It is finally here and it is starting today.. I watched the Fat Quarter Shop Patchwork QAL for 2017 that benefitted Make a Wish. Each month the blocks came out and I thought I should have done that QAL. The block were all so beautiful and seeing them made by such creative quilters that I follow along with all year.
Fast forward to the 2018 charity QAL and I am doing the Fat Quarter Shop – Clementine QAL. This QAL will benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. This is such a great charity that provides so much for so many children in need. Please join us in 2018.
I’ll be using the Mama’s Cottage by April Rosenthal for Moda. I received my bundle of yumminess on Friday and started getting ready for my first blocks.
For January we will be making the Watermelon block in two sizes. Here is the Clementine Block pattern. I’ve got my pieces cut.
Starting January off right, my two blocks are done, they measure 20 1/2 x 20 12 and 12 1/2 by 12 1/2. I am ready for February. Each month we will be making one block in these sizes.
We’ll be sharing our progress and creations on the 2018 Clementine Quilt Along Facebook Group! You can also follow along with the #clementinequiltalong on Instagram.
Several very talented quilters will be quilting along, check out their fabric choices and progress at their links below:
