You can either use your own fabrics, or order a quilt kit from Fat Quarter Shop if you would like to make the same quilt as above, featuring Bonnie & Camille Basics fabric.
This quilt along benefits Make-A-Wish. This fantastic organization grants the wishes of children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Make-A-Wish believes a wish experience can be a game-changer. Granted wishes help children feel stronger, more energetic, and more willing to face their medical battle, and for many the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses! And this year, Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $20,000 of donations raised too!
The Patchwork quilt blocks are FREE to download on the 15th of every month on the Fat Quarter Shop blog, Jolly Jabber, starting today. We only ask a suggested donation of $5 to the Make-A-Wish campaign for each time you download a block pattern.
The first block pattern has just been released, and it's the 'Souvenir of Friendship' block - you can download the pattern here, and there is a video tutorial on Jolly Jabber also.
I've always wanted to make a pink, red, and grey quilt, and thought this would be just the thing for this quilt along. I will be using a mix of red and pink fabrics from my personal stash - though all of this month's prints come from the Little Ruby collection by Bonnie & Camille. The grey dot background print was from Ministry of Fabric.
I hope you like my blocks! You can also check out the quilts other guest bloggers are making by visiting their blogs, here's the full list:
