Perfect 5 Quilt Along Week 8 - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Perfect 5 Quilt Along Week 8

We’re back for Week 8 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, joined by a fun lineup of bloggers who’ve been 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 eighth set of blocks listed in the book, Macaroon and Shortbread with Melissa Corry of Happy Quilting.


She sewed her blocks up in Wonder by Kate & Birdie for Moda Fabrics.

Melissa pieced her Macaroon and Shortbread blocks into a mini quilt! It’s sew sweet how well these two blocks pair together.

You’ll want to visit Melissa’s blog to see how she designed her mini-quilt!
