Fat Quarter Cubes Quilt

Spring has finally sprung here in Utah, which means brisk mornings that turn into beautiful afternoons and evenings. This fresh Fat Quarter Cubes quilt it perfect for the changing of seasons. The low volume squares resemble the blossoming trees throughout our neighborhood.

When I was asked by Fat Quarter Shop to participate in this quilt along, I knew immediately that I wanted to use Modern Backgrounds Color Box by Zen Chic for my quilt. I had my eye set on this bundle before it was released, and I have to's every bit as wonderful as it appear in the pictures.

We all know that everyone needs a pattern that they can fall back on when a quilt is needed in a hurry. Fat Quarter Cubes is just the ticket. The big 18" blocks go together so quickly that your quilt top will be done before you know it!

Hop on over to Fat Quarter Shop's post to see more Fat Quarter Cubes quilts by other makers. You'll also find a video tutorial showing how quick and easy this quilt truly is.

Clementine Quilt Along :: Coconut Cross

One of the things that I love about quilting is the way in which you take several different units, sew them together, and you get a beautiful block. This month's Clementine Quilt Along Coconut Cross block is a prime example.

For each section of the block you use two square-in-a-square units, two flying geese, and four half-square triangles. Don't you just love the look of the four blocks pieced together in alternate directions? The look is so creative and unique.

Are you participating in this fun quilt along with Fat Quarter Shop? It's been so fun creating a new block each month. And the fact that your participation and donations benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital makes this quilt along that much more meaningful.
