The ‘Dreaming in Fabric mystery QAL’ starts today!Shannon from Fabrics N Quilts and I are hosting this fun scrappy mystery together! Join us the 15th of July, August and September for unique scrap quilt block tutorials. We are partnering to bring you this QAL as part of the 5th Annual Scrap Quilt Challenge!
I hope you’re as excited as I am to get started! At the end of this three month period we’ll have shared with you blocks and inspiration to create not one, not two, not even three, but countless quilt tops that are all your own! And all of this by just sharing 6 blocks!
If you want to use the same color scheme as me – check out THIS POST to read about what fabrics you need.
I’m revealing to you my block – the Cortland Quarter Star. (I have designed these blocks myself and they need a name. Of course … my blocks will all be named after apples.)
And here it is – the Cortland Quarter Star! It may look a little daunting … and I’ll admit there are quite a few pieces … but I promise you that if you break it down like I do in my tutorial you’ll have fabulous blocks in no time! I also promise you that this block just screams, “USE SCRAPS!”. So listen – and use your scraps up! The more fabrics … the cooler this quilt is going to look when it’s all said and done!
To make your very own ‘Cortland Quarter Star’ you can download a FREE PDF by clicking HERE.
Regardless of how you want to put together the blocks in your final quilt … I would recommend making four of the ‘Cortland Quarter Star Block.’.
This is how my four blocks will be oriented in my final quilt layout.
But this option also looks cool.
Make sure you head over to Shannon of Fabric N Quilts blog to see what her mystery block looks like!
Above are a few examples of layout looks that can be achieved by mixing our two blocks together. The possibilities are endless!
We want to see your blocks when they’re all pieced together. Just link up to the linky below so we can all see what you’re coming up with!
