Sewcialites Quilt Along: Free Block of the Week (Block 20)

One of the things I love about quilting is that there really aren’t any rules. For example, it’s halfway through the Sewcialites Quilt Along and I’m just barely starting! Anyone want to join me?

The Sewcialites Quilt Along is a free block-of-the-week program hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. There are 36 blocks total with a new block releasing every Friday until 7/2/2021. Each block can be made in 3″, 6″, or 9″ finished size options. I will be making the 6″ finished size for my blocks!

Last Friday’s release was Block 20: Honor by Lisa Bongean. I absolutely loved making this log cabin style block. I made 3 scrappy blocks–one per color.

Fabric + Layout

I’m using my upcoming Christmas Morning fabric collection for Moda shipping to shops July 2021. Fat Quarter Shop has a free quilt layout for the Sewcialite Quilt Along here if you’d like to use it. I’ll be using my own layout. For my layout, I’m making 40 blocks total = 10 red + 12 green + 16 grey + 2 low volume. Once you have seen my layout, this color breakdown will make a lot more sense:

    Hello Vanesa:) I am a faithful viewer of Sherri and Chelsi’s Podcast, and was a pleasure to see you with your recent visit. I am a long time fan of all your fabric collections, with “Nest” being a dear favorite of mine. I am new to your blog and am very much enjoying it:) **I especially wanted to thank you for always mentioning the “design pattern” your quilter uses on each quilt. It is so helpful for me, I am a “forever sew-est” but somewhat new-ish to the quilting world. I often struggle with choosing just the right pattern before I send my quilts of to my quilter. I have spent “hours” searching for long-arm patterns, so, a treat to me when you provide that information:)!!

    Thank You so very much
    Chris
    P.S. I am “smitten” with “Christmas Morning”! I like to make a new Christmas quilt every year, this fabric line is my next inspiration!

      Thank you, Chris! I don’t know why I hadn’t been including the quilting pantos before, it is such great information and also gives credit to the amazing designers who come up with those. Glad you have found it helpful. Thank you for your sweet comment!
