This year we were able to complete eight quilts with all of the blocks we received. We had a total of 166 quilters from 23 states and four countries contributing blocks.

The 2018 charity quilts will be on display in our booth in Pasadena (#606). After the show, they will be lovingly donated to children in need through Quilts for Cure. We'll also post pictures on our social media pages during the show so be sure to follow along!

Here are the finished quilts! Comment if you see your block or if you'd like to talk about your experience making a block for the charity quilts.










A special thanks to HollyAnne Knight, Lily De La Cruz, Vicki Holloway, Jen Greer, Kristen Esser and the London, ON Quilt Guilt!

What a wonderful (and easy) thing to do! Everyone can make one block and many hands make light work! Way to go Michael Miller Fabric!

I'm looking forward to seeing these quilts in your booth, as well as helping to make blocks for future charity quilts for such a great cause. They are so cheerful and comfy looking I'm sure they will bring much needed quilty hugs to whomever receives them. I'll also happily help with PR.

Cool! I will definitely stop by and check it out. Also want to participate with this next contribution. SO healthy for us all to work through this nation's current anxieties with helping others.

I found my blocks. This was fun and easy. I won't be at quiltcon, but am glad I buy fabric on my own
