Quilt Block Skirt: May Love for Mom

{Quilt Along at Whimsical Fabric}

This is something new for me… I made Quilt Blocks.  Following the May Quilt Blocks at Whimsical Fabric, I stitched up 5 Heart Quilt Blocks in some Riley Blake fabrics.  Then I pieces the blocks with a blue coordinate to make a border on a simple gathered skirt for my daughter.

Whimsical Fabric is hosting a Quilt Along this year.  They introduce a new quilt block every month with a complete tutorial to help you make your own blocks.  You can look them up HERE.

For May, the block was a heart to show LOVE for Mom.

Most often, I sew garments for my kids – usually my 6 year old daughter.  I feel rushed to make all the cute girl patterns out there while she is still willing to wear what I make.  I figure there is time later in my sewing hobby to make for me and to quilt.  So, most of my projects are girlie clothes.  But, after working some heavy hours at my day job over the past few weeks, I wanted a different project that didn’t require me to figure out too much and that I could finish quickly to feel the rush of something done.  The Whimsical Fabric’s Quilt Along was perfect!  (remember, I told you the tutorial tells you exactly what to cut, and how to stitch it… simple)

After I made my 5 quilt blocks, now what???

Well…. I guess I returned to my comfort zone and put them on a quick skirt.
