Festival of Quilts 2015

Every year at the Festival of Quilts we set a challenge. How many blocks can our visitors make on a given theme? These blocks are then made into packs to give to our volunteers across the UK who make them into quilts for sick, disabled or disadvantaged children to provide cheer and comfort. Our theme this year is Homes and Gardens.

Houses, trees, flowers, gardens, beach huts, anything you’d like. Any style of patchwork or just squares of fabric. Blocks should be 12 1/2″ square and unquilted ready to be pieced together.

Download our PDF containing a simple house block (To view PDFs you’ll need to install a free copy of Adobe Reader).

For more patterns and inspiration take a look at our latest Pinterest board.

Bring them along to our stand at the NEC in August (6th-9th) or send them to:
FoQ Blocks, 18 Alison Road, Church Stretton, Shropshire SY6 7AT.

  2. Hi Hilary,
    Thanks for getting in touch. Quilts and blankets can be crocheted, knitted, fleece, or cotton.
    We accept quilts of all sizes including incubator covers, cot quilts, lap quilts, single bed quilts, and larger. If you make contact with your local coordinator they’ll be able to let you know if there are any specific requests or requirements for your local hospitals/hospices/shelters.
    Sarah
