Announcing the Support Group Quilt and Stitch Along!

Support breast cancer survivors by donating and joining us in the Support Group Quilt and Cross Stitch Alongs. Lori Holt’s designs honor her mother, who survived breast cancer, with literal symbols of support, and we think they couldn’t be cuter! Read on to learn more about the charity we’re supporting and the details of the quilt and stitch along.

The Support Group Quilt finishes at 59.5″ x 66.5,” and we are sewing ours using Stitch by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs. If you want to sew a version like ours, you can grab the Support Group Quilt Kit, including the top and binding fabric. Don’t forget to grab the Support Group Backing Set, too!

The Support Group Cross Stitch by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet Co. is 88w x 113h measuring 7.125″ x 9.125″ when stitched on 25 count cloth! If you would like to stitch on a different size cloth, try using our free Cross Stitch Calculator to find the size you need.

Supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation

We are giving breast cancer awareness a strong push with the Support Group Stitch and Quilt Along. The Support Group cross stitch and quilt pattern by Lori Holt are a sweet nod to how good undergarments are like good friends – we show up during hard times to uplift and support each other! Take the plunge with us into this sew along to give breast cancer awareness the full coverage it needs. 

We encourage you to donate $15 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation by October 31. Fat Quarter Shop and designer Lori Holt will match up to $5,000 of the donations raised. Together, we can reach our goal of $20,000 to help women at every step of the breast cancer journey. Check out our donation page and keep an eye out for the auction coming after the quilt along wraps up.

  1. I’m planning to join in with this amazing Support Group QuiltAlong. I’ve already bought & downloaded the pattern, but would love to buy some of the other kits too. My BFF defeated breast cancer a few years ago and I would love to buy her the cross stitch kit, etc. Will these be available in the UK at all?
