Every year Fat Quarter Shop hosts a fabulous quiltalong that benefits a specific charity. This year they have chosen St. Jude’s children’s hospital! Each month January-July there will be one block pattern in 2 sizes to complete. At the end there is a really fun way to make the setting unique. It is suggested that per pattern you use, you donate $5 to St. Jude’s by clicking this link or following the same link from one of Fat Quarter Shop’s blog postings. For the first month, we get to make Watermelon Wheel. It’s a clever block that is really simple to construct, thanks to strip piecing! For the block, head to this Fat Quarter Shop post!
