Birthday Quilt 2024 - Block 4

Updated: May 6

I hope everyone is doing well out there. Don't forget to take care of yourself during these busy days, especially after the craziness that sometimes comes with holidays and traveling.

I hope you are smiling today wherever you are!

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.

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 other 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!
