At Fat Quarter Shop, we believe giving back is important. So when the team at ByAnnie asked us to join them in raising awareness for breast cancer screening, we jumped at the chance. We’re excited to join in this year’s #SewPink Initiative Blog Hop!
Fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Update on November 4, 2022: We are incredibly excited to announce that through our fundraising efforts for NBCF with ByAnnie’s SewPink initiative, Lori Holt’s Support Group, and Gina Tell’s quilt auction, we have raised $23,208!
We’re inviting you to join us in raising funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which provides early detection, education, and support services. No amount is too small, and every bit makes a difference. Now through Monday, October 31, 2022, we encourage you to donate. 100% of donations go directly to NBCF. Together, we can reach our goal of $20,000 to help women at every step of the breast cancer journey. Fat Quarter Shop and designer Lori Holt will match up to $5,000 of the donations raised. Check out our donation page and keep an eye out a special quilt auction coming up at the end of the month.
Support Group Quilt and Stitch Along
During October, we invite you to sew along with us in the Support Group Stitch and Quilt Along. The Support Group cross stitch and quilt patterns 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!
The quilt pattern, designed by Lori Holt, finishes at 59.5″ x 66.5″, and the Support Group Cross Stitch, also designed by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet Co., is the perfect companion to the quilt. Find all the detail in the Support Group Quilt & Stitch Along Kick Off blog.
Free Healing Hearts Quilt Pattern
Today we’re sharing a free quilt pattern with you. The Healing Hearts Quilt Pattern has chains of hearts to represent the care and support we hope to bring to those who are affected by breast cancer. Last year, we showed how to make a cute pillow from this pattern, which you can find on the blog.

Share with #SewPINK
The #SewPink Initiative was created by ByAnnie.com LLC to raise awareness for breast cancer throughout the year. Our efforts culminate in an annual blog hop during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month to promote self-care, awareness, early detection, and support for those affected by breast cancer.
To learn more and see the calendar of events, visit: https://www.ByAnnie.com/SewPINK
Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women, and unfortunately, many of us know someone or have ourselves been affected by this disease. The good news is we can do something about it because breast cancer is detectable with monthly breast self-exams and mammograms.

In addition to participating in #SewPINK, Fat Quarter Shop invites you to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation with the goal of raising $20,000. To find the Fat Quarter Shop fundraiser, visit: https://fundraise.nbcf.org/team/fqs
