Bloom-Topia Quilt Along - Release 8

Today is the Eighth Block Release of the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop and I am super excited :)   This block is so super fun to make and I love the adjustments I added to it.  Really makes it pop in the middle!!!  So let's get to it.  



So for Block 13,  (which is actually Block 12)  were adding some Stitch and Flip corners to the center and adding HST's to the corners and then adding some sashing to the whole block.   So to make the block from the Background Fabric you will not need A, or E.  You will need C (cut in half on the diagonal) and D.  For B, I used (8) 4" x 4" squares as I did not have Triangles on a Roll.   And finally, cut (2) 1 1/2" x 18 1/2" rectangles and (2) 1 1/2" x 20 1/2" rectangles for sashing.    From the Print Fabrics you will need 2 F squares, 4 G rectangles.  Then add (4) 4" squares for the Stitch and Flip centers.   And again, no Triangles on a Roll, so I replaced H with (8) 4" x 4" Print squares.  Sew it up just like the pattern calls for, only add the extra step of doing a Stitch and Flip Corner on the F Pieces :)  When the Block is sewn up, add the sashing.  


So are you joining in the Bloom-Topia fun???  If so, you can download the block pattern  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 wow, so much has been raised!!! 


And just as a reminder, if you are new to finding the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along, this is the layout I will be making and are the alterations referred to above ;)     I am using a Breeze Fat Quarter Bundle by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics with Gris Grunge as the background!!! And there are still a few Bloom-topia Quilt Kits and Backing Sets available if you want to make your's like the original ;) 


And like always, Fat Quarter Shop has made an awesome  You Tube video tutorial that walk you through making the blocks.  There are some great helpful hints and you can see it put together step by step!!!
