2022 Heartfelt Quilt Along – Release 8: Backing

Welcome back to the Heartfelt Charity Quilt Along! We’re on to the backing portion of Heartfelt as we wrap things up. We are so excited that we’ve all made it this far. Are you ready to finish up our quilts together?

This pattern release is the Heartfelt Quilt Backing! 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.

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.

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!

  1. What a wonderful video! I have made many mistakes, but you have shown me that it is easy for professionals to do too. Thank you, for sharing this – without any editing – we all need to know sometimes we are not perfect – but can fix or change things to make everything okay.
