Hello and happy Saturday! Today is Patchwork Quilt Along day which means that I have new blocks to share! I’m using a variety of different reds and blues by Minick & Simpson and am using a different light/low-volume background each month. I’m really having fun with these blocks, and now that I have 24 of them finished it’s starting to be pretty exciting!
This month’s blocks (Star and Cross) took just a bit more time than the previous
ones because there are eight half-square triangles in each block. I actually cut my background and print squares for the hst’s just a bit bigger than called for so I could trim them down to just the right size using my half-square triangle method (⅛″ larger in each direction worked fine).
After finishing my blocks I can hardly wait to take pictures of them with the previous month’s blocks!
And then I pack them all away until it’s time to make the next set!
Get all of the details about the Fat Quarter Shop Patchwork Quilt Along here
(and download this month’s free pattern there too). You’ll also be able
to see the upcoming blocks on the site although those patterns aren’t
available yet! Then be sure to stop by all of the following blogs to see their versions of this month’s block (Instagram names are in parenthesis).
