Bloom-Topia Quilt Along - Release 11 - Quilt Top!!!

It's July 1st and I am so excited for today!!!  I have been waiting for it for a long time!!!  Today is the 11th release of the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop and we are putting the quilt top together!!!!!   So, so, so excited :)   

Obviously, my layout is very different from the original.   So for my version of the Quilt Top here is what you need to Cut :

Print Fabrics:
          (176) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Squares - Label A
          (4) 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" Squares - Label B
          (4) 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" Rectangles - Label C

Background Fabrics:
          (20) 2 1/2" x 12 1/2" Rectangles - Label D
          (2) 2 1/2" x 20 1/2" Rectangles - Label E
          (3) 2 1/2" x 42 1/2" Rectangles - Label F
   Cut (24) 2 1/2" x WOF Strips - Sew the Strips End to End - Cut the Following Pieces from the Strip
          (2) 2 1/2" x 46 1/2" Rectangles - Label G
          (2) 2 1/2" x 54 1/2" Rectangles - Label H
          (2) 2 1/2" x 58 1/2" Rectangles - Label I
          (2) 2 1/2" x 82 1/2" Rectangles - Label J
          (2) 2 1/2" x 86 1/2" Rectangles - Label K
          (2) 2 1/2" x 90 1/2" Rectangles - Label L
          (2) 2 1/2" x 94 1/2" Rectangles - Label M

Sew the Quilt Top Together according to the below Diagram.  Start from the center 4 Blocks and work outward adding Borders.  Add the Side Borders first and then Top and Bottom Borders.

And that is all there is to it!!!  Isn't that just so fun!!!!

So are you joining in the Bloom-Topia fun???  If so, you can download the quilt layout 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. And it has been such a huge success this year!!!!

And just as a reminder, if you are new to finding the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along, this layout I made is different from the Original.  There are links at the end of this post for all of the alterations on blocks ;)     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 yours like the original ;) 

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

Be sure to share all of your Bloom-Topia progress on social media with #bloomtopiaquiltalong and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Release 11 for lots more Bloomtopia Inspiration!!!  I can't wait to see all of your quilt tops!!!! 

And that's it for the eleventh release in the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along!!!!   Now it is just time to sew up this Bloom-Topia Quilt !!  

And just to make it easy to find . . . Here is a list of all the places to find my alterations

Thanks for popping in today ;)  I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!

Pin It!


  1. I just love your version of the Bloomtopia quilt. Beautiful!

  2. Love your quilt! I love your layout: it looks great in a medallion style!

  3. Beautiful! I'm getting ready to finish putting my quilt top together, but it seems like more than just four of the B 4.5 x 4.5 squares are needed. It looks like it requires 44 squares, correct?

    1. Nevermind. I found my strips for that part that we made earlier on. Thanks so much for the awesome pattern adjustments!


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