Have you ever wanted to make a quilt using the Studio 180 Design Blockbuster Quilt blocks?  Or are you one of those Studio 180 Design fans that love the tools and want to expand your skills?  

Some of you may be wondering, what is a Blockbuster?  Starting in 2016, the Deb Tucker Studio 180 design team began developing a Free PDF download program called “Blockbuster” to encourage Deb Tucker Studio 180 Fans to play with their tools and work on their skill sets. The Quilt Along will take these Blockbuster Blocks and make a quilt out of them.

Graceful Points uses 15 of the Blockbuster Blocks (one Blockbuster will be repeated three times to make a total of 17 blocks) to complete your quilt.  You can have your choice of making two different sizes.

  • Wall Hanging (62” x 62”) – which was design around the 6”, 9”, and 12” block sizes.
  • King (110” x 110”) – which will use the 12” and 18” block sizes.



You will need to purchase the following for your quilt. You will need to have 4 different high-contrasting colors and one background color, such as White, Black, Grey, or Tan; it’s your choice.  Again, I will leave your color decisions up to you and your tastes in fabric.

My versions of the quilts will be the following from the Fabric Collection Island Batik “Birds and Bees” collection. I will be using (4) different contrasting fabrics and, for the background, a Cream color from the Island Batik Neutral Collection.

I have provided the yardage below for the quilt.  These are the basic yardage estimates, and I have done my best to make sure you have enough fabric to make your quilt.

Also, I have provided links to the color pages for both sizes of the quilts to add your own touch to the project.

Yardage: Based on 42” width of fabric

The first chart only includes the fabric to finish your quilt and does not include the border fabric.  The border fabric is listed in the second chart below. Again these are estimates.
