It’s the 15th of the month and that means a new block released by the Fat Quarter Shop for their 2017 Patchwork Quilt Along project! This project offers free quilt block patterns every month with a suggested donation to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation. So far it has been super successful in raising a lot of money for this awesome cause!
The July block is this Propeller block. You can find the link to the downloadable pattern here. With May and June so crazy and on the road, I needed to catch up on those blocks as well.
This is the May block, called Homestead. You can find the pattern + video tutorial here. (Each month, in addition to the downloadable pattern, there is also a video tutorial with helpful tips.)
This is the June block – Round the Corner. You can find the pattern here. (I made a little rebellious change on this one. 😉 )
And now, all caught up with July’s Propeller block.
Here are all of my 42 blocks together so far. The blocks are only 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ unfinished – they’re really cute! And I love how they play together. I used the Bonnie and Camille kit from the Fat Quarter Shop, but I’m also adding some prints from my stash to personalize it.
I’m really proud of them! I don’t usually piece blocks this small, and definitely not this many of them. I love how breaking up the blocks into a few each month (or a few extra when you’re playing catch-up) makes the project so doable. I’m excited to put them all together at the end of the year.
