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
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.

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

You are ALL STARS!!!

Oh, Carla! Thank you for hosting this blog. It has been so much fun. I am grateful to have been able to participate! And I am so excited to have won the fat quarter bundle! Thank you so much! All I can say is wow! I love Tula Pink fabric!! Our LQS doesn't carry it, so this will be the start of my Tula Pink stash. Online quilt stores will help me add to her line!

It's been fun, and I'm so glad I was able to keep up each day.

Thanks, Carla for this blog hop! I used scraps, was going to follow the RSC color selections, but then wanted to go ahead and make a block every day. My colors and blocks are not in the order you placed them, I followed the rainbow colors from your first quilt, but then the blocks were mixed up. I think it will be alright. When I get it pieced into a flimsy, I'll post it on the facebook page. It was so fun and so easy thus far!

First the comment on your contribution for day 30. It was wonderful and your niece will love it. Your quilts for all 30 blocks rock.
Now for running the whole show, 3 cheers for you. Great event from beginning to end. Thank you.

Brenda said...

Hello Carla; Thank you for such a fun Blog Hop where we all learned at least 30 new quilt blocks that are so fantastic! Yet, in so many instances, each day we were shown 2 ways to use the blocks and create 2 different quilt projects which is always a bonus. Have a great day!

Carol S. said...

Carla this has been such fun and so inspirational! Thank you for your time in creating these simple blocks and encouraging us to get creative. Loved it!

Needled Mom said...

I love what you did with this pattern and the 30 blocks together look just fantastic.

It was such a fun hop and it was great checking it out each day to see what the day's block was going to be. Thank you for hosting it and congratulations to Brenda.
