Hello and happy Friday! Today the Fat Quarter Shop Bloomtopia Quilt Along Release 1 pattern PDF is available. The pattern is available, and you can also watch our You Tube video with instructions for these blocks. Chelsi and I traveled to the Fat Quarter Shop Studios in early December to film these block construction videos and had a lot of fun with them. This week’s pattern release is actually for two blocks that Chelsi will be walking you through in the video.
Bloomtopia Quilt Along Release 1
This week’s pattern release PDF gives you the instructions for making two blocks. Both blocks are a lot of fun and use a great mix of our Summer Sweet fabrics. If you’re sewing along with your own fabrics, these blocks also give you lots of possibilities for fabric placement.
Tips for Block Construction
You can find all of Chelsi’s tips for making the blocks as you watch the block construction video here. I think this was one of the first videos we filmed on our trip, so we might both seem a little camera-shy!
Over and Under Block
The first block pattern in this week’s pattern release is the eye-catching Over and Under Block. This one was so much fun to make and is simple to make as well.
The Bright Futures Variation Block
The other block pattern in this week’s pattern release is the Bright Futures Variation Block. This block combines half-square triangles with simple square to create a fun design. You can use this triangle paper to make sewing the half-square triangles go quickly.
