Seaside Quilter's Building Blocks Quilt

Seaside Quilter writes:

"Thank you Leah and Josh Day for a superb quilt along. There were so many 'firsts' for me - first house block, basket, disappearing nine patch, FMQ straight lines, spirals and circles, joining the blocks ... I've learned such a lot and loved being part of this group which has been so supportive and inspiring.

"I only started patchwork in 2013 so don't have a stash but used left overs from the projects I'd completed last year. The batting is polyester. I used Isacord thread in the top and a cotton Mettler thread in the bobbin. I now have 2 Gidget tables, love the quilting gloves and the supreme slider. I started the blocks on a Bernette 25 then upgraded to an Elna Excellence 760."


  1. I love all the different colors on this. Beautiful!

  2. My favorite quilt by far. Fabric mix makes it sing. Love it.

  3. Beautiful! A wonderful holiday addition (or any time!!!)!!!!!

  4. I love the colorfulness of this quilt. I wish I had discovered quilting soon enough to have participated in this quilt along.

    1. Hi Marsha - You can actually still join in this quilt along anytime. The videos will stay up and the pattern is still available at so feel free to join in and make your own Building Blocks Quilt!
