Bella Skill Builder

We have such a fun quilt along for you! From February 2017 through November 2017, we will be giving you a new block each month, complete with a finishing guide at the end of the series! The blocks will be released on the first of each month, and the best part is - they're free! Check back to download your free pattern and get started on a new block each month! We will also have video tutorials to accompany each pattern, and help you along the way!

Once you complete all of the blocks, you will wind up with this gorgeous quilt, and you will have learned some fun new skills to put towards other projects!
This pattern was designed exclusively for Fat Quarter Shop by Sherri McConnell!
The Bella Skill Builder quilt uses Bella Solids from Moda Fabrics - one of the premier solid fabric collections! Fat Quarter Shop carries every Bella Solid color and precut for all of your quilting needs! For the Bella Skill Builder, we will be focusing on eight eye-catching hues.
We've put all of the fabric that you need into one convenient kit, which you can get your hands on here! We also have all of your requirements for the backing kit! Since this quilt uses many different quilting skills, we've compiled all necessary notions including rulers and thread, to make your quilt even easier! Check out the notions page!

If you'd like to use different colored fabrics, here are the amounts of each that we used!

Caribbean 2.25 yards
Tea Rose 2 yards
Weathered Teak .75 yard
Raspberry 2.75 yards
Ruby Ice 1 yard
Zen Grey .75 yard
Off White 7.5 yards
Lagoon 1.25 yards

NOTE! Don't forget to print the patterns FULL SIZE on your print settings!

Sandy Long said...

Loving this!!! If we want to use different colors,are the fabric Requirements for the whole quilt listed anywhere?

Bonnie said...

Need supplies list for whole quilt for fabric please.

Feeling a bit dim but having problems printing out the template to what I presume to be the true size - my old printer used to have a "no scaling" option but my current one seems to be a different beast.
Is it possible to give the measurement of the base line of the triangle and I can draw out the template myself - wish I had listened more intently in geometry at school! Assume measurement from base to bottom of the black tip will be 6.5".

Original Fabric Requirements indicate a Tea Rose colored fabric. In block 2, Peach is one of the colors used. Are these two colors the same, or is there an additional color to the original list?

Tea rose is the color for 9900 89. Looks like they wrote peach in error.

Hi there! You may see the words "Peach" and Tea Rose interchanged, but they are the same! :) Thanks for asking!

I'm hoping you're the one with the answers on the "Bella Skill Builder" fabric requirements.

It calls for "Off White 7.5 yards" .... 7 1/2 yards? Seems a little on the excessive size. If possible, could you please confirm?

Thanks a bunch.

I'm not who you were asking, but here's what I'm thinking...the backing set is 5.5 yards and almost all of the background on the front is off white, plus border. I'm guessing the remaining 2 yards accounts for seam allowances plus some extra for cutting mistakes. How does that sound? I'm also interested to see the answer from The Fat Quarter Shop, now that you got me thinking abbot it.

Is this going to be a quilt as you go or if not are you recommending the type of quilting for each square? I would like to of it as a Quilt as you go and was hoping to learn new quilting template patterns.
Thank you.
