Perfect 5 Quilt Along Week 5 - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Perfect 5 Quilt Along Week 5

We’re back for Week 5 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’ve been sewing two blocks every Wednesday from October 9 to December 4, and we have a fun lineup of bloggers who will be sharing their blocks (and other Perfect 5 inspired projects) with us during the event!

Perfect 5 Sampler Quilt made with Early Bird by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.

We have the full Perfect 5 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 fifth set of blocks listed in the book, Chocolate Chip, and Oatmeal Raisin with Samelia’s Mum.


Anorina of Samelia’s Mum pieced her Oatmeal blocks for a vintage feel in Granny Chic by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs.

She even sewed her blocks into a cozy pillow! You’ll want to visit Samelia’s Mum’s blog to see how she did 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.

  1. Hi there,

    How do you get picked to be one the featured bloggers that are sewing along with a quilt along on the Jolly Jabber? As an aspiring quilt blogger, I would love to show my version of the blocks along with some ideas that will inspire my fellow quilters. Thank you. Donna Q.

  2. I’m enjoying this QAL with its variety of blocks. Is it possible that the Chocolate Chip cutting chart has a typo? “Make four” is written for the block but only 6 charms are listed. Should it be 8 charms required? Thank you for considering my questions.
