This is a banner that has a rose with a heart in the middle and reads: Heartfelt stitch along

Get your floss ready for the latest Heartfelt Charity Cross Stitch release! Today is the day to talk about finishing the cross stitch pattern for our Heartfelt design, a pattern inspired by our 2022 Heartfelt Charity Quilt.


If you’re just joining in, it’s not too late. You can find all the patterns in the announcement post. Download our complete Heartfelt Cross Stitch Supply List for all the details.

Our Heartfelt Charity Cross Stitch was finished by Priscilla Blain of Stitching with the Housewives on SKU# 2074417 from Hobby Lobby with Beautiful Day Tea Rose Gingham by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. You can finish your Heartfelt Charity Cross Stitch in many ways, and if you need some ideas, check out our How to Finish Cross Stitch videos.

The pattern might be finished up, but we aren’t done yet! Keep an eye out for our Heartfelt Charity Auction in September, when we will auction four beautiful Heartfelt quilts for Make-a-Wish!

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 $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.

Thanks to all of your support and generous donations we have been able to reach 95% of our fundraiser goal!

95K Heartfelt Charity Fundraiser Graphic

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!

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.

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