Serendipity QAL with Fat Quarter Shop- Release 2

It’s time for the second release of the Serendipity Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop! I am having sew much fun stitching this up! You can find the FREE pattern here.

Serendipity QAL

I am stitching up my Serendipity quilt with Bonnie and Camille’s Shine On fabric line. If you have stopped by my blog before, it should come as no surprise that I am using Bonnie and Camille fabric. I am a super fan! All those pinks and aquas are a dream! Plus this line has rainbows! And let’s not forget that Shine On contains a reprint of my favorite print of all time…mums!

Pressing dream team

I couldn’t construct these flying geese without what I call, the pressing dream team! I use my Oliso mini iron to press my seams. It gets super hot which helps those flying geese to lay flat. The best part- it’s pink! After I press my seams, I place my clapper on the seam. I leave the clapper on my block while I prep another block. (It’s all assembly line quilting over here!) After pressing my blocks and using the clapper my seams are so flat!

I am also using Aurifil thread 50 wt. to piece my blocks. I’m using 2021 as there is a lot of white in the fabric and my background is white! I recently switched to a cone because I go through thread like crazy. I guess that means I sew a lot!

2021 Charity Quilt, Serendipity Quilt Along

This week’s release is called Happy Chance! And I couldn’t agree more! Flying geese have become one of my favorite blocks to construct. So I would say it is a happy chance when I get to make one! I pieced mine the traditional way so I could watch my directional fabric better. (I’m looking at you aqua rainbows!) You can also use 1 1/2″x 3″ flying geese foundation paper as another way to assemble the flying geese.

The Serendipity QAL is Fat Quarter Shop’s 8th annual charity quilt. They are taking donations for the Make-a-Wish Central and South Texas Campaign. It a great cause to help children in need so they can grant more wishes!

I found this sewing box at Ikea and I’m having such a fun time storing my blocks and supplies in it! I love functional and cute storage! How are you storing your Serendipity blocks?
