Welcome to the 2023 Bountiful Charity Quilt-Along Information Page! Here you will find general information on this annual charity quilt-along event, hosted by Kimberly Jolly and the Fat Quarter Shop. Over the past decade many participants have made and donated a specially designed fundraising quilt in order to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, myself included. I always love a good charity quilt-along because I think it’s especially meaningful to help others with my own hard work and skill. “Bountiful“ is definitely by far one of my favorites to participate in and I can’t wait to see how much my quilt ends up contributing!
The reason I decided to quilt along with this fundraiser is simple… I love kids! This yearly charitable event was designed with the sole purpose to benefit children in need. Make-A-Wish is a phenomenal organization for kids who need a little extra help facing adversity in life. This stellar group of people has been making wishes come true for children with life-threatening conditions and their families for over 40 years. Granted wishes give the kids and their loved ones much-needed joy, strength, and most importantly hope. Make-A-Wish has collectively granted more than 550,000 wishes around the world since it was founded in 1980. How awesome is that?!
This year’s quilt was designed by the beautiful and talented Corey Yoder. Her quilt, “Bountiful” is a bright and cheerful sampler quilt that features flowers, butterflies, and baskets. It will finish at 64″ square making it a nice throw sized or wall quilt.
Thank you so much to those of you who have already contributed by quilting-along and making donations. As of September 18th, 2023 the event has raised over $60,000 for Make-A-Wish. Though the quilt-along has already completed, you can still participate and help with this wonderful cause by downloading the FREE PDF patterns on the Fat Quarter Shop’s blog, The Jolly Jabber. Fat Quarter Shop encourages you to donate just $10 for the use of each free quilt pattern, or a total of $50. Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $30,000 of the donations raised! If you prefer, you can make monetary donation as an alternative. For official information and pattern downloads visit The Jolly Jabber by clicking the link below!
