It's the Final Day of the 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop and Quilt Along! Giveaway Winner too.

Today is the final day of
30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days.

It's hard to believe we are finishing today.  It makes me sad to see this blog hop end.

It's been so much fun.

Every day in April there has been one super simple quilt block tutorial for the quilt along here
and 
one designer showing a project with that block on their blog
and the bloggers have been incredible!


For 30 days bloggers
have shown new and different ways to use each of the
30 quilt blocks.


Today is my day to show a project using today's quilt block
but first, here is the block.

Block 30 - Slow Tee

Size Unfinished: 10 1/2" x 10 1/2"
Finished Size: 10" x 10"


Cut 6 rectangles 4 1/4" x 3" - 4 green / 2 white
Cut 2 rectangles 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" - white
Cut 4 squares 1 3/4" - 2 white / 2 green


Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.
Stitch the center squares together first, then sew the white 4 1/4" x 3" rectangles to the middle unit.  Stitch the green outer rectangles to the large white rectangles and lastly, 
stitch the three rows of units together.


When put together, these blocks make a great quilt.


Since it's my day in the blog hop, I made another layout with 30 blocks but this time I turned every other block. No matching seams that way.   I also used different Tula Pink All Stars collection fabrics.


I used 3" unfinished borders and made the quilt top.


The wind was blowing so hard that the fence was the only place I could take a picture.

I think this will be a perfect graduation present for my niece.
The finished size is 55" x 65".

We've been through all of the 30 quilt blocks.



Have you been quilting along?

Here is my "30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days" finished quilt.


The quilt was made with all 30 blocks in the order in columns and then 3" borders were added.



This quilt was made with the same blocks moved around a little and a different pieced border.
The fabrics were all scrappy stash fabrics. 
The details on this quilt can be found by clicking HERE.

THANK YOU
to all the bloggers
who inspired us with all the projects
and
practically ran this blog hop without me.

You are ALL STARS!!!
