Threadology QAL - Ohio Star Blocks

It's February 1st and that means it is the start of the Threadology Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop!!!!  Today I am so excited to share the first set of  blocks!!!  These first set of blocks are Ohio Star blocks and they are just so much fun to piece!!!!  Look at all of those fun points and I just love making classic quilt blocks ;)



So on the 1st and the 15th of of each month for the next 4 months, there will be a new Threadology Block released.  And was you can see, the blocks are in two sizes.   A larger 12" block that is great to piece and goes together in a snap.  And the second is a super cute 6" block that is wonderful for building technique of piecing with smaller sizes :)   They are both just so fun to make!!! 


So are you joining in the Threadology fun???  If so, you can download the block pattern right here and it is requested for each pattern you download to donate $5.00  to the Make a Wish Foundation :)  This is Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity QAL that is raising funds for an amazing organization.  What a wonderful way for us all to make a difference !!   And Fat Quarter Shop and Moda will match up to $20,000 of the donations raised.  So let's help them reach that goal ;)  


This year it is all about Fat Quarters for this Quilt Along and after some playing around in my stash, I decided to use a collection of Bonnie and Camille fabrics that I have stashed for a while now.  And the Original quilt kits are all sold out, but of course, you can use any fabrics.   If you haven't gotten them yet, you can find the Fabric Requirements here ;) 


And as soon as you go to start making your blocks, you will see that I am changing things up a bit. If you remember from this post  I am planning to donate this quilt to the Festival of Trees so I wanted to do a more universal layout ;)   I am super excited to see all this patchwork goodness come together!!!


And speaking of making your blocks . . .  like always, Fat Quarter Shop has made awesome  You Tube video tutorials that walk you through making each month's blocks.  There are some great helpful hints and you can see it put together step by step!!!   






Be sure to share all of your Threadology progress on social media with #threadologyquiltalong and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Block 1 for lots more Ohio Star Block Inspiration!!!


And that's it for the first block in the Threadology Quilt Along!!!!   I will continue to share a new set of blocks on the 15th and 1st of each month.  So fun!!!  So what do you say, wan't to come Threadology Quilting Along??  You are going to have so much fun!!!

Thanks for popping in today ;)  Have a Happy Quilting Day!!

  1. Just checking...for your layout how many of each block are you making? From the pics above, it looks like 3 big blocks and 6 small ones. Will it be the same for each of the blocks released?

  2. What a lovely idea Melissa! Thinking outside of the box - and giving others another perspective to the pattern. I was wondering about the 'extra' blocks - this will be great! I'm always 'downsizing' to a tinier baby size quilt - which also helps to keep the math alive in my head :)! Looking forward to your progress with this quilt!

  4. I would really love to win these two beautiful charm packs. I have made a few valentine mug rugs lately and would love to add to my valentine fabrics. They really speak to me.
