Stitch Pink 2020 Quilt Along - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Stitch Pink 2020 Quilt Along

Are you ready to stitch up 30 perfectly pink blocks this October? We’re spreading Breast Cancer awareness with Moda Fabrics all October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! To help spread awareness and bring our community together, Moda Fabrics is offering the FREE Stitch Pink 2020 Quilt Along and we have everything you need to get started!

The Stitch Pink 2020 Quilt Along is in support of Moda’s virtual awareness-raising event which will last throughout October. The quilt along begins October 1 on Moda’s blog where they will release a new block pattern each day until October 31! The quilt is sewn up in Moda Grunge Basics finishing at 64″ x 76″ for the quilt top and binding.

We’ll be sewing along with Moda using the Stitch Pink October 2020 Quilt Kit that includes more than 10 yards of Grunge Basics for the piecing and the background. We also have the matching Backing Set for a perfectly pink quilt that really pops with color!

If you’d like to add more pink to your October, we also have the Stitch Pink Grunge Basics Fat Quarter Bundle curated by Fat Quarter Shop!

The Stitch Pink Grunge Basics Fat Quarter Bundle comes with 10 fat quarters from a light pink to a deep red.

  1. I’m sure this is done with all best intentions. However, many breast cancer patients/survivors are deeply offended by the “pinkification” of breast cancer awareness. It’s rarely clear how the corporations who use this health issue are actually supporting research or treatment for patients. Instead, it usually looks like a pure grab for profits on the backs of sufferers. In addition, you should know there are NO means to “prevent” breast cancer. Reducing risk is possible, mostly through maintaining a healthy weight and getting enough exercise. Aside from that, little can be done to reduce risk. Please get the facts, and talk to more than a few women who have walked this path to get their take on it. Feel free to contact me if you would like to start here.

    1. Hi Melanie,

      Thank you for your comment. We appreciate the feedback and will keep it in mind going forward. We clarified our note about breast cancer detection rather than prevention. As a company, we always try to make a difference with our sew alongs. For this one, we are promoting the sales of our pink Stash ‘n Stores to raise money for the fight against breast cancer. We expect a successful fundraiser that will have a positive impact on the community. Please continue to provide us with your feedback. We are always listening and striving to do better.

  2. I would like to participate in the Quilt-a-long please. I am a Breast Cancer survivor of 11 years. Unlike Ms. McNeil, I am not offended by the “pinkafication”, nor are any of the survivors I know. I look forward to this project.

    Thank you.

  3. Is there a fabric requirements listed anywhere for this quilt along? I couldn’t find anything anywhere. If I have the ability, this is one I would love to do for a survivor family member. Or at least some of the blocks for a runner. The bundles are no where near the amount the quilt kit is selling. I can’t figure if I would need a couple of those bundles and how much is background. Thanks!

  4. I guess the biggest thing is, we are all different. Those of us who have survived thus far with our brush, one or more times with breast cancer all have different beliefs about the ‘pink’ and the ‘ribbon’. However, I think that this should be treated like all other breast cancer, its AWARENESS. Personally I hate the pink and the ribbon because it is raw with me. Enjoy the sewing and think of it as a celebration quilt. 🙂 Thanks to FQS/Moda for this FREE gift.

  5. I to am interested in making this quilt. The link above to moda does not lead to any information on the requirements for this quilt.
    Any info on yardage of the pinks and background is greatly appreciated.

  6. I’m just happy to have another free quilt along. I’ll quilt along with everyone else but just not use pink. I’m not sure what colors I will use it might be pink or maybe not.

  7. This quilt is beautiful and I would love to join in the QAL if time permits for me. I have so many other projects going on this year, so I’ll see when the time gets closer. But if I do participate, I’ll use a different color per block… I and a friend of mine both are rectal cancer survivors, and another friend is battling kidney cancer as we speak… I would like to make this into a quilt that recognizes other cancers besides just breast cancer. I never see any other cancer color supported in quilt projects and QAL’s, so I look forward to the chance to try and do just that by hopefully participating!

  8. Thank you for creating this quilt! I am a breast cancer survivor and I love pink. I host a group of women where we make quilts for women fighting breast cancer. We will be working on this one together and when it’s done we will donate it to the breast cancer organization we support and hope they will raise a lot of money to support women in our community.
