We’re back for Week 7 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!
Perfect 5 Sampler Quilt made with Early Bird by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.
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 seventh set of blocks listed in the book, Frosted Cookie, and Fortune Cookie with Angie of Gnome Angel
Angie cut her Frosted Cookie blocks in several scraps including On The Lighter Side and Kona Cotton Solids for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
These prints and colors make Fortune Cookie such a fun, scrappy block. You’ll want to visit Angie’s blog to see more!
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!
