Bountiful Quilt Along - Release 1 - Basket Blocks

The first block release of the Bountiful Quilt Along is here and I am just so excited !!!  This is Fat Quarter Shop's 10th Annual Charity Quilt Along and they are always my favorite :)  The 1st Friday of each month will be a new release for blocks and today are the Basket Blocks.   And how cute are these blocks, and how big as well!!!

I am using Meadowmere for by Gingiber for my blocks.   I just love how bold these prints are and I think they are going to make for a super chic Bountiful quilt!!   And of course, you know I am all about the metallic!!!   I just can't help myself when it comes to a little shine, and this Meadowmere line is full of shine ;)  In fact, I loved it so much, I used a low volume metallic for my background behind the baskets, so fun!! Truly though, aren't those baskets just to cute :)    

So are you joining in with the Bountiful Quilt Along fun???   You can download the block pattern right here and it is requested for each pattern you download to donate $10.00  to the Make a Wish Foundation :)  And I am super excited to say that even though it has just started,  Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity QAL has already raised almost $40,000!!!  The goal is $1000,000 which will allow for 16 wishes to be granted.  How awesome is that!!!  And Moda Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop have joined to match up to $30,000 :)  So many amazing wishes :)  

Be sure to share all of your Bountiful progress on social media with #bountifulqal and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for the Basket Blocks for lots more Bountiful Inspiration!!! 

And that's it for the First Release in the Bountiful Quilt Along!!!!
