I am so super excited!!! It's been announced!!! The 2022 Fat Quarter Shop Charity Quilt Along is Heart Felt and it is absolutely gorgeous :) This will be my 8 Year participating and I have just loved being a part of such an amazing Quilt Along that benefits such an amazing cause!!! (2015 Snapshots, 2016 Crossroads, 2017 Patchwork, 2018 Clementine, 2019 Threadology, 2020 Bloomtopia, 2021 Serendipity) It is just so incredible to have so much good to be tied up into one quilt ;) This Charity Quilt Along benefits Make a Wish, and there were some wonderful Wishes granted from this Quilt Along last year, isn't that just amazing!!!!

Heartfelt Charity Quilt Along for 2022 - It's Coming!!!!
And along with Making Wishes come True . . . you also get to sew a beautiful Heart Felt quilt!!!! I can't wait to get started on this!!! I just love stitching hearts and Fat Quarter Shop has designed 6 different Heart Blocks that have come together to make this stunner of a quilt!! I especially love that they made some hearts in stars, because you all know, I just love piecing Star blocks as well :)
The Heart Felt Quilt Along block piecing starts on February 4th, 2022 and a new block will be released the first Friday of each month. Fat Quarter Shop will be releasing the Fabric Requirements on January 14th, but the cool thing is . . .we can get them even earlier!! The Make A Wish Campaign has already begun, and as soon as it reaches $20,000 . . . Fat Quarter Shop will release the Fabric Requirements!!! (So help spread the word so we can all get a jump start ;)
The Heart Felt Quilt features Beautiful Day Fabrics by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. (And I have already worked with these fabrics for some secret sewing and let me tell you, they are gorgeous!!!) Beautiful Day Fabrics release in December, but you can reserve an exclusive Heart Felt Quilt Kit and Backing Set now, (And isn't that quilt back just so fun!!!!) The Heart Felt Quilt Kit comes with all the fabrics you need for the blocks, background and binding and it even comes in a Bonus Keepsake Box with Magnetic Closure. And one other bonus . . . The Kit comes with all of the patterns so you don't have to wait each month for them to be released, and yes, it's the only place to get them early ;)
Choosing fabrics is always so fun, and I am super excited to be using Flirt by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics for my Heart Felt Quilt!! I love that the hearts in the line will just go perfectly with the hearts in the piecing :) And I want all of those beautiful low volume prints to stand out, so I am planning on using a Graphite Cross Weave for my background!!! I just love a colored background and the Cross Weave will also add an awesome texture too :) I did a little mock-up . . . it isn't the exact design as I was just whipping it up fast, but it really gives the idea of what it will look like and I just love it!!!

I can't wait for some Happy Charity Quilting in 2022!!!!
