Patchwork Quilt Along - Block 2

The second block in Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity quilt-along has just been revealed: it's called 'Diamond Panes' and the pattern is now available on the FQS blog. In case you missed my first blog post - this is the quilt we are making!

You can either use your own fabrics, or order a quilt kit from Fat Quarter Shop if you would like to make the same quilt as above, featuring Bonnie & Camille Basics fabric.

This quilt along benefits Make-A-Wish. This fantastic organization grants the wishes of children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. The Patchwork quilt blocks are FREE to download on the 15th of every month on the Fat Quarter Shop blog, Jolly Jabber, starting today. We only ask a suggested donation of $5 to the Make-A-Wish campaign for each time you download a block pattern.

My quilt is going to include a blend of pinks and reds with a dotted grey background. For this month's main fabrics I used a selection of Riley Blake prints: there is the text print and small floral pink from my Sweet Orchard collection, three prints from Carina Gardner's Posy Garden line, and the red floral from Lori Holt's Sew Cherry 2 collection.

I hope you like my blocks! You can also check out the quilts other guest bloggers are making by visiting their blogs, here's the full list:
