2024 Moonbeams Quilt Along – Release 4: Wishing Star & Friendship Star Blocks

We’re thrilled to unveil the next blocks in our 2024 Moonbeams Quilt Along! This month, we’re sewing some celestial magic with the Wishing Star and Friendship Star Blocks. These blocks will add a twinkling touch to your quilt. Be sure not to miss the Moonbeams Charity Cross Stitch release as well!


We’re thrilled to present our fourth pattern release, the Wishing Star & Friendship Star Blocks! You’ll need to make two of each for the quilt. We’re sewing with the Strawberry Lemonade collection designed by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. To make one just like ours, pick up the Moonbeams Quilt Kit. You can also download the fabric requirements to make this year’s charity quilt in your choice of fabrics. It’s never too late to join!

Our Moonbeams Quilt and Cross Stitch Pattern benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.

As we soar through our 11th 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. We encourage you to donate just $10 for the use of each free quilt pattern or a total of $50. For the cross stitch patterns, we are asking for a $20 donation. No amount is too small, and every bit counts. Fat Quarter Shop is proudly partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $30,000 in donations.

We’re getting closer to our goal of $100,000 for Make-a-Wish, and when we reach $50,000 in donations, one lucky donor will receive a 1-hour virtual visit with Kimberly Jolly!
