Fat Quarter Shop Block of the Month benefitting St. Jude's Research Hospital

The start of the year brings a variety of opportunities to participate in fun Block of the Month and Sew Alongs with different designers and brands.  At the end of December, I created a 2018 Block of the Month collection of different programs you might wish to consider for your sewing pleasure!

One of the Quilt Along options was the Fat Quarter Shop Clementine Quilt Along.

Kimberly and the Fat Quarter Shop Gang are hosting another charity BOM to benefit St. Jude's Children Hospital in 2018. Clementine is a beautiful quilt and the cause is very worthwhile! Find out more by visiting The Jolly Jabber.
Our Clementine Quilt Along benefits the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help advance cures and means of prevention for catastrophic pediatric diseases. Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $20,000 of donations for this awesome cause. And, on top of that, we will auction our Clementine Quilt Along quilt at the end of the program, and 100% of the auction proceeds will go to our St. Jude campaign. So please DONATE today!

The First Block was released yesterday and I just could not wait to make it!

This stack of Micheal Miller beauty has been waiting for years to become a quilt. It was given to me one Christmas from my best friend because she KNOWS that I love blue and white quilts ( I really really do!)

I had been waiting for the perfect quilt to come along and this is it!

I pieced my block using Aurifiil 50wt thread.


I printed up the pattern and hit it hard this morning.  I worked, walked the dog and then it was SEW TIME!

This morning was a race against time since the kids had early release from school ( because that hve not had enough days off for snow!).

Thank goodness, I finished just in time to take a quick photo and then pick up the kids in time.


 
 I hope you will join in for this wonderful Quilt Along!
