Wonderland Quilt Along Block #1: The Hat

Let's get this tea party started! In case you missed my announcement, each month I'll be introducing a free block pattern for my Wonderland Quilt


We're starting things off with The Hat. Instructions follow, but you can also download a printable pdf on Craftsy.


Cutting:

Main Hat Fabric ( I used a random scrap. Let me know if you can identify the print.):
C- 8½” x 2½”
D- 5½” x 5½”

E- 5½” x 3”

Background (Daisies & Dots by Piece O' Cake Designs for Robert Kaufman):
A- (2) 8½” x 2”
B- 5½” x 1”

I used Aurifil 2600 (Dove) for piecing. It's light gray, and makes a nice neutral.


All seam allowances are ¼”.



Directions:

1. Attach B and E to opposite sides of D.




2. Attach A rectangles to each of the 8½” sides of BDE.



3. Attach C to the bottom of the existing unit.



Your unfinished block should measure 8 1/2" x 10 1/2". Don't forget to follow Quilting Mod via e-mail or a blog reader of your choice, so that you don't miss out on any blocks. Socialize with others and share your blocks at the Wonderland Quilt Along Facebook Group. Share your progress by using #WonderlandQuiltAlong on Instagram.

Disclaimer: Aurifil has kindly sponsored the thread for this project, but it would be my thread of choice regardless. Also, there are some affiliate links above, which will not cost you any extra if you make a purchase. While I appreciate any buying you'd like to do through my links, my main purpose is to help provide information about products I use in case you're interested in trying them out yourself. No pressure.

    1. I'm sure it'll be fine. You can take a scrappy approach, as each individual block doesn't take much fabric. Perhaps choose a unifying, neutral background.

  2. Hats off to you, for doing this QAL!! I have no clue what the hat fabric is--is this is test?
