Quilting for a Cause Week 5

We’re almost there! We are ready to make our another beautiful block of the National Quilters Circle Quilting for a Cause Quilt Block Challenge! How are your blocks going? We still have a couple of weeks of framing and finishing, so don’t lose steam quite yet!

For this challenge we are working on a unique pattern designed by our managing editor, Ashley Hough, specially made for donation to Project Linus. The finished size of the quilt will be 48’’ x 60’’ and a finished block will be 6’’.

This week we will be making 4 blocks with fabrics 1, 2, 3 & 4. Please, read over all instructions before beginning on your block. Click the button below to download a PDF with instructions for your second block. And make sure to share your progress in the Quilt Block Challenge Facebook Group – keep sharing, we love seeing your work!

    Theda Farmer, one of the great things about quilting is that fabric doesn’t go off, so however long it takes, you’ll have a lovely quilt to give to somebody who needs one.

    This looks like a wonderful challenge. I’m planning on catching up while my quilting group is on its holiday hiatus.

    I’d love to make this quilt. I am the group leader of a Quilt of Valor. I’ll make it patriot

    Looks to me like we need 8 blocks, not 4 as specified in the pattern. Am I correct?

      You can actually make either. The instructions call for four blocks, and the finished quilt photo that I posted shows the layout with four blocks, however we have had a handful of people make eight blocks and put them in place of the “blank” squares.

      Hope this helps!
