Each year, I donate a quilt to be auctioned off to the Festival of Trees in honor of my sweet little nephew David (who is doing so great!!!) And for the last few years 5 years I have donated my annual Fat Quarter Shop Charity Quilt :) I love that this allows so much good to be tied up into one quilt ;) So of course, I am so super excited that Fat Quarter Shop has announced their Charity Quilt for 2020 benefiting Make a Wish, and this year, it is Serendipity!!!!

Serendipity Charity Quilt Along for 2021- It's Coming!!!!
Isn't this just a beautiful quilt!!!! I can't wait to get started on this wonderful row along!!! I love that these blocks will teach a lot of great techniques and I will have fun piecing all of that pointy goodness. But I also love that we get to make each block several times, meaning assembly line, which always makes the piecing go super fast!!!!
The Serendipity Quilt Along block piecing starts on February 1st, but the cool thing is, Fat Quarter Shop has already released the Fabric Requirements!!! Serendipity features Spring Brook Fabric by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. Spring Brook Fabric releases in January, but you can reserve an exclusive Serendipity Quilt Kit and Backing Set now, (And isn't that quilt back just so fun!!!!)
After a lot of debate, I decided I am going to use a Happy Days Fat Quarter Bundle by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics and for the background I am going to use the small dot grey print from the line!!! I love the how happy this line is and I think the colors are just going to pop all the more on that grey background!!! And believe it or not . . . I plan to do the quilt in the exact same layout as the original this year ;) Yup, she can follow directions every once and a while, tee hee hee!!
So do you want to join in and quilt along for a great cause?? Download the Fabric Requirements, have fun shopping, and then mark your calendar for January 15th, the Serendipity Kick-off!!! It's going to be so much fun!!! You can pop on over to the Bloom-topia Quilt Along page for all the details and easy access links for the pattern releases :)
