Patchwork Quilt Along - Propeller Block

It's the 15th and that means it's time for the seventh set of  Patchwork Quilt Along Blocks hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop!!!!  Wow, I am getting quite the stack of Patchwork Blocks, so fun!!!   Today's Patchwork Quilt Along blocks are the Propeller Blocks and I just think they are so awesome!!!  

Son't they look like they are just ready to take off.   Propeller was the perfect name for these fun blocks that combine a basic nine patch and some fun HST's.  And since these have some 2" finished units, they go together a little quicker than some of the other blocks we have made.  I really had a lot of fun making these blocks and am excited to add them to the Patchwork Pile!!

So if you are quilting along you can download the block pattern right here and then you can pop on over to donate $5.00 to the Make a Wish Foundation for your download  ;)  The $10,000 Goal has been reached which is so exciting, now everything from here on out is icing on the cake!!!

And don't forget to check out the super cute  You Tube video that walks you through making the block (pressing is key on this one!!!)  and you even get to listen to some super peppy tunes along the way!!!    

And be sure to share all of your Patchwork progress on social media with #patchworkquiltalong and pop over to all of the fabulous bloggers who are quilting along for some Propeller Block eye candy :)    I just love seeing all of the different fabrics everyone is using!!!

  1. I love these little blocks! They are even cute enough to use just by themselves. How big are the finished blocks and the finished quilt? Thanks Melissa.

  2. Love the block, but love the fact the monetary goal has been surpassed!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
