The 2019-2020 season of Fat Quarter Challenge (November 2019 – October 2020) has come to an end. This was my first time serving as Fat Quarter Challenge Coordinator. I thank all of you for being so generous and making my first year loads of fun! I will continue on as Fat Quarter Challenge Coordinator for another year.
Can you believe it? Our final total of quilts collected this year is …. drumroll, please …. 85 quilts! Isn’t that fantastic? That is 85 kids who are feeling the love and cuddles that they needed. YOU did that! And the kids are the winners. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
In September we received 12 quilts, all made by Deb W. of Michigan! Here they are. Some were duplicates so are only pictured once:
October brought our last quilt of the year’s challenge. It was made by Mandy W. of Minnesota:
Even though it’s only half a month, October gets to award a gift certificate to a lucky winner, just like all the other months. The October winner is: Linda L. of Louisiana. Linda gets a $25 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop. Have fun shopping, Linda!
Here is a picture of Linda’s quilt:
End of Year Winner
You may not know this, but at the end of each yearly FQC season we draw a winner who is given $100 cash! This year’s end of season winner is: … Deb W. of Michigan! She generously donated 27 quilts this year. Pictures of her most recent quilts are posted above.
I want to sincerely thank all of you who donated the 85 bright and cheerful quilts that the children will love. Some of the children experience enormous life challenges, and your gift of color and warmth lets them know that someone is thinking of them. Can you imagine what a difference that can make in a difficult time? Please continue to support Quilts Beyond Borders through your participation in the Fat Quarter Challenge. It’s fun, you might win something, and the children receive the best of all: your loving thoughts in the form of a beautiful quilt. What could be better?
Our next season begins in November 2020 and runs through next October. The rules and prizes are the same as this year. You can start sending your quilts right away!

P.S. Please try to make your quilts close to 60 inches long if you can. We accept a range of sizes, but approximately 60 inches long makes the quilts more shareable and able to get to their destination more quickly.
