Bloom-Topia Quilt Along - Release 7

Well it's April 1st, and no Foolin Around here today ;)  It's is the Seventh Block Release of the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop and I am super excited :)   These blocks are both super fun and all use some of the classic units that I just love!!!

So for Block 11, were just squaring up the block by making 4 extra HST's.   I didn't have triangle paper so I simply used 16 Print 4" x 4" squares and 16 Background 4" x 4" squares.  Sew your HST's and then trim them to 3 1/2".  Then sew them into blocks with the below layout.  Make 2 blocks ;)  

And  for Block 12, we are just making a small portion of the block.   (oh, and I messed up my numbering of the blocks here because I didn't realize this was 11B and not 12, but I think you can still follow along pretty easy ;)    We will be making 2 of these Gander blocks and I switched the background and prints in the entire layout.   So for cutting the prints you will need 4 Print A squares 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" for the Snowball and 20 Print C squares 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (cut 5 each of 4 prints) for the 9 patch.     For cutting the Background you will need 16 Background E squares 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" for the Snowball and 16 Print G squares 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" for the 9 patch.     

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!!!   

Be sure to share all of your Bloom-Topia progress on social media with #bloomtopiaquiltalong and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Release 7 for lots more Block Inspiration!!!
