Hey Y'all! I gotta tell you about a Fat Quarter Shop quilt along that you have to get involved in!! It's going to be a ton of fun, and you'll get the opportunity to help children, and follow along with some of your favorite quilters on social media! It's call the 2018 Clementine Quilt Along and it is benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Their mission is to save children by making their research and findings available to everyone AND by treating children at NO COST to the families, so they can focus on the one thing that matters – helping their children get better.
The Fat Quarter Shop is partnering with Moda Fabric once again, to bring you this beautiful quilt along to help benefit our community! Both Moda and The Fat Quarter Shop will match donations in the 2018 fundraiser - thats HUGE! The quilt block and finishing patterns will be available to download for FREE on the Clementine Quilt Along page on The Fat Quarter Shop blog the 25th of each month from January 2018 to July 2018.
We encourage you to donate $5 for the use of each FREE pattern.
Please click the link below to donate with St. Jude today.
I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful Mama's Cottage fabric line a few months ago while making the Banana Split Quilt Sample for The Fat Quarter Shop (pictured below), and I can tell you the fabric is absolutely fabulous! So if you got the Mama's Cottage kit for the Clementine Quilt, you will not be sorry! But, since I already have a beautiful quilt filled with all of these gorgeous colors....
I decided to switch things up a bit for my Clementine Quilt! I'm going to be using Voyage by Kate Spain for Moda Fabric for the quilt along, and I am super excited!! If you'd like to order, Voyage is also available through The Fat Quarter Shop, along with the Bella Solid Zen Grey that I picked for my background. www.fatquartershop.com/voyage-fat-quarter-bundle
Block #1 - Watermelon Wheel of the Clementine Quilt Along is finally here !! Isn't this Voyage fabric just dreamy?! The pattern is written so perfectly that you'll be done in no time, and begging for next month to get here!! The ladies behind the scenes at The Fat Quarter Shop are pattern gods, and I love working with them!!
Block #2 - Broken Berries will release Feb 25th!
Here are a couple WIP pics, can't wait to show you more...
I hope you will join in on the Quilt Along fun!!
