Today we are excited to share the first block in the Threadology Charity Quilt Along hosted by our friends at Fat Quarter Shop! Each year Fat Quarter Shop hosts a charity quilt along, and this year their efforts and donations will benefit Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas. <3 Our very own Social Media Coordinator, Hilary Jordan will be sewing along and sharing progress here on the Auribuzz.
The quilt along is open to anyone to join and every month FQS will offer the block pattern to make this quilt for free. They simply ask that you donate around $5 per pattern download to this amazing organization and 100% of the proceeds from the pattern downloads will be donated to Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! Be sure to watch Kimberly Jolly’s video on why they have partnered with Make-A-Wish and how our donations help children in need.
Together, Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $20,000 of your donations in 2019 to the Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas fundraiser, tripling each dollar you donate!
For our version of the quilt, we decided to go with the gorgeous quilt kit that has been put together by Fat Quarter Shop. It features the Little Snippets fabric collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics, a themed custom quilt label, plus three small spools of coordinating Aurifil 50wt thread. All beautifully packaged in a keepsake box.
Rather sew your stash? You can find the fabric requirements HERE and pull fabrics to make the quilt your own!
The first block in the quilt along is a classic Ohio Star in both a 12.5″ block size and four of the 6.5″ block size. It’s a breeze to stitch together and one of our favorite classic blocks! Hilary’s one tip when sewing the blocks is to pin carefully when nesting the seams & stitching your hourglass units, that way you’ll have nicely matched points in the center. 🙂
There is an amazing lineup of quilters who will be quilting along throughout the year, including several members of the Fat Quarter Shop team, Pat Sloan, Bonnie & Camille, and several amazing quilty bloggers!
