The Fat Quarter Shop's annual Charity Quilt along, stars today and this year has us making awesome patchwork blocks in two sizes for the Threadology Quilt !!! I am so super excited. This year the Quilt Along will benefit the Make a Wish Foundation . I just love this quilt along and how great it is to be quilting for such an amazing cause!!! And each year when I finish my Charity Quilt along quilt, I donate it to the Festival of Trees fundraiser in honor of my sweet little nephew David . So it just doubles the great causes, and makes it all the more awesome!!!
Today the fabric requirements are being released. If you want yours to look like the original above, you can order a Threadology Quilt Along Kits which comes with half yards in Bonnie and Camille's adorable new Little Snippets line as well as some bonuses like Aurifil thread, the full pattern (so you can work ahead if you like) and keepsake box with a magnetic closure . I totally love Bonnie and Camille fabrics, but figured I best use some of my stash, since I have quite a few bundles stacking up ;) So my plan is to use some Handmade, Hello Darling, Little Ruby, and a bit of Daysail. It's going to be so fun picking out which fabrics to use each month!!!
And of course, you know I always have to change things up a bit :) Since I will be donating this quilt when it is done, I wanted to make it a little more universal, rather than specifically for a quilter. So I am not going to do the spool layout (even though it is so totally adorable!!!). Instead, I plan to make 3 Large Blocks and 6 Small Blocks each month and than turn it into this fun patchwork layout that will finish at 72" square. So if you wonder each time I post blocks why there are so many, this is why ;)
So what do you say?? Wan't to quilt along for a great cause??? If so, be sure to pop on over and get the Fabric Requirements and then grab a Kits or gather from your stash, and be ready. The first block pattern release will be on Feb 1. It's going to be so much fun!!! And you can always pop on over to the Threadology Quilt Along page for all the details on this awesome Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop :)
