Serendipity QAL with Fat Quarter Shop- Release 4

Hi and welcome to the fourth release for the Serendipity Quilt along with Fat Quarter Shop! I am excited to share my blocks with you today.

Serendipity Quilt Along

I am using Bonnie and Camille’s fabric line Shine On. And I couldn’t love this line more! I am a huge Bonnie and Camille fan and this line does not disappoint!

2021 Charity Quilt, Serendipity Quilt Along

The Serendipity Quilt is Fat Quarter Shop’s yearly charity quilt. This quilt along will benefit to Make-a-Wish Central and South Texas. This is a FREE pattern that you can download here.

HST all cut out!

Let’s chat about half square triangles (HST). I love stitching up HST and using them in a quilt. I don’t love trimming and trimming and trimming them! I have fallen in love with my Go! Qube 8″ Mix and Match Set. I get perfectly trimmed HST every time. The best part? No trimming!

Pressing dream team

Once I am done assembling my HST, I give them a good press. I am using what I call the pressing dream team! I press my HST with my mini pink Oliso iron. Then I place my Riley Blake Designs clapper on the seam for a bit. My seams are so flat!

I am also using my favorite Aurifil thread 50 weight. I am using 2021 which is a nice neutral. I recently switched to a cone because I was going through spools of thread so quickly. I guess that means I sew a lot!

More Accuquilt cutting!

I cut out the rectangles with my Go! Qube 4″ Mix and Match Set. I have never enjoyed cutting out small pieces. So this new Go! Qube set is the best! Tiny pieces all cut out! With everything all cut out, all that is left is to assemble!

Good Fortune Blocks

Aren’t these blocks sew cute? I am loving the navy rainbows as the accent! I also used a couple of other rainbow prints for these blocks. Is there such thing as too many rainbows? And of course I LOVE the pink mums!

Good Fortune Blocks

I am loving this sewing box! I found it at Ikea. It is the perfect size to store all of my Serendipity blocks as I work on them! I love these blocks all stitched up!
