FQS Perfect 10 Tuesday




Image result for Fat Quarter shop perfect 10 quilt along
This is the finished 



Here we are at week #6 in this 8 week 
quilt along with the Fat Quarter Shop!
I have half of my blocks made for this quilt and
I am getting so anxious to lay it out and put it together!



This week  I made the Sorbet block
 in "lemon and lime"!



And the second block for this week was
Mint Chocolate Chip!
Which was my most favorite ice cream 
when I was a kid!




The blocks are super quick to cut out,
especially with the Perfect 10 Ruler.


These prints in the Clover Hollow layer cake 
by Sherri at A Quilting Life are so cute.
I have enjoyed pulling a 10" square 
or two from the stack
each week and seeing how 
pretty these blocks are made
 up in this fabric line.


Perfect 10 Book and Perfect 10 Ruler

There are a couple more weeks in the quilt along...
but I wouldn't let that stop you from buying this book...
not only is there plenty of time to make your own Perfect 10 sampler...
 but
each of these
 blocks in the 
sampler are made up into
super cute full size quilts... 
all of them using a layer cake! 

Have you seen the Perfect 10 blocks by these bloggers this week?

Boy the weeks are going by so fast!
Can you believe that it's 
week 5 for the FQS Perfect 10 Quilt Along?


Dutch Chocolate is the name of the block below...
I'm always amazed at what secondary designs 
can be made out of
half square triangles!




If you haven't joined in yet... now is a perfect time!
I usually wait until I start seeing posts of the different 
fabrics being used so I can make up my mind
which look I like best...
so be sure to go take a look at the other bloggers posts
to see how their blocks are coming together!




We are more than half way through the 
quilt along now... and I am getting so excited
to start putting my blocks together! 

I am also going to decide which quilt block I am going to make
into a full sized quilt first!
It would very well be the French Vanilla...
(the block above)
these blocks are so quick...
and I can see whipping up some more blocks in
Winter colors for a special little gift!
... umm, 
the cover quilt might be the first favorite...
Which one is your favorite???

perfect 10 sampler
October 30 – Cookies ‘n Cream Bock 
and Cotton Candy Block

HI! Have you been following along this month?
I have posted photos of these blocks
while under construction...
and sharing them here
 for Perfect 10 Tuesday.

Here is my Cotton Candy block... 
in production!
What I have been enjoying about this 
quilt along... is that you can make
a few simple units and they
turn into fun and interesting blocks!


And here it is with the units put together!

Next... or actually the first block
for this week was 
the Cookies and Cream block...

I love trying out these unique blocks...
and they go together pretty fast too!


I know I am going to be making 
some of these blocks into complete
quilts... I just have to decide which ones!

If you are thinking about 
joining the Quilt Along, we have
 been making two super easy blocks from the
every Tuesday from October 9 to December 4!

 Then we will be assembling the blocks... 
it makes into full size quilt 63.5" x 71"!!!

Another Perfect 10 Tuesday!

This week just zipped by!
Luckily I was able to whip up the two Perfect 10 Blocks
for this week in no time at all!
If you are just thinking about sewing along... please join
in... 
the blocks are super fast and easy to make.


This 10" ruler is so ... well, perfect. 
I buy a lot of pre-cut fabrics... especially, Layer Cakes...
so I can see this guy being very useful!

I took a close up so you could see the little 
black and white dash lines. 
I especially love the way it grips!
This Perfect 10 Ruler is now 
in my "selected" collection 
of favorites!

 The item on the Fat Quarter Shop website.
It's made by Creative Grids... and we all know
their rulers are great!



This block is the Coffee Block.
I actually made a couple of these because they are 
so simple and cute.

This block is called Cookie Dough...
it's a huge 24" block.

Now that I am looking at it...
I am going to go back and change the placement of the top two units.
Don't you think they will look better reversed?

This sampler is going to be so fun!
But the best thing about this Perfect 10 Quilt Book
is that each one of the blocks has directions for making 
it into a quilt and in different sizes as well!
