabulous pattern? Check!
* Gorgeous fabric collection? Check!
* Monthly video tutorials to help you assemble your very own Patchwork quilt? Check!
* The opportunity to help others by quilting and doing something fun each month? CHECK!
We’ll also have some of our favorite quilty bloggers sewing along with us, showing you their progress along the way. We love seeing the quilts made with both the kit fabric and with the other fabrics quilters sometimes choose, don’t you?! The Patchwork Quilt Along is going to be great fun!
So, without further ado, we present you with our 2017 Patchwork Quilt Along!
Our Patchwork Quilt Along benefits Make-A-Wish. This fantastic organization grants the wishes of children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Make-A-Wish believes a wish experience can be a game-changer. Granted wishes help children feel stronger, more energetic, and more willing to face their medical battle, and for many the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses! 

Our beautiful Patchwork quilt uses the Bonnie & Camille Basic collection, and we have both Patchwork Quilt Along Quilt Kits and Backing Sets available for pre-order.  Sew fun!

We hope you’ll support the Make-A-Wish Foundation by quilting along with us in 2017!  Let’s make a difference in the lives children in need, and their families, by using our superpower: quilting!
