April Fat Quarter Challenge

Each year at the International Quilt Festival we give quilters the opportunity to participate in our Fat Quarter Challenge.   The participants sign-up to receive a fat quarter and a block pattern which they use as the basis to create a quilt for the needy children that are served by Quilts Beyond Borders.  The finished quilts roll in each month, and it is fun to see where they come from and occasionally we receive notes with them as I did this month from Marci Roberts of Idaho.  She writes, “I hope these are good enough, I’ve only been sewing a short time.”  They are wonderful Marci and so are the other quilts we have received.  The winner of this month’s drawing for a $25 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop is Marlene Glickman of Clearwater, FL.  Congratulations!

The FQ Challenge quilts below are from Pam Finnegan, Woodlands, TX; Marlene Glickman, Clearwater, FL and Carolyn Goodling, York, PA.

Thank you on behalf of the many children around the world who will enjoy them.
