I encouraged you to join me in the Summer Moon Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop. If I didn’t tempt you then, I hope I can tempt you now. I\’ve made the May blocks, and they turned out as cute as buttons, if I do say so myself!
is a sampler quilt designed by Carrie Nelson and It’s Sew Emma (the pattern company of Fat Quarter Shop). The quilt is comprised of 24 blocks that are each made in three different sizes: 5”, 6 1/2” and 8” unfinished, for a total of 72 blocks. The book includes setting instructions for the small and medium blocks so that when the quilt is laid out for final assembly, all blocks are the same size.
In my last blog post, I explained that I will be sewing just three blocks a month (not nine) in the medium 6 1/2\” size. I will end up with a much smaller quilt top, but that\’s okay. I will still experience the fun of this quilt along, and I won\’t feel stressed out. I just have too many other projects on my sewing calendar.
For the month of May, we\’re asked to sew the Album, Churn Dash and Fool\’s Puzzle blocks. The blocks are fun and easy, thanks to the terrific instructions and illustrations in the book. Here are my individual blocks:
If you would like to join in, you just need to order the Summer Moon book
and figure out your fabrics. I\’m sewing from my stash of Lella Boutique and Corey Yoder fabrics. I\’ve included the fabric requirements at the end of this blog post.
