The Perfect 5 Sampler is a Fat Quarter Shop sew along using all 16 block patterns in the new book, Perfect 5 Quilts.
Another Sew Emma book sampler sew along. The instructions can be found on the blog each Wednesday.
Welp. I didn’t exactly keep up with the posting of individual blocks. Let’s just fast forward to the finished project.
It’s such a fun quilt. I enjoyed it so much I will make more for gifts. The picture blocks are awesome and were more simple than I realized.
The large block above is the Nutmeg Star Block. I’m not sure I like the two pieces of fabric on the sides to change the size of the block.
This little star is recurring theme from month to month of the BOM program. It’s a dainty little space filler.
Halloween Figs Quilt Sew Along is a 12 month block of the month program that began in July, 2019. The Halloween Figs fabric from Fig Tree & Co. designed by Joanna Figueroa and can be found at www.fatquartershop.com. It is beautiful fabric! The MOST beautiful fall/Halloween collection I have ever seen. The orange tones are a lighter burnt orange that is so pleasing.
This is such a pretty block. I never thought I would like the “basket” type blocks, but this is really nice.
The Simple Star block is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2″. It appears dainty.
Crisp and simple. Love it.
One of my favorite blocks EVER!!
There were a lot of little pieces to cut out and every one of them was a different size. BUT … the piecing was actually fun … like a puzzle.
This block was hard. Yep. Although I so very much wanted to press the seams open to make them less bulky, I took Carrie Nelson’s advice and pressed my seams to the dark side. I am so glad I did. As a result, they nestled very nicely and I was happy with how the points turned out.
Fairly simple. After completing the previous block, Birds in the Air, the points on this block can together so much easier. It’s actually a pretty little block and these colors are so sweet.
I’ve not really done quarter square triangles before. I like them. I made the segments a little larger and then cut them all to size before completing the 9 patch construction. My block came out the perfect size.
This block has a lot of pieces and parts, but I think it is worth it. It is a beautiful block. This block alone would make a nice quilt.
Simple little block. I like it.
