If you’re a fan of my Kindred Spirits fabric line, and you love pink and white, I’ve designed a quilt for The Fat Quarter Shop that I think you’ll love. We’re calling it “Hope Blooms”. It’s a quilt designed especially for breast cancer awareness and one that would make a wonderful gift for someone recently diagnosed. It has a touch of applique combined with one of my favorite quilt blocks, The Log Cabin!
I’ve always loved the log cabin block and I’ve spent a lot of time in the past trying to make each block perfect. This time it was easy because of the Creative Grids 8” Log Cabin Ruler. With this ruler you’ll end up with perfectly pieced log cabin blocks.
Using only the pink and white fabrics from my Kindred Spirits line gave the log cabin blocks a soft and feminine look. It’s a look that I love.
Hope Blooms is the perfect size for a lap quilt, 50” x 60”. The applique is easy and suitable for any method. Just remember to reverse the applique pattern if you use a fusible applique. Make it with or without the applique, it’s beautiful either way.
For the border I used my favorite fabric in the Kindred Spirits line…the pink and white vintage floral.
The Fat Quarter Shop is offering the exclusive pattern and kit for this quilt. They also carry the Creative Grids Log Cabin Ruler. You’ll find a video from The Fat Quarter Shop showing you how to use the ruler to make this block. It’s “sew” easy!
Enjoy the video that Kimberly made. You’ll want to add this ruler to your stash.
