A New Quilt Along

Hello and happy Thursday! Today is the official launch day for this year's Fat Quarter Shop charity quilt along, the Clementine quilt along!  I had so much fun making two different blocks this month.  You will actually be making the same block in two different sizes!

I'm mixing a few different fabric collections for my version of this quilt...all by

Corey Yoder.  The quilt will primarily be made with her latest collection, Flower Mill, but I'm adding in bits and pieces from my stash from a couple of her earlier design groups.

I loved this fun little block, and the directions make it so easy to put together (think strip sets and the opportunity for a lot of chain-piecing)!  I'm mixing tone on tone backgrounds along with a solid Bella 9900-98.

I made my smaller block first and then made the bigger one.  The small block finishes at 12" x 12", and the large block finishes at 20" x 20".

You can get all of the details for sewing along including the download for the fabric requirements and the download for the January blocks by visiting the Fat Quarter Shop Clementine Landing page here

This quilt along benefits the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital; Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $20,000 of donations for this great cause.  On top of that, Fat Quarter Shop will be auctioning their quilt at the end of the quilt along with 100% of the proceeds going to the St. Jude campaign.  You can visit the landing page link above to make an individual donation and to find out more. can go here to purchase a quilt kit and/or backing set for the Fat Quarter Shop version of this quilt!

Cute block I love that you choose different fabrics.
I'm tempted but first I need to finish some other things.

Stephanie @Quilt'n Party said...

I love the fabrics that you have chosen for your blocks. So soothing!

Jan @Cocoa Quilts said...

Your fabric choices are perfect! Can't wait to see how they all come together.

I participated in 2016 and have the quilt top done and still hanging on the back door of my sewing room waiting to be quilted! I didn't participate in 2017, but I really like this quilt and I think I just made the decision to participate! We donate to St. Jude's every month as do my daughters. My middle daughter even toured the facility when she was driving cross country. A neighbor's son was treated and sadly passed away at age 4. We are big supporters of St. Jude's!
