Clementine Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics

I'm so very excited to share my finished Clementine Quilt!!! I had sew much fun sewing along! I love that Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics have partnered together to match donations up $20,000 to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for this Quilt Along!

You may notice that my finished quilt looks different from the original pattern. I decided to make (9) 12" finished blocks. Next I used the pattern directions to set the blocks on point to make them 20" finished. I LOVE the secondary pattern that was created this way!

I love the all the Bonnie & Camille Aqua fabrics that I used for my quilt. They are sooooo lovely....even if it was challenging to photograph the colors in the bright sun :)

My fabrics

I choose my favorite Bonnie & Camille Aqua Fabrics to make my Clementine Quilt.

I've been wanting to expand my free motion quilting skills- so I quilted each block differently. It took forever and so much thread- but I LOVE it! I have decided swirls are awesome!

Plus Gingham me heart eyes!

I saved the trimmings from the setting the 12" block squares on point and made half-square triangles. Mixing these half square triangles and extra fabric pieces left over from my quilt gave me a scrappy's a reversible quilt now!

It's not too late to join can still sew your quilt and donate to St.Jude Children's Hospital.

How it works:

On the 25th of January - July 2018, Fat Quarter Shop will release a Clementine pattern with matching video. The Clementine patterns are FREE to download at Fat Quarter Shop. It is suggested that you make a donation of $5 to the Fat Quarter Shop St. Jude campaign for each time you download the pattern.

Fat Quarter Shop has an amazing kit available featuring Mama's Cottage by April Rosenthal. It is gorgeous! Available here.

  1. Oh - I just love your quilt!! Love all the soft aqua fabrics you used for each block, and how you set them on point and made the secondary blocks appear. It is so gorgeous - a real treasure!! Also love the backing you pieced and the super lovely quilting on this treasure quilt. Truly awesome!

  2. I love how you made this quilt your own with the Bonnie and Camille fabrics and alternative setting. It came out awesome!

  3. Melanie this is beautiful. What you did with the blocks and the color choices are perfect. Using your leftovers for a scrappy backing is perfect. This will be a quilt that will be used and enjoyed over the years.
