Christmas Morning Fabric Sewcialites Quilt Along

Sewcialites Quilt Along: Free Block of the Week (Block 5)

Nope. I didn’t skip Block 4. It is one of the blocks I actually posted on time! I did make an update to my original post, so go check out my Christmas-y version of Sewcialites Block 4 here. Now let’s get up close and personal with another quilt block of the Sewcialites Quilt Along by Fat Quarter Shop. Because I jumped into the quilt along a little late, I’m playing catch up and will be posting one block each weekday (besides on Friday when the newest block releases). Block 5 is “Wisdom” by Sherri McConnell at A Quilting Life.

Fabric + Layout

If you’ve been following along, you already know I’m dividing my 6″ sampler blocks into 4 color groups for a total of 10 red blocks + 12 green blocks + 16 grey blocks + 2 low volume blocks. As you may have guessed, Block 5 is going in the “green” pile. I made a reverse image of the block design (swapped the print and background cutting directions) and added a fun little pop of red to the center. Fabric is my Christmas Morning fabric collection for Moda Fabrics (shipping July).
