Wishes Quilt Along

Follow along with us on our Wishes Quilt Along and watch our introduction video for more information on the program!


Join the Wishes Quilt Along and sew 12 sampler blocks with us in 2014! Be sure to post photos to the Wishes Quilt Along Flickr Group.

The Wishes Quilt Along will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Donate to the Wishes Quilt Along Donation Page for the use of each free pattern. Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $10,000 of donations raised. And to top it off, we will auction off our Wishes Quilt Along Quilt at the end of the program, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Make-A-Wish!

I'm really excited to find out about this quilt along! I'd like to feature it on my blog as I'm working on it. I will start in January... =)

I have some ideas/plans to help get more donations for my local chapter here in Utah.

Thanks for all work that is being put behind this Block of the Month.

Will there be a button (with link) to the website for this wonderful quilt along?

Or maybe it's here? And I missed it...

thanks,
annie =)

This QAL is close to my heart, my oldest granddaughter is a recipient of the Make A Wish in South Texas. She is in remission from Leukemia and has been for 2 years now. I look forward to doing the QAL!

Count me in. Such a good cause and we get to make a lovely quilt in the process.

I'm trying to donate via the Australian affiliate but every time I put in my credit card details and submit it says I must select where I want my donation to go. Can you help?

Jayne Honnold said...

Made my block yesterday and have posted it on my blog today. If anyone is curious, go to Jayne's Quilting Room! Here's the URL: http://jaynesquiltingroom.blogspot.com

Thanks for doing this Kimberly. It's so great to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause and make a beautiful quilt along the way!

okko said...

This is very nice QAL. I'm interested in this idea

ksstoudt said...

Kimberly... you mentioned a couple of things in the video. A Design Board....Alphabitties and an iron called Opisew iTouch? Where do you get these? Are they available at Fat quarter Shop?

Lara Girgis said...

Hi there! It won't let me donate via Australia so I've donated $30 directly to the Australian site. Maybe this can be fixed? Thanks... we're getting cracking tomorrow night a little group of us! :)

Tabatha said...

Is there a paper pieced version of it?? I think that would make it more doable for me. tHanks!

Harriet said...

Can I use 1/4 yard instead of a fat quarters?

Becky said...

Just getting started in this whole quilting thing so I just wanted to see what exactly I needed to do this. Can a get a fat quarter bundle of fabric that has enough to cover this or would it be safer to get 1/2 yards of fabric?

berylthepearl said...

I would love to join along, such a cute quilt. I am assuming we donate the quilt we make, is that right? Thanks!

Waiting for 'April Shower' to start my quilt-along! Should be a lot of fun to make!

I am very new to quilting and have only used the precut fabric before. Can you give some basic tips on how to cut out fabric so that you don't waste too much, and yet have clean crisp accurate blocks to put together.

Starting this quilt and need to know: Is a Layer cake (42- 10 inch squares) enough fabric for the squares? I have a layer cake that I'd love to use, but how can I know if it's enough fabric? Thanks!

Sharon mcQuade said...

Just seen this pattern. Fabulous idea. and great pattern. Our son had a wish through make a wish in Australia in 1995

Amy said...

I do wish you'd post the finishing pattern before December so we could cut the border pieces and piece the border sections as something to do during the year between blocks. Christmas is such a hectic time of year and I'd love to get a head start so I can get it finished once the last block is done without having a heroic effort during the holidays. Please consider releasing it early!!
