Clementine Quilt Along - Month #3 Peaches and Plenty

Hi Peeps!

Can you believe it's been a month already since the last block in the Clementine QAL??

Peaches and Plenty is another super cute block which will put your 1/4" seam and point matching skills to the test!

Don't get me wrong these blocks are in no way difficult to make but they do force me to slow down and really pay attention to my most basic sewing skills...which is always a good thing.

The Clementine QAL is run by Fat Quarter Shop to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital  and they're also partnering with Moda who will generously match up $20,000 for all funds raised.

It's a $5 USD donation for downloading the latest block available on the 25th of every month.....cup of coffee once a month really ;) 

OK onto the block....I actually cut my Squares for the HST even slightly larger than the suggested size in the pattern....plenty of wiggle room then when squaring them up.

And this time I made both block components simultaneously instead of one after the other, but I always sew the smaller block units together first....otherwise my attention span wanes and if I go from the big to small there's wayyyyy more moaning about the teeny squares LOL

Starch and press, starch and press....then everything matches up beautifully!

Smaller 12" block where the finished HST are 1 1/2"

The 20" block which would also make a great scrap quilt....just saying ;) The bias stripe from Bonnie and Camille's basics really messed with my eyes when cutting....I'd avoid it if you suffer migraines.

So there we have it two more blocks done and dusted and all for a great cause.
Talk soon peeps xx

  1. As always, your colour choices are fabulous. You can never go wrong with spots, stripes and checks.
    Working from big to small is a great tip.
    I agree wholeheartedly about the tiny donation of a ‘cup of coffee’ to a good cause: well worth it.


Thanks for saying Hi........give me a day or so and I will say Hi back and answer any questions you may have....have a great day :)
