Let’s Get Ready for Moonbeams!

We’re almost ready to start our 11th Annual Charity Quilt Along, Moonbeams! Our 2024 quilt for Make-A-Wish is a dream come true with its enchanting nightscape featuring nocturnal birds and blooms. It’s nearly time to start, so let’s gather our supplies and get ready!

To make a quilt just like this one, pick up the Moonbeams Quilt Kit and Moonbeams Pieced Backing Set, available only at Fat Quarter Shop. The Moonbeams quilt is 68.5″ x 80.5″ and is best for intermediate to experienced quilters. The kit comes with all the block and finishing patterns in an exclusive keepsake box with magnetic closure.

Our Moonbeams Quilt and Cross Stitch Pattern benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas. As we spread our wings to set off into 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. From March to September, we will publish a new pattern here on the blog on the first Friday of each month.

A companion cross stitch design is back again this year as part of the Moonbeams Stitch Along. This enchanting cross stitch design is overflowing with beautiful birds and evening stars that match the 2024 Moonbeams Charity Quilt.
