Sewcialites Quilt Along: Free Block of the Week (Block 28)

Friday = time for a new block for the Sewcialites Quilt Along by Fat Quarter Shop. Woohoo! Block 28 is “Hope” by April Rosenthal of Prairie Grass Patterns. (I sure love her brain.) And did you know that April and I got hired by Moda at the same time?! It’s true. We’ve shared this fabric designing journey from the beginning so it’s made for a very special friendship. I have always loved how her designs are so outside-the-box. Today’s block was no exception.

The Fabric + Layout

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m using my upcoming Christmas Morning fabric collection for Moda (shipping May). I’m making 40 Sewcialites blocks total (a few extras) and dividing them into groups by color: 10 red blocks + 12 green blocks + 16 silver/grey blocks + 2 low volume blocks. I keep them organized in their color groups since they will be grouped together in the final quilt layout. Today’s block belongs to the “red” pile; to make it stand out from its other red friends, I used the grey “Comfort” print for the background. I prefer the grey in this case vs a white background because I don’t want the square shape of the block to disappear.
