Shannon Fabrics Supports the Hopes & Dreams Quilt Challenge for ALS

Hello everyone! It’s Jayme, Shannon Fabrics Brand Ambassador — aka “Finding Sweet Land” in the quilting community. I finished another project — it’s a pretty minky strip quilt, similar to ones we make to help support the Quilters Dream Hopes and Dreams Quilt Challenge for ALS. If you aren’t already familiar, this program helps raise awareness of ALS-Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and provides quilts to ALS patients while raising funds for the cause. We couldn’t be more honored to be part of such a great cause!

Speaking of quilts, here at Shannon Fabrics we love Quilters Dream Batting. In fact, almost all the quilts created by Shannon Fabrics Brand Ambassadors are made with Quilters Dream Batting. We especially love the Quilters Dream Puff and Quilters Dream Angel since they are both light and lofty, and don’t add extra weight. They are easy to work with, soft, warm and they make our quilts especially fluffy! We also like Quilters Dream Request Dream Poly, since it’s a bit thinner and doesn’t add extra bulk. We made this cute minky quilt with Quilters Dream Request Dream Poly, which has their thinnest loft.

    This quilt was made using the sew and flip technique, and we used these fabrics:

    We are so thrilled with how it turned out! To read more about the quilt (and how to make it yourself), click here.
