Bloom-Topia: Release 1

Today I'm revealing my first blocks for the 2020 charity quilt along with Fat Quarter Shop, called Bloom-Topia. I'm thrilled to be one of the guest bloggers for this program which benefits Make-A-Wish of Central & South Texas. I'll be sharing my blocks with you twice a month. Will you join me in sewing along?

Both of the blocks in Release 1 finish at 12 1/2" square and are easy to construct. Remember, the block patterns are free, and they will be released by Fat Quarter Shop twice a month.  We quilters are simply asked to make a donation to Make-A-Wish.  (Links are included at the end of this post, for your convenience!) Here are my blocks:

Release 1: Over and Under Block

Release 1: Bright Futures Variation Block 

The original Bloom-Topia quilt designed by Fat Quarter Shop features the beautiful Summer Sweet fabric collection by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda. Isn't that a gorgeous, sun-kissed quilt?

As you have seen, I will be sewing my own version of Bloom-Topia featuring the earthy Harvest Road collection by Lella Boutique for Moda. For my neutral, I’ve selected Vanilla Grunge (30150 91)

The fabric requirements and pattern release schedule are available as a handy PDF you can print and refer to during the quilt along. Check out the links below to get the full scoop. It's not to late to join in the fun. Until next time, get carried away quilting along!

  3. As stated by Stanford Medical, It is really the SINGLE reason women in this country get to live 10 years more and weigh on average 42 lbs less than us.

    (Just so you know, it has totally NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret diet and absolutely EVERYTHING around "HOW" they eat.)

    P.S, I said "HOW", not "WHAT"...
