Sewcialites Quilt Along: Free Block of the Week (Block 27)

Oh hey there. I’m busy crushing on this week’s new free block for the Sewcialites Quilt Along by Fat Quarter Shop. Block 27 is “Earnest” by my friend Vanessa Christenson over at V & Co. What do you think of that little pop of red in the center?

Fabric + Layout Plan

I’m using Christmas Morning fabric for Moda Fabrics (shipping July). I have a very specific quilt layout in mind and it will require (40) 6″ finished blocks divided into 4 main color groups: 10 red blocks + 12 green blocks + 16 grey blocks + 2 low volume blocks. I’m keeping them organized in their color groups to help inform my decision on how to make the new block each week. I decided to add to the green block pile this week, which is why this one is mostly green. To help it stand out from the others in the green group, I added the teeniest hint of red in the middle.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your finished quilt! I love your fabrics. My Sewcialites quilt is a mix of Farmer’s Daughter, Bloomington, and Garden Variety so far. I can’t wait to put it all together. It will be a wedding gift for my niece.
