This upcoming event has all the makings of a great Quilt Along!

* The opportunity to help others by quilting and doing something fun each month? CHECK!
 
We’ll also have some of our favorite quilty bloggers sewing along with us, showing you their progress along the way. We love seeing the quilts made with both the kit fabric and with the other fabrics quilters sometimes choose, don’t you?! The Patchwork Quilt Along is going to be great fun!

Our Patchwork 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!
