American Quilter’s SAL-Block 2

Introduction & Mission Video

But first….Did you remember to send us a donation?  I am going to pester you all everytime until we reach the goal of $25K….We really really really…want to raise a bunch of money for Hogs for Heros!!!!  WE are off to a wonderful start!!

Here are a few that have come in!

20$ from Kristin- Houston TX- This donation is on behalf of my favorite veteran, my father, Ron. Even though he didn’t agree with the ideals of the Vietnam War, his love and commitment to our country was unwavering and so he served. He has instilled that commitment to patriotism in me through countless small moments every day of my life.

25$ Patricia- Maumelle, AR Honoring all veterans, my husband, my father and my uncles cousins and my husband’s mother and father for their military service. Thank you.

“If everyone donates a little there is no need for anyone to donate a lot!”  Thank YOU so much to those of you who have already donated!

Hogs for Heroes- Please Help!

If you know me, you know I am a little adventurous …so when Hogs for Heroes crossed my path knew I had to do something to contribute!  Something a little unconventional, for a quilter…I know the obvious thing to do would have been to make a quilt…but I dream a little bigger than the average stitcher….let’s make a quilt and raise some money and buy a Harley Davidison motorcycle, which will change one deserving vet’s life forever!

The result….This American Quilter’s Stitch Along is a fundraiser for Hogs for Heroes…Please read all about them HERE.  We are hoping you can find it in your heart to donate something to this awesome cause….We want to raise enough money through Primitive Gatherings and it’s American Quilters to fund our own HOG for a deserving vet.

an American Quilter and hopefully it will be credited toward our campaign..

If you bought your FQ bundle from Primitive Gatherings we have already donated $10 for each FQ bundle…and rounded it up to $6000 in our Hogs for Heroes account!  For those of you who have purchased your FQ bundle from other shops, we hope you wish to donate as well using one of the methods above

Form your own group at your local quilt shop and start stitching together….together you all can make a donation as a group…share your progress with us while you gather together while making this fun quilt.  Fat Quarter Shop has graciously donated $750!!! So Awesome!

Send us a check and tell us who you are honoring with your donation, a son/daughter, a brother/sister, a dad/mother, grandfather/grandmother a friend..we will read/post your letter/pictures on one of our social media platforms!  I really look forward to this and hope some of you take this opportunity to talk about your favorite Vet!

Let’s help them recover any way that looks!

Sew let the fun begin and show me your blocks!   Please….Lisa

    Thank you for the email reminder about hogs for hero’s donations. I was just telling my son about since he rides. I couldn’t remember how to donate.

    Thank you.

    I came to the party late. I need block 1 of the flag quilt. I am not finding but probably overlooking it. I have block 2 printed.

    Lisa, if I buy an American Gatherings FQ bundle now does $10 get donated to Hogs for Heroes? Or is that opportunity over?

    Hi! I bought the fat quarter stack but after reading the last post, I want to make another donation. What a great cause! Btw, am I the only one who can’t download Block 2?
