Aren't you tired of piecing your quilts,
but not being able to quilt and finish them?

To finish a quilt, you have to quilt it, and it's time to learn how to build skills for piecing and quilting at the same time. Within this pattern you will learn how to piece 12 blocks, and learn many traditional and nontraditional piecing skills along the way.

You'll get plenty of practice piecing because to finish your quilt, you will piece 42 blocks total to create your Building Blocks Quilt:

Finished Size 48" x 56"

The best part about this pattern is it includes both piecing AND quilting designs!

All 42 quilting designs are provided in full size 8 inch quilting guides, which you can use to mark your blocks and make the free motion quilting process easier.

One thing is for sure, you’re definitely not going to read “Quilt as desired” in this quilt pattern!


Bonus - Free Quilt Along Videos!

The Building Blocks Quilt is also being taught in a Quilt Along by Leah and Josh Day. Each week, free videos are posted right here for you to  follow along and watch how to piece and free motion quilt each block.

Watch the introduction video to this quilt along below:
