Moonbeams Quilt Along - It's Coming!!!

 I am so excited for the new Moonbeams Charity Quilt Along!!!  This is Fat Quarter Shop's 11th Charity Quilt Along and I can't wait for March to get started :)    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!!!!

And not only do you help Wishes come True by quilting along . . . but you also get to make this beautiful Moonbeams Quilt!!!!   Isn't that just stunning!!!    I just love this  Moonbeams Quilt design and again, I  can't wait to get started on it ;)  

The Moonbeams Quilt Along starts on March 1st, 2024 and a new block/instructions will be released the first Friday of each month until September 2024.   Fat Quarter shop is encouraging a donation of just $10 for the use of each free quilt pattern or a one time donation 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 Moonbeams Quilt to be just like the original (and don't want to wait for the fabric requirements release :)   there is a  Moonbeams Quilt Kit and Backing Set featuring Strawberry Lemonade Fabrics by Sherri and Chelsi 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 loved my Bountiful Quilt from last year done in with Meadowmere by Gingiber for Moda Fabrics  that I am thinking this year I want to do a second Gingiber quilt and use her new Imaginary Flowers Fabric that will be coming out in February, just in time for the QAL!!   But now I just have to decide what color background to use.  I am debating between the white on white print, the blue polka dot or the black polka dot.    What do you think will look best??? 

So will you be joining in and quilting along for a great cause??  You still have lots of time to get ready and it's going to be so much fun!!! Pop on over to the 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!!!!
