Hi and welcome to the final reveal of the Serendipity quilt along! Every year Fat Quarter Shop does a charity quilt along. This year, the QAL benefits Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas. I have had a great time sewing along with Fat Quarter Shop for the Serendipity Quilt Along. I love this week the best! We got to show off all our hard work!
I love sampler quilts! I think it is sew fun to work on different blocks throughout the quilt. The Serendipity quilt has a variety of blocks with a variety of construction methods. Some of the blocks are constructed with Foundation Paper Pieces (FPP). Other blocks are constructed with traditional piecing. Both construction methods are included in the patterns. I think it is so fun to see all of these blocks come together! The finishing pattern can be found here.
I mock-up most of my quilts on my computer first. Then I can make sure similar prints aren’t touching and that the colors are spread evenly throughout the quilt. For example, I don’t want all of the reds at the top of the quilt. Plus since I’m short on space, I don’t have to take up room laying out the quilt. I usually have my kids help me with this part. It is nice to have an extra set of eyes looking at the quilt. Do you lay your quilt blocks out before you sew them together?
Here she is! I love how this quilt turned out! Each row is different and unique. I think the flower row is my favorite! Those big flowers turned out so cute in the middle of the quilt. And of course those navy mums are a favorite!
I had to take a quilt swirl pic with this quilt. I love how all of the rows come together. I chose to use the navy rainbows as the accent throughout the quilt. This is such a fun accent!
