Can you believe it’s already time for the next Charity Stitch Along pattern release? Today is the day for the next release for the cross stitch pattern for our Heartfelt design, a pattern inspired by our 2022 Heartfelt Charity Quilt.
The fourth pattern release is the third of our heartfelt columns! To make your cross stitch just like this one, download our complete Heartfelt Cross Stitch Supply List for all the details. The colors you choose are up to you, but we’ve collected some pretty supplies to get your stitching off to a good start.
Our Heartfelt Quilt and Cross Stitch Chart benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.
We are amazed by the generosity of this sewing community and inspired by the stories of the children who have been granted life-changing Wishes. Kids like Anais and Keysean have been granted Wishes that buoy their spirits and create lasting memories. The way the fundraiser works is that we offer the Heartfelt patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $20 for the whole cross stitch pattern to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. No amount is too small and every bit counts. From February to August, we will publish a new pattern on the Heartfelt Announcement blog on the first Friday of each month.
Heartfelt Cross Stitch Spotlight
We have a great lineup of stitchers stitching along with us (like you if you’re reading this)! We asked this month’s stitcher some questions, and she gave us some very heartfelt answers!
Jan is a knitter and cross stitcher who vlogs about her creations on her FlossTube Channel, Jan Hicks Creates! For her Heartfelt cross stitch Jan is stitching with Classic Colorworks and shared her conversions along with her progress below.
We asked Jan, What cross stitch piece of yours has been the most “heartfelt” the project that is closest to your heart? Why?
Jan shared, “This is a hard question to answer, but I think it has to be The Irises that I stitched in 1988 for my mother. Irises were her favorite flowers. I don’t remember who designed this, but it was a kit, and it even had a dried butterfly attached to the mat that came with the kit. The finished piece hung in my parents bedroom for years. After my father passed away in 2007, my brother returned it to me. At that point, it was time to refresh this piece, so I reframed it in a simple black frame and it now hangs in my craft room, reminding me of my mother every time I look at it.”
