Sewcialites Quilt Along: Free Block of the Week (The Finished Quilt in Christmas Morning Fabrics)

A Christmas quilt for every bed, that’s the goal at my house – and I’m well on my way! Just finished binding my Christmas version of the Sewcialites quilt and am looking forward to decking my halls (and beds) in a few more months. Last June, I started sewing along with my friends in the Sewcialites Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop and am so pleased with how it turned out.

The Block Patterns

Who doesn’t love a free quilt pattern? The Sewcialites Free Block of the Week project features 36 block designs from your favorite quilters and designers in the industry! Fat Quarter Shop did such a great job putting this together. Each block pattern includes instructions to make each block in 3″, 6″, or 9″ finished block size. I decided to make (40) 6″ finished blocks (i.e. 6-1/2″ unfinished). If you’d like a closer look at my individual blocks made in Christmas Morning fabric, you can peruse my Sewcialites blog post library here! These blocks are so luscious and happy all together, don’t you think?

The Rose in Bloom Layout

Early on, I decided to use the Rose in Bloom layout for my Sewcialites blocks. (In case you didn’t know, Rose in Bloom is a new block of the month book featuring my Love Note collection. It will arrive in November – get the full details here.) This layout is a great way to show off 6″ finished size sampler blocks in a flower inspired design. It is easy to swap out the sampler blocks from any quilt along i.e. Sewcialites, Moda Blockheads, etc. You just need (40) sampler blocks total in the 6″ finished block size. For Sewcialites, this meant doubling up on a few of the blocks.

Sewcialite Block Color Groupings:

  • 10 red blocks
  • 12 green blocks
  • 16 grey blocks
  • 2 low volume blocks (for the flower center)

This makes the 7th quilt finish in Christmas Morning fabrics. I think that’s supposed to mean I’ve reached my Christmas quilt goals and yet… somehow I doubt this is the last Christmas quilt I’ll ever make! In fact, I have a feeling I’m just getting started.

Until next time, friends!

    Very pretty blocks. We are moving and sewing stash is. In storage, therefore I will print the block and make the quilt at a later time.

    I love love love this quilt. You have the sample blocks listed separately- do the fabric requirements include fabric for these blocks? I want to make sure I have enough to make one exactly like yours! Thank you.

      I do not know the exact fabric requirements for the blocks. Since it’s a sampler, it was hard to map out ahead of time. I made it up as I went along, using scraps and yardage from my stash. The fat quarter bundle is an estimate but I definitely found myself using some of the more near-solid prints like the “Magic Dot” and “Comfort” prints so I would definitely get a half yard of those. Hope that helps!

      Hi Sandy! I don’t sell my own fabric aside from a rare boxed kit here and there (or destash). I would encourage you to support your local shop! You can find the nearest quilt shops near you that carry Moda using the Moda search tool here:

      https://modafabrics.com/store-locator/

      From there, you can give your local shops a call to see if they have this particular Layer Cake in stock. There are also many online shops that carry the collection and are happy to ship it right to your door. Hope that helps. 🙂
