Birthday Quilt 2024 - Block 1

Updated: May 6

Happy New Year Everyone - I'm so looking forward to quilting with you 2024!

This year will be full of a lot of fun quilting projects that I can't wait to share with you.

To celebrate my birthday, we are having a surprise Mystery Block Quilt Along and I am planning to post here on our blog every week with at least 1 new 6" finished quilt block design!

I am sew thankful to all of you that want to join me on this Birthday Quilt Along.

The FUN starts NOW!

You can start making this quilt with the recommended bundles below or using scraps from your stash.

A Fat Quarter Bundle and Fat Eighth Bundle are great starting points.

This would be a perfect time to pull fabrics from your stash and mix and match with our bundles to make this quilt your very own.

Another great option, is your beautiful fabrics from our Laundry Basket Quilts Fabric Club stash!

I will be making my blocks using a Cocoa Blue Fat Quarter Bundle and the Birthday Bundle 2024 to create this Birthday quilt! There may be some sprinkles of a few favorites from my blue collections.

Our exclusive "Cocoa Blue" Thread Set would be perfect for this project!

This project is available for anyone to join in! It will be 55 blocks in 52 weeks. Every Tuesday we will be making a new block(s), so don't forget to Sign Up for our Newsletters and visit our blog each week to quilt along!

At the end of the year I will be providing a variety of layouts for your beautiful 6" blocks.

Let's get started!
