It's almost here . . . the Bountiful Charity Quilt Along will start in March, and the Fabric Requirements are going to be released just as soon as we reach our first milestone :) This is Fat Quarter Shop's 10th Charity Quilt Along and I am so excited to be a part of it :) This Charity Quilt Along benefits Make a Wish, and there have been so many wonderful Wishes granted from this Quilt Along in the past, and I can't wait to see what Wishes come true this year!!!!

Bountiful Quilt Along - It's Coming!!!
And not only do you help Wishes come True by quilting along . . . but you also get to make this beautiful Bountiful quilt!!!! Fat Quarter Shop has teamed up with Corey Yoder to design this stunning adorable quilt full of baskets, flowers, and butterflies all in a fun layout. I just love this Bountiful quilt design and can't wait to get started on it ;)
The Bountiful Quilt Along block piecing starts on March 3rd, 2023 and a new block/instructions will be released the first Friday of each month until August 2022. Fat Quarter shop is encouraging a donation of just $10 for the use of each free quilt pattern or a total of $50. Please give what you are able, every little bit counts towards granting a child's wish ;) The Fabric Requirements will be released just as soon as we reach the $20,000 milestone of donations. Oh, and each milestone reached going forward will also release a bonus pattern to go along with the Quilt Along, so fun!!!
If you want your Bountiful Quiltt to be just like the original (and don't want to wait for the fabric requirements release :) there is a Bountiful Quilt Kit and Backing Set featuring Sunwashed Fabrics by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. The kit comes with all the fabrics you need for the blocks, background and binding and it even comes in a Bonus Keepsake Box with Magnetic Closure. And one other bonus . . . The Kit comes with all of the patterns so you don't have to wait each month for them to be released, and yes, it's the only place to get them early ;)
But you can always branch out and choose your own fabrics as well ;) I decided to make my Bountiful Quilt with Meadowmere by Gingiber for Moda Fabrics !! I am using Moda Bella White Bleached Solid for my background. I think this is going to give the quilt a totally different look. Very chic and sophisticated and I can't wait!!! And you know, I just love all of the metallic in this line :)
Bountiful Quilt Along Page for all the details and easy access links for the pattern releases :)
I can't wait for some Happy Charity Quilting starting in March and I hope you will be joining in with me for the quilt along fun!!!!
