Birthday Quilt 2024 - Block 25

Sometimes the smallest block, feels like a little gift when you can use up all your scraps with it! This is how I feel about a Square in a Square.


Welcome back to our Quilt Along in celebration of my birthday this year.

We are posting here on our blog every week with 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.

If you haven't gotten your supplies yet, don't worry, you have plenty of time to jump in!



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.


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 with our next block!
