Bonnie & Camille Basics. Wonderful little 5″ blocks. QuiltAlong. All done for the benefit of the Make A Wish Foundation.
As they’ve done for several years, the folks at the Fat Quarter Shop have designed a quilt for the sole purpose of benefitting a charity centered on children. The quilt uses a Moda Designer collection and the blocks to the quilt are provided as free downloads with the request that you consider making a donation to the named charity. This year, the charity is Make A Wish, an extraordinary foundation that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.
It is an organization that has special significance to Bonnie Olaveson and Camille Roskelley because of Olivia, Bonnie’s granddaughter and Camille’s niece. After a rough battle with brain cancer, Olivia is thriving.
This year, the goal is $20,000 in donations – a sum that the Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match.

Yes, you’re allowed to mix things up a little bit.
To help us kick this off, we’re giving away a kit for the Bonnie & Camille Basics Patchwork Quilt. Just leave a comment by Midnight on Wednesday – January 18th – telling us the name of your best quilting friend.
The block is “Souvenir of Friendship” so that seems like a good place to start.
