Wishes Quilt Along: Idaho Beauty Block


Welcome back to the Wishes Quilt Along! This program benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you don't know about Make-A-Wish, they are an amazing organization that grants the wishes of children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. So far, you have helped us reach  80% of our $10,000 goal, 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 make these kids' wishes come true, all that we ask is that you donate for the use of each pattern. 

Today, we are debuting our tenth block, Idaho Beauty Block, which represents the bright stars of Idaho!


Are you ready to quilt along with us to make a difference to the kids of Make-A-Wish? 
Start by downloading the FREE Idaho Beauty Block

Once you have the pattern downloaded and your fabric cut, watch this video tutorial for a closer look at piecing the Idaho Beauty block. If you're ready to get started on your backing and binding, we have the PDF ready for download as well! 


After piecing this block, please head to our Wishes Quilt Along Make-A-Wish Donation Page to contribute to our cause. We are almost to our goal, and every donation counts!


Now, here's a sneak peek at our 2015 charity quilt-along, our Snapshots Quilt Along benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Our quilt uses Daysail by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics and we're offering kits and backing sets as well! 


Aren't you excited about our next quilt along? But don't forget that we'd love to see your photos of your Wishes quilt on our Wishes Quilt Along Flickr Group or on our Wishes Quilt Along Facebook Group. Tune in next month for our eleventh block, Stair Step!
