2017 Patchwork Quilt Along: Block 12 – Mother’s Own, Finishing, & Backing

We are on the final block of the quilt! We are on Block 12 – Mother’s Oven in our Patchwork Quilt Along and we’ll even show you a finishing pattern to help you complete the quilt top! We also are providing a backing pattern that makes a block on the back of the quilt! Hopefully you are all caught up with the first eleven blocks.  If you are just now joining us, welcome! Our quilt is made in Bonnie & Camille Basics.

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 have reached our goal, well before the end of the year, thanks to our generous community of quilters, so all the matches will be maxed out!  Woohoo!!  Please do continue donating – every dollar makes a difference!

Also, a big THANK YOU to everyone who placed their bids on Kimberly and Pat’s completed Patchwork Quilts! The auction is still going on until 10 AM CST so get your final bids in as soon as you can!
