Little Ruby Quilt - Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Along

I subscribe to the Fat Quarter Shop's blog, the Jolly Jabber.  I read the blog and was immediately interested in one of the Quilt Along's:  Little Ruby.  The pattern was designed by Camille Roskelly.  The fabric used is called Little Ruby and was designed by Camille and her mother, Bonnie Olaveson.  They design fabric and are known as "Bonnie and Camille."  I always buy at least a layer cake or jelly roll, sometimes both of their just released fabrics.  I love almost all of their fabric lines!  Camile's patterns are sold under the name, "Thimble Blossoms" and Bonnie's are sold under the name, "The Cotton Way."  They are a very talented mother/daughter team.

Kimberly mentions that you are able to make two quilts with all of the fabric purchased.  I love that!  It just seems remarkable.

This quilt looks like fun and the instructions seem fairly easy too.  There are four parts to this quilt along:  
                Part 1 - Getting Started was released on 5/30/2016, 
                Part 2 - Star Blocks was released on 6/13/2016,
                Part 3 - Quilt Assembly will be released 6/27/2016, and
                Part 4 - Finished Quilts will be released 7/11/2016.
The two parts that were released has a printable instruction sheet and a YouTube video on the Fat Quarter Shop's channel.  I am assuming that the last two parts will have the same instruction sheet and video.

I ordered all of the supplies from the Fat Quarter Shop:  2 -Little Ruby Jelly Rolls (55130JR), Background and Binding - 3 yards of fabric (55134-12) and 1 - Creative Grids Hexagons Trim Tool (CGRJAW4) and 1-Creative Grids 60 degree Double Strip Rules (CGRDBS60).  I already had two White Bella Solids Jelly Rolls (9900JR-98) in my stash.  The white jelly rolls were Junior sized and I noticed that Kimberly had two regular sized rolls on the video (I purchased two junior rolls from the instructions on the supply list) so I went to my local fabric shop and purchased one yard of White Bella Solids yardage just in case I did not have enough white. 

Most of the items arrived while we were in San Diego.  I had to do my BOM's, Flock of Feathered Stars and River Rock first.  So now I will start following the instructions from The Jolly Jabber blog.  I could post photos but you can watch the YouTube videos because they will show a better quality of photos/videos than I can produce.
