Patchwork Quilt Along Big Block 12

Oh my gosh, we’re on Mother’s Own Big Block 12 of Fat Quarter Shop’s Patchwork Quilt Along, the final month! Before I talk about my blocks, you need to know something that I am reeeeeeally excited about it. THIS excited!


Christmas sales at the Fat Quarter Shop

Fat Quarter Shop is having:

Fat Quarter Shop up to 25% off sale


12 Days of Christmas sales and even though you may have missed the first few days, I consider today’s sale to be one of my favorites.

The only reason I am putting this at the top of today’s post is because this sale ends at 10am CST, so if you need to shop and it’s not too late, run over there right now by clicking this link. Then come back. I’ll wait. I already ordered an entire bolt of this Moda 9900-97,  the perfect background fabric.

So, are you back? Well, let’s get to it!

My heart is breaking just a teensy bit as I share my final blocks. I love finishing a project, but I’ll miss my fellow PWQAL members in the social groups and seeing their blocks each month. Hopefully, everyone will join the Clementine Quilt Along!

My Big Block 12 print fabric is from Bonnie & Camille’s Scrumptious line for Moda Fabrics, long ago retired. I like Bonnie & Camille Basics White Bliss Dot background fabric so much that I ordered an entire bolt of it, too!

Wasn’t it just yesterday I was announcing the Big Block version of this quilt and sharing a picture of Big Block 1? How could that have been 11 months ago?

I should probably insert here, this won’t be my final post for the Patchwork Quilt Along. For those of you who’ve been following the Big Blocks each month, I will have another post next week, providing you with the finishing measurements and photographs. There will be two options:

  1. The red and white quilt shown above, which includes a single sashing and corner stones. It follows the style of FQS’s PWQAL quilt, but with enlarged measurements to accommodate the Big Blocks.
  2. A pieced sashing and corner stones, which I used on my Big Block quilt and will share next week. Technical difficulties, lost pictures, and  a new computer ordered in a frantic rush (but loving it and 2-day shipping), all played a part in this delay.

If you’re wanting these instructions and fear you’ll miss them, sign up for my newsletter to get an update next week.

  1. How do I get the finishing instructions? I am just now catching up and clearly missed the opportunity to get the newsletter to get the instructions :(….

  2. Hi, I Love, Love, Love how you resize the blocks in your quilts! I can’t find the finishing instructions for your Patchwork QAL Big Blocks. Did I miss it? Thanks! I’m almost ready to put it all together. Just starting the Big Blocks now. I will share pics on IG when I get them completed. @quilty_me_
