From Quilt Market with Love: The Story of Our Charity Quilt

Hey makers!

I just wanted to tell you how grateful we are to have you in our lives. We strongly believe that the sewing community is so amazing because sewists are generous and love to work together. This is why when we were planning our booth layout for Spring Quilt Market in St. Louis, Missouri, we had the strong urge to plan an activity for the attendees that visited our booth. We thought “why not make a quilt at Quilt Market?” and that’s what happened!

The blocks featured AGF Denim, Fusions, and our Lower the Volume Capsules

We set up a booth where attendees could sew a block that would be part of a quilt we were going to donate to a charity. To make things even more fun, we invited Mister Domestic to be the sewing master at the booth where he kept everyone motivated. It was great to see everyone laugh and share tons of sewing stories!

Once the quilt top was complete we brought it back to the AGF HQ where we added the backing, binding, and quilted it. For the donation we decided to pair up with our friends at Stash Builder Box since they’re all about quilting for a good cause. This wonky log cabin quilt was sent off with the rest of their Heart Builders quilts that were going to Camp Hobe; a summer camp for terminally ill children. We are grateful for everyone who participated! I hope that everyone that took part in this quilt loves how it turned out and that the child who receives this quilt knows that he/she will be wrapped with love!
