Another fun quilt along is HERE! This one will be a combination of big quilt blocks and small ones, so it’s going to be a fun one.

This fun quilt along is hosted by Fat Quarter Shop using the book Simply Half Yards, but with a FREE new layout. The setting is beautiful and I can never get enough star blocks, so it was an easy YES for me to join the quilt along.

Week 1: 16.5-inch squared big quilt block

This week we kick off with these large star blocks. I love how gigantic these are as compared to the usual blocks I use to make. 

big quilt blocks

These are 16.5″ quilt blocks, and they come together pretty easily from the same unit. I took advantage of chain piecing and batch piecing, cutting and pressing the units which makes it so much easier. 

You can watch a sped-up process of me making these blocks over in a reel on Instagram HERE>
