Wishes Quilt Along: Mrs. Taft's Choice Block

Welcome back to the Wishes Quilt Along! This program benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and we are so thankful for all of your donations thus far! Today, we are debuting our eighth block, Mrs. Taft's Choice block! This block was named after Helen Herron Taft, wife of former U.S. president, Howard Taft.

You have helped us reach 60% 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! Your donations help kids to have their wish come true!
