30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop and Sew Along Schedule

30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days
 is
coming in April!

It's like a month-long quilting party with friends and gifts.

I just finished all 30 blocks and put them in a quilt
to show how they look together.



This is the second one I've made with all the blocks.
The finished size with the 3" border is 56" x 66".



This adventure began last December 
and
we made 30 simple blocks with squares and rectangles.

Perfect for a beginning quilter and a nice fast project for anyone.


You can find the details of this quilt by clicking HERE.

The response was incredible and the request was made to choose another time to do it again,
so I invited a few All Star bloggers to join me this time.

They will be showing new quilt designs for each block.


30 days of designers 
showing new and different ways to use each of the
30 quilt blocks.

Keep in mind, these are super simple blocks but each one can make a beauty of a quilt.

You can quilt along too.


At the end of 30 days, we will have a quilt or quilts 
and hopefully a smaller scrap pile.

If you want to make each block, here are the 
fabric requirements:

To make all individual blocks as pictured in the tab above:  white - 2 1/8 yards
All other fabrics are scraps but if you want to use one color the yardage is 1 1/8 yard.
The quilt above has 3" white borders which would require about 3/4 yard more fabric.

This time,
I'll be using Tula Pink's brand new collection:
All Stars
to show each block.

I took a picture of the fat quarter bundle before I started cutting. 


Don't you love these fabrics?

Did I mention I have 2 fat quarter bundles?  
One for me and one for you.
Yep, I'll be giving away this bundle for the blog hop and sew along.

I've assembled an All-Star cast of bloggers to show how to use each block in a different way.
Some of them will have gifts to share too.

Want to get a head start?

All the links to the blocks are listed below with the designer and the day they will be our
All-Star.
