Wishes Quilt Along: Susannah Block

Welcome to the Wishes Quilt Along! We have finally hit the halfway mark of our Wishes Quilt Along journey... the Susannah block! This program benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and we are so thankful for all of your donations thus far!

You have helped us reach 50% of our $10,000 goal so far, and we know we can push it all the way to 100% with your help. We and Moda Fabrics will be matching up to $10,000 of your contributions, for a grand total of $20,000!

Join us as we quilt along to make a difference to the the kids of Make-A-Wish. Today is the sixth block in the program, the Susannah!

Are you ready to get started? Start by downloading the FREE Susannah Block pattern!

We encourage you to donate after downloading each free pattern. Once you have the pattern downloaded and your fabric cut, watch this video tutorial for a closer look at piecing the Susannah block.

After piecing this block, please head to our Wishes Quilt Along Make-A-Wish Donation Page to contribute to our cause. And, if you have a personal experience with Make-A-Wish and your family that you’d like to share, please let us know! We’d love to feature your story. You can contact us at

BIG NEWS!! Due to your requests, we’ll be posting the finishing and backing videos and patterns in July, so you can work on these as we finish the last few blocks together!”

Post your photos and see what everyone else is sewing on the Wishes Quilt Along Flickr Group or on the Wishes Quilt Along Facebook Group. Tune in next month for our seventh block, the Court House Lawn block!

Really love the colors for this block and it looks something I would really like to try.
