We are proud to present the 2020 Bloom-Topia Stitch Along! While it’s our 7th year for our charity quilt, it’s our first year for a charity cross stitch! Join us in making this flower-filled pattern, an exclusive Fat Quarter Shop design inspired by our 2020 Bloom-Topia Charity Quilt.
Our Bloom-Topia Cross Stitch Chart and Quilt benefits Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.
Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $10,000 each in donations for this worthy cause.
If you’re new to our Charity Stitch Along, welcome! The way the fundraiser works is that we offer the Bloom-Topia patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $15 for the whole cross stitch pattern to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. We’ll start releasing the twelve patterns that make up this chart on February 1, 2020. Every two weeks, here on the blog we will publish a new part of the chart.
About the Pattern
This pretty little piece can be stitched up in any size cloth you prefer. The stitch count is 88w x 116h, which finishes around 7″ x 9.25″ on 25 count Lugana. Soft colors like cream or gray allow the elements to shine, and happy flower colors rule the day.
Cross Stitch Supplies
To make your cross stitch just like this one, you’ll need some floss and cloth. The colors you choose are up to you, but we’ve collected some items to get your stitching off to a good start. Download our complete Cross Stitch Supply List for all the details. We even created a Bloom-Topia Project Bag to hold all your supplies.
Cross Stitch Floss. We recommend the DMC Thread Pack or AuriFloss Thread Pack.
Cross Stitch Cloth. We used Pewter 25 Count Lugana.
Patterns will be available here on the Jolly Jabber starting February 1, 2020. Check back every two weeks for a new release.
