Bloom-Topia Quilt Along - Release 3

Hello March!!!!    And a new month means new "bloom" blocks!!!! Today is the Third Block Release of the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop :)   These blocks are both super fun and easy, and the alterations are super simple this time!!!

So for Block 4, I simply made two of the 4-B Large Duckling Blocks.   I also changed out the fabric in my center square, just to add some variety :)    You won't need to make any of the 4-A blocks for my alternate layout.   

And for Block 5, these will actually be the first inner border, rather than blocks.   The great thing is, you make them the same way only G is a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" square rather than a rectangle and you want to make 8 Matchstick Blocks total.   So fun!!!!

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 there are new finishing patterns being released today for reaching the next donation goal!!! 

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!!!   

Be sure to share all of your Bloom-Topia progress on social media with #bloomtopiaquiltalong and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Release 3 for lots more Block Inspiration!!!

And that's it for the third release in the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along!!!!   I will continue to share a new set of blocks on the 15th and 1st of each month. So what do you say, want to come Bloom-Topia Quilting Along??  You are going to have so much fun!!!

  1. I understand now about the 8-4.5” squares for the border by the #4 block. I thought you would do a chain of them for each side, but that might be more difficult. I sure like your fabrics. Thank you.


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