Announcing the Heartfelt Quilt Along

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart! We are proud to present the 2022 Heartfelt Quilt Along!  Join us as we go row-by-row in making this heartwarming quilt designed by Corey Yoder, featuring her fabric collection Beautiful Day, designed for Moda Fabrics!

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

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

As we embark on our 9th Annual Charity Quilt we continue to be amazed by the generosity of this sewing community and inspired by the stories of the children who have been granted life-changing Wishes. 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. From February to September, we will publish a new pattern here on the blog on the 1st Friday of each month.

To make a quilt just like this one, you’ll need the Heartfelt Quilt Kit and Heartfelt Specialty Pieced Backing Set, available only at Fat Quarter Shop.

Our exclusive quilt kit includes 13.5 yards of Beautiful Day fabric designed by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. This includes all fabric to complete the quilt blocks along with background, borders, and binding for the Heartfelt quilt.

A second bonus of purchasing this quilt kit is that you will have all the block and finishing patterns before they are released. The Heartfelt printed pattern set will only be available early as part of this kit.

The Heartfelt Project Bag is perfect for storing all of your Heartfelt Blocks and patterns!

Some helpful notions to use with the Heartfelt Quilt would be Doug Leko’s Simple Folded Corners Ruler (there are LOTS of corners to cut in this quilt haha), and the Heartfelt Project Bag for all of your quilt blocks!

Our exclusive Heartfelt Specialty Pieced Backing Set includes 10.33 yards of Beautiful Day fabric and the pieced backing pattern.

If you’d like to make your quilt like ours using the Beautiful Day fabric collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics, we have Quilt Kits and Backing Sets available. If you’re sewing with something different, download the fabric requirements to make this year’s charity quilt.

Bonus Finishing Patterns for Heartfelt

For each milestone goal, we hit with our fundraiser, we will release extra finishing patterns you can use with the blocks. At $40,000, $60,000, $80,000, and $100,000 we will celebrate with a new free pattern release!
