I’m really excited to announce the 100 Quilts for Kids Quilt Along (QA)! I wanted to design a quilt that was simple, could use up scraps if you wanted, and was fun to make. (It is based on a quilt I made in 2010
). Bonus–you don’t have to think very hard while piecing the (foundation pieced) blocks, so it is the perfect project for a Modern Quilt Guild
sewing day or to work on while kids are running around or while watching your favorite movie.
There are 2 size and multiple layout options for the QA quilt! (variations below)
Baby Quilt Stats: 40” x 48”, four or eight 12” string blocks
Throw Quilt Stats: 66” x 80”, four or eight 20” string blocks
Quilt Along posts will be on Thursdays–quilt at your own pace and have fun! Charity quilts are a perfect time to try something new–color palette, piecing method, quilting design, etc.
Thursday, September 6: Finishing the quilt
Thursday, September 20: QA Linky Party
Vickey of Gingersnaps Fabric Boutique
on Etsy contacted me about doing a giveaway. Since this QA is jelly roll friendly, she is offering 2 Riley Blake jelly rolls to 2 different readers, in hopes that you make a charity quilt with them. I think Apple of My Eye and Fox Trails would make great quilts! Thanks, Gingersnap Fabrics!
Please leave a comment for a chance to win– 2 winners will be drawn! If you would like to add the 100 Quilts button or the Quilt Along button to your blog, or tweet/IG/FB about either event, please add another comment. I’d love your help getting the word out!
Note: Winners drawn 7/18:
Thanks for the giveaway. I’ve been a string block machine for charity quilts for Guild and I’d love to have more premade strings. Thanks.
I am so glad that I found your blog! I am so excited about this giveaway, and your 100 quilts for kids! I have been wanting to donate a quilt (not sure where to go here in Tucson, AZ) and I have been hesitant for time, $, and quality (I am still new to quilting). I will totally follow you and maybe gain the confidence to do it!
Make a quilt or 2. Donate it to a child in need, locally if you can.
Spread the word to family and friends! Enjoy a blog hop with inspiration and mini prizes.
