Today we’re announcing the kick-off of the 2022 Stronger Together Quilt and Cross Stitch Auction in support of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF)!
First, we wanted to thank you all, with the Stronger Together Quilt Along and Stitch Along our incredible community has raised over $17,000 for UNCF which means we surpassed our goal! But, we aren’t done quite yet.
Starting today, March 17, through March 27 we are auctioning off Kimberly’s finished Stronger Together Quilt and Cross Stitch!
Kimberly made her Stronger Together quilt using Creativity Glows by Creativity Shell for Moda Fabrics. This quilt measures approximately 44.5″ square, perfect for a lap quilt. The quilt was beautifully quilted by Gina Tell of Thread Graffiti. The backing features a friendship star quilt block with a personal quilt label from Kimberly Jolly.
Go bid on Kimberly’s Stronger Together Quilt on eBay and please share!

For her Stronger Together Cross Stitch piece, Kimberly used NPI #485, #493, #482, #561, and 18ct Aida White Petit Point on Gray by Zweigart. This cross stitch measures approximately 6.5″ square, is signed on the back by Kimberly, and is finished and framed, ready for displaying.

Beautiful! And a very worthy cause. I hope it makes lots of money. Will the quilt pattern be available at some time? I’m looking to make my husband a quilt, and something like this would be perfect. Not too feminine, just beautiful. Thanks for all you do. The tutorials, the fabrics, free patterns, and supporting worthy causes.
