Our 2024 quilt for Make-A-Wish is a dream come true! The Moonbeams quilt designed by Fat Quarter Shop explores an enchanting nightscape featuring nocturnal birds and blooms. We invite you to sew along with us from March to September, and can’t wait to start this quilt along with you next year!
Our Moonbeams Quilt and Cross Stitch Pattern benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas. As we fly closer to our 11th Annual Charity Quilt Along, 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 fundraiser works by offering the Moonbeams patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $10 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 March to September, we will publish a new block pattern here on the blog on the first Friday of each month.
Our exclusive quilt kit includes everything you need for your quilt top including Strawberry Lemonade fabric designed by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics, packaged in an exclusive keepsake box with magnetic closure. The Moonbeams quilt is 68.5″ x 80.5″ and is best for intermediate to experienced quilters.
A bonus of purchasing this quilt kit is that you will have all the block and finishing patterns before they are released online. The Moonbeams printed pattern set will only be available early as part of this kit.
If you’re planning on sewing with something different, download the fabric requirements once they’re available to make this year’s charity quilt. We will share the fabric requirements and cross stitch supply list when we reach our first fundraising milestone of $20,000.
