Over the past few years, I’ve selected an Annual LGBTQ+ pride project to complete during Pride Month, which is June every year. Last year, I made the Love is Love Pillow and personally matched the total proceeds of pattern sales as a donation to The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25. Last year, we raised over $1000 for the organization and this year, I’m hoping to up the ante by promising to match up to $1500 of the total sales.
As soon as I saw this pattern, I knew that I had to partner with Sam Hunter of Hunter’s Design Studio and luckily she said yes because this is awesome!!! I recolored the pattern into a rainbow using Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Solids and woooooooooooow is all I can say. It’s like in my head it was gonna work, but then seeing it all sewn up I was like yes this is exquisite.
Well, you can make this bombtastic Rainbow Colorblock LOVE pattern with me. I asked Fat Quarter Shop if they could kit this version with the fabric and pattern since I knew they carried the Pure Solids and they totally did!!! So now there are multiple ways you can participate:
- Buy the full kit with fabric & pattern at Fat Quarter Shop (for now sign up to be notified when they are available to purchase)
- Buy just the pattern from Fat Quarter Shop
- Buy the pattern from Hunter’s Design Studio and use the coupon code misterd-and-hds-pride30 for 30% off through the end of June 2019
So how exactly does this help me raise money for the Trevor Project? So at the end of June, I’ll get a report from both Sam and FQS of the total sales and then I’ll match that amount as a donation to the Trevor Project, not to exceed $1500. And if enough folks decide to make this with me, I’ll do a sewalong with tips and tricks and fun and prizes, so let’s just say this is gonna happen and put that into the universe. I’ll have details on June 1st, but for now post all pictures on social using the hashtags #colorblocklovequilt #mdpride2019. So let’s have some fun stitching a rainbow of love, celebrating pride, and helping raise money for this amazing organization.
