The Solidarity Quilt Block Project launched in April of 2020 and once again, we were shown just how generous and giving the quilting community is. Our quilt designers created 80 blocks, which they shared with you to sew beautiful creations of your own. In the end, we received over 800 blocks from our community! We were thrilled to see your creativity and how you chose to make the blocks your own, and they all came together in some gorgeous final quilts.
What happened to the blocks?
The blocks were made into small quilts intended for hospitals that were most affected by the pandemic. To complete this task, we entrusted the blocks to the Chattahoochee Evening Stars Quilt Guild in Georgia.
Eight members of the guild volunteered:
- Vicki Evaristo
- Ben and Kathleen Hollingsworth
- Korri Iracondo
- Laura Kimball
- Leigh Ann Kloefkorn
- Barbara Means
- Debbie Scarimbolo
They did an amazing job and had the kindness to send us some wonderful photos! We thank them wholeheartedly for their willingness to give their time to make these quilts, and we’re excited to share the results with you here.

We wish to share a huge thank you to our dear partners for making this project possible. Art Gallery Fabrics supplied the backing fabric, Hobbs provided the batting and Wonderfil provided the thread, all the necessary elements to complete these quilts! They are now ready to distribute beautiful smiles, and we are so thrilled with the outcome of this project.
