When the stars align, it can only be Serendipity! We are proud to present the 2021 Serendipity Quilt Along! Join us as we go row-by-row in making this beautiful quilt featuring Spring Brook by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics!
Our Serendipity Quilt and Cross Stitch Chart benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.
As we embark on our 8th Annual Charity Quilt we continue to be amazed by the generosity of this sewing community and inspired by the stories of the children who have been granted life-changing Wishes. The way the fundraiser works is that we offer the Serendipity patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $5 each to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. Or feel free to make a larger, one-time donation of $50. No amount is too small and every bit counts. We’ll start releasing the seven patterns that make up this quilt on March 1, 2021. Every two weeks we will publish a new pattern on the Jolly Jabber Blog, or I will share links here too.
Here are some details from the Fat Quarter Shop:
To make a quilt just like this one, you’ll need the Serendipity Quilt Kit and Serendipity Specialty Pieced Backing Set, available only at Fat Quarter Shop.
Our exclusive quilt kit includes 11.5 yards of Spring Brook fabric designed by Corey Yoder and a background from Thatched, all from Moda Fabrics. This includes all fabric to complete the quilt blocks along with background, borders and binding for the Serendipity quilt. In addition to the fabric, this kit includes three specialty Foundation Paper Piecing Pads by It’s Sew Emma that will be happy helpers for tricky blocks. (You will be able to piece these blocks without the foundation paper using the included pattern instructions, we just really like how perfectly precise they make the blocks!) Bonus alert – the kit comes packaged in an exclusive keepsake box with magnetic closure.
A second bonus of purchasing this quilt kit is that you will have all the block and finishing patterns before they are released from March through July of 2021. The Serendipity printed pattern set will only be available early as part of this kit.
The quilt finishes at 64.5″ x 74.5″ and is suitable for confident beginners to experienced quilters. You can also use your own choice of fabrics by using our fabric requirements and checking back every two weeks to download the patterns as they are posted!
I was lucky enough to be able to do the long arm quilting on this one, and it's just breathtaking to see in person, y'all are going to love it! Here are some behind the seams pics I took...
Kimberly picked out a panto design called Floral and I used Glide 60 thread (color Cool Grey 3) and I love it because it sinks in and doesn't overpower the background color in the pattern.
I hope you'll join in, this is such a great cause. Lets all help the children.
Hey Y'all, I'm Gina Tell! I live on Lake Travis just North of Austin Texas. I'm a full time long arm quilter and lover of all this art and outdoors!!
