Wishes Quilt Along: Annie's Choice Block

Welcome back to the Wishes Quilt Along! This program benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and we are so thankful for all of your donations thus far! We have raised almost 25% of our goal and we are so happy with our progress. Join in this quilt along and help us make a difference! Today we are excited to introduce the third block in the program, Annie's Choice!

 
Are you ready to get started? Start by downloading the FREE Double Windmill PDF Pattern.


Once you have the pattern downloaded and your fabric cut, watch this video tutorial for a closer look at piecing the Annie's Choice block. If you have never used triangle paper for piecing, you will definitely want to watch this video to see how it is done. We use 4" finished Half Square Triangle Paper to make our half-square triangles, a method that we love! Have you ever tried it?



After piecing this block, please head to our Wishes Quilt Along Make-A-Wish Donation Page to contribute to our cause. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which will be matched by Moda Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop for a grand total of $20,000. Every dollar helps, so please contribute whatever you can! We encourage you to donate after downloading each free pattern.


If you want to make a quilt just like ours, we have kits available using the Wishes collection by Sweetwater. Or download the Fabric Requirement PDF and choose your very favorite fabrics.


We hope you enjoy sewing the Annie's Choice block and pick up some tips for piecing half-square triangles along the way. Post your photos and see what everyone else is sewing on the Wishes Quilt Along Flickr Group.  Stop by next month for the debut of the Broken Dishes block!
