Announcing the Moonbeams Stitch Along

Our 2024 cross stitch pattern for Make-A-Wish is a dream come true! The Moonbeams Cross Stitch designed by Fat Quarter Shop explores an enchanting nightscape featuring nocturnal birds and blooms, just like the quilt. We invite you to stitch along with us from March to July, 2024, and can’t wait to start this stitch along with you soon!

The Moonbeams sample piece was stitched by Stitchy Staffer Denise and finished using Strawberry Lemonade fabric by Sherri & Chelsi and the Gray Wooden Primrose Cross Stitch Display.

Our Moonbeams Quilt and Cross Stitch Pattern benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas. As we fly closer to the start of our 5th Annual Charity Cross Stitch Along, we continue to be amazed by the generosity of this community of stitchers and inspired by the stories of the children who have been granted life-changing Wishes.

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

The fundraiser works by offering the Moonbeams cross stitch patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $20 each to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. No amount is too small, and every bit counts. From March to July, we will publish a new piece of the cross stitch pattern here on the blog on the first Friday of each month.
