Welcome to the first month of Fat Quarter Shop‘s Charity Quilt Along for 2017, the Patchwork Quilt Along! This quiltalong is supporting the amazing nonprofit, Make a Wish Foundation, and if you’ve never heard of them, their mission is to grant wishes to kids with terminal or chronic illness.  Once in a lifetime trips, room makeovers, meetings with celebrities, you get the idea.  I’m so excited to once again be a guest blogger for them, and for such a great cause!  Camille Roskelly and Bonnie Olaveson designed this quilt, and I’m going to be using their newly released line, Basics, for this quilt.

The patterns will be released on the 15th of each month, and they’re free!  Fat Quarter Shop simply hopes that you make a small donation for each pattern downloaded – even $5 helps tremendously!

January’s block is the called the Souvenir of Friendship, and you can download it HERE.

Please consider donating even $5 for this free pattern.  To do so, you can donate HERE.
