Piece and Quilt Sampler QAL - Month 1

It's Month 1 of the  Piece and Quilt Sampler Quilt Along and I am just so excited to share my first set of blocks!!!  Thanks to Fat Quarter Shop for hosting this awesome quilt along from the Celebrate with Quilts book!! And here is the month 1 finish, so fun :)   

I am making my Piece and Quilt Sampler in a diagonal Rainbow of Ombre goodness. (see plan here)  That just means some of the blocks might look a little weird color wise, but it is going to be so incredible when it all comes together.  So this month we started with 12 of the 3" Shoo Fly blocks.   Aren't they so fun and tiny, so cute!!! 

And then, it was on to the Dandy Star block.   And yes, I was so in the habit of making 3" blocks, I made my Dandy Star block 3" as well and went to put it in the big block and realized something was amiss.    But it's so cute, I don't mind adding it to my orphan block box.  It will just be an adorable pop in an orphan quilt ;)   And after making the 3" Dandy Star, making the 6" version was a breeze.  It went together in no time at all.   

So are you going to quilt along with the Piece and Quilt Fun???  It's going to be such a fun QAL!  Oh, and once you are done your blocks, Be sure to share your Piece and Quilt Sampler progress on social media with #PieceAndQuiltSamplerQAL and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Month 1   for lots more Celebrate with Quilts Inspiration!!!   

And that's it for Month 1 - 3" Shoo Fly and 6" Dandy Star Blocks in the Piece and Quilt Sampler Quilt Along!!!!      

Thanks for popping in today ;)  Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
