Hope Blooms

Welcome to my stop on the Fat Quarter Shop's Top Ten Videos of 2015.  
Today I'm sharing the Hope Blooms Quilt Block.  
I love log cabin blocks and the video from Fat Quarter Shop ensures your log cabin blocks will be perfectly square!  The video shows how to make the 8 1/2" log cabin using the Creative Grids Log Cabin Trim Ruler.  I seriously love this ruler!
If you want to make the quilt, you can find the pattern HERE.
My favorite part of any new sewing project is picking out the fabric.  I was inspired by this Fat Quarter Shop bloggers bundle from Quilt Jane.  I love the coral pink, turquoise and grey combo.  
I chose to use predominately coral pink and grey for my blocks.  You can see some Paperie by Art Gallery Fabrics and Lakehouse Favorites that I used in the blocks.
I decided to make a pillow with four squares and grey dot sashing from Lakehouse.  I love how it turned out and you can never have too many pretty pillows : ) 
Next project is a full size quilt to match the pillow!
