Bella Skill Builder - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Bella Skill Builder

We have such a fun quilt along for you! From February 2017 through November 2017, we will be giving you a new block each month, complete with a finishing guide at the end of the series! The blocks will be released on the first of each month, and the best part is – they’re free! Check back to download your free pattern and get started on a new block each month! We will also have video tutorials to accompany each pattern, and help you along the way!
Once you complete all of the blocks, you will wind up with this gorgeous quilt, and you will have learned some fun new skills to put towards other projects!
This pattern was designed exclusively for Fat Quarter Shop by Sherri McConnell!
The Bella Skill Builder quilt uses Bella Solids from Moda Fabrics – one of the premier solid fabric collections! Fat Quarter Shop carries every Bella Solid color and precut for all of your quilting needs! For the Bella Skill Builder, we will be focusing on eight eye-catching hues.
We’ve put all of the fabric that you need into one convenient kit, which you can get your hands on here! We also have all of your requirements for the backing kit! Since this quilt uses many different quilting skills, we’ve compiled all necessary notions including rulers and thread, to make your quilt even easier! Check out the notions page!
