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!

We have a limited supply of kits and backings available to reserve. Or use whatever fabric you prefer! Download the Fabric Requirement PDF to get started!

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...

That's wonderful! I love the top and the whole idea.

Fat Quarter Shop said...

Hi Rubyslipperz! Please email chelsey@fatquartershop.com and we will send you code to put on your blog!

Tammy said...

Can't wait to start in January!! What a fantastic charity to support.

secondhandrose said...

I have bookmarked the page and hope to join in the fun and donate to this worthy charity.

Susan Lunt said...

Looking forward to it!

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!

The Patchsmith said...

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

secondhandrose said...

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

Becky Thompson said...

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!!

What a Beautiful Quilt!!
I am Super Excited to Sew-Along with y'all, this year!
Kind and Thoughtful of you, FQ Shop & Moda for your generous contribution to Make-A-Wish Foundation.
I love that we all will be reminded to donate when we jump on your site for our next Block!
Making Donations Fun is always a Great Idea!

Thank you~

If I want to donate my quilt to the Make a Wish Foundation, where do I send it?

I just finished block 4 & love the process. I am finding that my blocks, when starched & steam pressed, are puckering along the seam lines. Any idea why that might be happening and what I can do to avoid it? Could it be related to the thread? (I've been using Aurifil.) Thanks very much.

Nice online shopping blog thank you for sharing this important info about online shopping

Pamcakes said...

I am getting started late in the game. I wasn't able to get a fat quarter bundle but have been collecting them as I go. My question is: What is the Background, Sashing, Inner & Outer border fabric? All I see is "5538-16" and that is not available in your shop. How am I able to find out what it is so that I may purchase to start on my blocks?
Thank you!!

Just found this wonderful QAL. I'm going to make it for my sister-in-law (sshhhh don't tell her) who is the COO of Make-A-Wish in MI. It will be her Christmas gift 2015 (since the last of the blocks won't be released in time for 2014 holiday giving). It's always hard to find the perfect gift for her and this couldn't be more perfect! Thanks!

Brigitte said...

Helen Soares said...

Can anyone tell how to download August, September, October, November and December's blocks. I've gone to where the download is but there is no download available for those 5. I was sent a text and went where she said but to no avail. Helen

Millie Rondon said...

Thank you so much for posting this quilt along. In appreciation for your generosity, I've supported your endeavor by making a donation to the Make a Wish Fdn. Although I had purchased the fabric for this quilt months ago, it wasn't until last week that I got started (too many other projects going including volunteering my longarm services to QOV). Well, I not only got all 7 blocks done but I went ahead and prepared the other borders while I was at it (thanks for posting those in advance). I would have provided a picture of my work but don't know how to do that here. Anyway, this quilt is now on hold till August! Millie

Sally M said...

@Helen Soares. This is a quilt along and I think you have to wait until that month to be able to download the patterns. Cute patterns and great way to give to charity!

I just found this QAL. I'm too late to purchase the fabric because it is sold out.
Can you recommend substitute fabrics from Moda?

Congratulations!! I've just visited the donation page and find that the goal you set has been exceeded. What a great cause to support!! I've enjoyed sewing along. Thanks to the FQS for the inspiration.
