Welcome, Quilters! We're super excited to kick off our newest Quilt Along today: Little Ruby! This gorgeous quilt, designed by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms, was made with our FREE pattern and the Little Ruby fabric collection by Bonnie & Camille. Whichever fabrics you choose to use, this quilt will sparkle like a gem when it's completed so let's get started!
This quilt pattern is super cool because you'll actually end up with enough blocks for two different quilts if you add additional background fabric and binding! FYI: The background fabric used for the second quilt, the quilt on the right in the image below, is Little Ruby Coral Little Sundae.
While this multi-faceted quilt may look difficult, we've got many tools to help you complete a Little Ruby quilt of your own. Not only will we share three separate video tutorials to show you what to do, step-by-step, we also have some Creative Grids Rulers that are going to make cutting and piecing so much easier. Woo hoo!
In addition, we also have nineteen fabulous bloggers quilting along, so you'll be able to see their fabric selections, progress and finished quilts!

Watch the first part of the video tutorial series above, and
see just how easy it is to get started with this beautiful quilt.
The free pattern for Part 1 can be found HERE.
If you love the FQS version of the Little Ruby Quilt as much as we do, you'll be happy to know we're offering a Little Ruby Quilt Along Kit! This quilt was designed by Camille Roskelley exclusively for FQS, and it's such a beauty! We also have a coordinating Backing Set!
Two Creative Grids rulers were used to make this quilt: Creative Grids Hexagon Trim Tool and Creative Grids 60 degree Double Strip Ruler, which need to be purchased separately from the quilt kit.

We're super excited to have several talented bloggers quilting along with us.
