Isn't it beautiful? This quilt was design by Sherri @A Quilting Life
I am so excited to play along! I'll be using this yummy bundle of solids in several shades of blue plus a few extra colors for some interest.
The Bella Basics QAL introduces nine blocks, some based on standard blocks (like the HST) and others which are more unique. There are several blocks that I am really looking forward to which I've never made before. The most exciting are the orange peels and pineapple blocks! (How can you go wrong with blocks named after foods?)
Loving my February blocks!
The template worked just fine. I taped it to a ruler, aligning one edge of the template to one edge of the ruler. Once the pieces for the larger block was cut out, I trimmed the template and cut out the pieces for the smaller block.
I used colors sea (138) and teak (129) for this months blocks.
Fat Quarter Shop has a kit available for this project as well!
