Patchwork Quilt Along

 Have you heard about the Patchwork Quilt Along by Fat Quarter Shop?

Welcome to the 2017 Patchwork Quilt Along! Join me and a smattering of other awesome quilters while we sew this collection of 12 different classic patchwork blocks to create the lovely Patchwork Quilt!
The 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!
 This year, Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $20,000 of donations raised!  So help them reach that goal!
There are kits or you can quilt along with your own.   The blocks are free every 15th of the month. They only ask for a suggested donation of $5 to the Make a Wish campaign for each time you make a download.
I'm a little late posting because I just received my kit that Fat Quarter Shop today!
I'll be posting the January Block as soon as I get a chance, so keep your eyes peeled.

 But it is already available on the Jolly Jabber, Fat Quarter Shop's blog.  
Please also go check out the quilt requirements or check out the Kit they have already put together.  There are limited amounts available, so if you are serious about it, hurry up and grab yourself one.
*Psst! The designers of the quilt's fabrics - Bonnie & Camille - are sewing along, too! Fun!
