Wishes Quilt Along

 WISHES fabric collection is designed by the creative team at Sweetwater.
I am sure that when they were creating this fabric line that it would be the
 of Fat Quarter Shop's latest quilt along project
supporting the Make a Wish foundation.

This project is special to me because of my youngest brother. He was born with a rare birth defect, Arthogryposis, which is basically shortening of the muscle tissue.  He has very little muscle tissue around his elbow and knee joints.  His entire life he has know nothing other than full leg braces and the ordeal of being different. 
I did grow up seeing the struggles and blessings that families go through.
The help and support for families, especially children, whether  through Scottish Rite Crippled Children's Hospital (which is what brought my family to Dallas) or Make a Wish Foundation or any of the many great organizations is a perfect reason to quilt along.

So I decided this was a Quilt Along that I wanted to be a part of. 
 The blocks are 14" and easy to put together. Each month FQS also has a 
youtube video on how to make the block. Here is a link to block 1. 

Thankfully, my brother is a a feisty, happy and healthy man to this day.
