Time for another block for the Patchwork Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop! February's block is called Diamond Panes. (Find the free block pattern here)
Instead of making one block at a time, I like to cut the fabric for all six blocks and then make them assembly line style. First off, I made and trimmed all of the tiny little half square triangles. Not my favorite thing, but then once they were done, it was a breeze to piece the rest of the blocks together.
Have you started quilting along? You can still buy kits here from the Fat Quarter Shop, as well as make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation here. You don't have to use a kit - you can use whatever fabrics you choose! Or dig in to your scraps!
Still have questions? There's more info here, and a Facebook Group filled with other quilters just like you who are joining in. It's fun to see what fabrics others choose and how it changes up the look of the blocks!
You can also read more on these blogs - all of these quilters will be joining in all year long!
