Bella Skill Builder…Block 1

Today starts the beginning of an awesome quilt along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop!

Bella Skill Builder

I am super pumped to make this quilt. It will be a 10 month process, with a new block posted the 1st of the month for 9 months and then a finishing post for the last month.

Some months you will make multiples…. just in case you were like….HEY? There is more than 10 blocks in there!

Oh…. and did I mention it’s a FREE PATTERN! Happy face:)

Here is an up close look at this gorgeous quilt…..

Bella Skill Builder

This quilt will finish at 66.5 x 83.5

We will be working with Bella Solids….. hence the name, Bella Skill Builder.

Fat Quarter Shop has a Quilt Kit, Backing Set, and a Thread Set for this quilt.

You will make three blocks with this pattern.

Tips for this block…

•be precise with cutting, mistakes add up!

•fabric is on bias so kinda stretchy, use pins and don’t over press and stretch these out!

Creative Grids Spider Web Ruler #CGRKA6

Creative Grids 6 1/2” Quilting Square Ruler #CGR6

Creative Grids 12 1/2” Quilting Square Ruler #CGR12

NO WORRIES….

Layer Cake Pop Quilt Along and giveaway!

Hey there Sassy’s!

Fat Quarter Shop is sharing a fun and FREE PATTERN today as part of a quilt along!

Fat Quarter Shop

Layer Cake Pop

 

 Get Quilt Kit HERE

They did their quilt kit in Spectrum by V and Co.

Such a fun fabric line!

Here is my version of this quilt….

I just love these little stars that this pattern makes! Cute.

I used a Cotton and Steel layer cake and made my own jelly roll out of a cream dot background fabric. The cream color worked really well with this line.

It was a fun pattern and a great way to use up some of those layer cakes we have piling up!!!!

Wanna see all the differnt versions of this quilt?….. and a chance to win the Fat Quarter Shop GIVEAWAY?

No Bake Jolly Bar Quilt – Easy and Free Pattern!

No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop!

jollybar1

Hey there guys! Today I am a stop on the No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop hosted by Fat Quarter Shop.

Fat Quarter Shop has a fun, fast and fabulous FREE quilt pattern to share with you…

They call it the No Bake Jolly Bar….

Here is the FREE PATTERN!

For my quilt I used a white layer cake and two jolly bars in “the Boat house” by Sweetwater for MODA fabrics.

In case you don’t know what a jolly bar is…..it is basically a layer cake cut in half, 5″ x 10″ rectangles. Super fun and easy for making a quilt.

Let me tell you…. this quilt came together lickety-split! One day I made all the blocks and the next I put them all together. This is a nice size quilt too… It finishes at 63.5″ x 81.5″, so it will make a nice size quilt to use as a gift for Christmas. Can’t wait to get it quilted up!
