Welcome to month 1 of the Bella Skill Builder, a ten-month series courtesy of Fat Quarter Shop.
This quilt was designed by Sherri McConnell, and the free, yes free, blocks will be released on the first of each month, starting today and running through November.
This month's blocks are the classic kaleidoscope block, in two sizes.
Spider Web Ruler.
I have used Marti Michell's Kaleido-Ruler for years and it's another great option.
Persimon Dreams chose to make a scrappy solids quilt, which I think is going to be fabulous. In the end, I went with a "Figtree Quilts" palette. The plan is to donate this quilt to the annual quilt auction at the West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale in 2018, with proceeds going to Third World relief.
