Christmas Morning Fabric Sewcialites Quilt Along

Sewcialites Quilt Along: Free Block of the Week (Block 1)

Late to the party – but finally caught up sewing blocks for the Sewcialites Quilt Along by Fat Quarter Shop. I started in the middle of the quilt along with Block 20 and finally went back to the first 19. The plan is to post my blocks one at a time (one per day). Friday will still be reserved for the new block releases. Meet Sewcialites Block #1 “Harmony” by Lissa Alexander (Moda Lissa).

Fabric + Layout

I made Block #1 Harmony using my Christmas Morning fabric collection for Moda Fabrics (shipping July). I kept this block pretty basic–almost exclusively grey and white–but decided at the last minute to add a little pop of color in the center.

My final quilt top assembly is a secret for now–but I can tell you I’m collecting 40 blocks total. (This means I’ll be making a few of them twice.) I’m organizing my quilt blocks into color groups: 10 red + 12 green + 16 grey + 2 low volume. Can’t wait to show you more, stay tuned in the coming months.

    I love all the blocks but definitely have some favourites. I have started putting my quilt together with the lay out that was on the blog, really like the layout. I haven’t posted any on social media, will post some soon.
    Found this sew along at block 20 and caught up quickly as the blocks are fun and easy to make (I am hooked).
    Looking forward to finishing. Thank you so much for this sew along it has kept me sane.
