2022 Heartfelt Quilt Along – Release 7: Finishing

Welcome back to the Heartfelt Charity Quilt Along! We’re on to the finishing portion of Heartfelt. We are so excited that we’ve all made it this far. Are you ready to put your quilt together?


The seventh pattern release is the Heartfelt Quilt Finishing! We are sold out of the Heartfelt Quilt Kit and Backing Set, but we still have the collection in stock. We’re sewing with the Beautiful Day collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. If you’re just joining in, you can find all the patterns and fabric requirements on the announcement post.

Our Heartfelt Quilt and Cross Stitch Chart benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.

The way the fundraiser works is that we offer the Heartfelt patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $5 each to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. Or feel free to make a larger, one-time donation of $50. No amount is too small and every bit counts.

At this time, Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas has matched six kids with Fat Quarter Shop to receive Wishes. These six kids will receive their special wishes thanks to donors like you. Kids like Lily, a 9-year old girl diagnosed with Leukemia, will get to visit Disney World, where she hopes to meet Elsa and Ariel. Michael, a Dallas Cowboys fan, wishes to meet football player Dak Prescott! We can’t wait to see this 12-year old boy receive his Wish. This special meeting will be a bright spot amidst a cancer diagnosis.

Thanks to all of your support and generous donations we have been able to reach 95% of our fundraiser goal! With your help, we can reach our goal of $100,000 in donations towards Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! When you donate today, you’ll get us closer to our goal of granting ten wishes, and closer to releasing our fourth and final finishing pattern.

Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $30,000 in donations for this worthy cause. 

Since 2014, the charity quilt alongs by Fat Quarter Shop and our community have helped raise $650,000 and granted a total of 110 wishes!
