We’re back for Week 2 of the Perfect 5 Quilt Along for the Perfect 5 Quilts Book by It’s Sew Emma! This book is a celebration of one of our favorite precuts, the 5″ Charm Pack. Our Perfect 5 Sampler Quilt is a taste of all the quilts, as blocks from all 16 quilts are included.
We will be making two blocks every Wednesday from October 9 to December 4! We have a fun lineup of bloggers who will be sharing their blocks (and other Perfect 5 inspired projects) with us during the event!
We have the full Fabric Requirements HERE for you to use and pick out your fabrics for the Quilt Along. You will also need the Perfect 5 Quilts book and Perfect 5 Ruler to help you complete the sampler quilt.
This week we’re on the second blocks listed in the book, Ice Box, and Sugar Cookie with Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner.
Andy’s Sugar Cookie blocks are extra sweet made with Strawberry Jam by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. You’ll want to visit A Bright Corner to see what Andy made from these blocks! I know you’ll love it.
Now, if you’re ready to get into this week’s blocks, click on the image below to download the cutting instructions for them.
Some of our quilty staffers joined in the fun, too!
Each week we’ll feature a post from some talented quilters sewing along with us. On their blog, you’ll see their version of the blocks, plus some special quilting inspiration.
