Threadology Quilt Along - Quilt Top!!!

So I went out of town this weekend, and didn't even realize that it was over the 1st of June which means . . . The Threadology Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop!!!!   And since all of the blocks are done now, it is time to sew those quilt tops together!!  How fun is that ;)    And of course, I totally forgot to take a picture of my quilt top before I put it on the long arm, so you get a few finished pics today as well!!! 


And if you recall, I choose to do a different setting then the original Threadology design ;)   I used 3 Large Blocks of each of the 8 block designs (24 of the 12" blocks)  and 6 small blocks of each of the 8 block designs (48 of the 6" blocks).   Which of course meant I was sewing more blocks, but they turned out so cute in this layout!!!    Isn't it just so fun!!!  


And I am sure some of you might ask, so here is the basic layout of my altered Threadology QAL finish :)   Simply sew two small blocks together, and then add a large block to the side of the two small blocks to make the new Giant Block.   I just sewed random blocks together to make the Giant Blocks.   Then layout 6 Giant Blocks per column and make 4 columns, alternating the big and small blocks.  Sew it all up into a 72" x 72" finished quilt top ;)   So fun and fast!!!


And if you are quilting along with the Threadology fun you can download the original  quilt top pattern right here and it is requested for each pattern you download to donate $5.00  to the Make a Wish Foundation :)   Or if you have been making extra blocks, you can finish your quilt top like mine :)  Oh, and super exciting news!!!!  And I am super excited to say that  Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity QAL has reached it's stretch goal of  $20,000 that Fat Quarter Shop and Moda will match.  But of course, you can still help Make a Wisth ;)     How awesome is that!!!   And since the stretch goals were reached,  it came a few extra finishing patterns that you can check out at Fat Quarter Shop's blog, they are so fun!!!   


And while making your putting your quilt top together, you can check out the   You Tube video tutorial that walk you through the process of making your quilt top and Kimberly shares some awesome and helpful hints  :)




Be sure to share all of your Threadology progress on social media with #threadologyquiltalong and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Quilt Top Finishes!!!!    There is so much Threadology inspiration and goodness!!! 

And that's it for the Threadology Quilt Along today!!!!  I will be back on June 15th with more of the actual finish and a special suprise ;)      And if you didn't have time to quilt along, the Threadology Quilting Along patterns will always be available.   Just for future reference :)
