You might recall when I shared the start of this Twinkle Toes Quilt, well today I am excited to share it all finished!!! And I have to say, this is my kind of paper piecing!!! I love being able to paper piece assembly line and really speed through the blocks. So fun!!!

So you might recall at the beginning of last month when I shared a Stack of Log Cabin Chain Blocks and said a tutorial was coming soon. Well I super appreciate your patience, and soon is now Today!!! I am so excited to share my newest quilt finish and a step by step tutorial for making your own in multiple size options!!! This is Stacked Squares and I just love it!!!
STEP 1 - CUTTINGThe Stacked Squares Block is 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" Unfinished and 11" x 11" Finished. You can choose to cut it out one block at a time if you are making for a Bee Quilt or just want to try a few blocks, or you can cut it all out at the beginning, which is the way I prefer to do it ;)
When it came time to quilt mine I decided on an all over Loose Feather. It is super fun and fast to quilt and I love all of the added curves and flow it gives to this super geometric quilt :)
Once your quilt is quilted, you are ready to bind. Cut the following number of 2 1/2"x Width of Fabric strips to create a binding and add it to the quilt. I used some scrappy binding leftovers which is also another option ;)
And now, just snuggle up with your Stacked Squares Quilt!!! I just love all of the wonderful Low Volume's fabrics and how they spin around the chain of prints!!! It is just so fun and I am already wanting to make a second Stacked Squares quilt in a larger size :)
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and find it easy to follow. If you make your own Stacked Squares Blocks or Quilts I would love to see them!! You can email me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org or add it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc #happyquiltingwithmc ;) I can't wait to see your Stacked Squares Blocks and Quilts!!!
Thanks for stopping in today to share this new quilt finish and tutorial with me. And thanks for popping in each and every day. I am just so grateful to have this space to share my love of quilting and it just wouldn't be the same without you all!!!
I hope you all have a Happy Quilting Day!!

It has been a bit of a wait, (issues with fabric supply) but I am super excited to get back on track with the Texas Monthly Block of the Month program! This BOM is hosted by Stitchin' Heaven and is so much fun!!! And we are moving on to Month 5 today :)
And just a reminder . . . if you want to join in any other Stitchin' Heaven Block of the Month programs, you can get your second month free with code "MELISSA1" There are so many amazing BOM programs to choose from and new ones are being added all the time ;) Like the new Stroll Quilt, that I already made here and can tell you it is so much fun!! Or the new My Favorite Color is Moda Quilt. My plans to start this are still a stack of fabric, hence a BOM is a great way to go :)
So let's get going with Month 5 and there are 3 blocks this month and we get to do regular piecing and a little paper piecing as well :) The blocks are all pretty basic and fast and fun to sew. So let's get piecing!!!
Wasn't Texas Monthly Month 5 just so fun!!! I know I sure liked it :)
If you have any questions on this tutorial, please don't hesitate to email me at email@example.com or leave a comment.
Hope y'all enjoy making this month's blocks!
Looking forward to Next Month!
