Sewcialites 2: (Block 4)
It’s Friday, and I’m in love… Time for the newest Sewcialites 2 free block of the week! Block 4 is “Flirty” by Chelsi Stratton. This week’s block is such a sweet and simple block.
Block 4: “Flirty”
This block is perfect for any skill level with its beginner half-square triangle technique. Because of the block’s simplicity, it’s a great opportunity to showcase big, bold fabric prints.
The first block is mocked up in Country Rose fabric – out in shops now. This is scaled to represent the 6″ finished block size. I thought it was a great opportunity to showcase the larger floral mixed with a big of gingham in the center. It’s so cheery in this golden yellow color.
The second digital mockup is made up in Christmas Eve fabrics (shipping May 2023). I decided to use the lighter green for a background and highlight some of the pale prints. If using unidirectional prints like I did with the stripe – just pay attention to the direction of the marked diagonal line when making the HSTs (make sure they are identical).
The FREE “Flirty” block pattern will be made available on the Jolly Jabber blog here first (typically 8 am CST), but I’ll add the link to the button below as soon as it’s available so you can access it here:

If you go to the Jolly Jabber blog that download will work

Okay, so I am thinking that I may have to join Sewcialites 2 late and use Country Rose fabric! I love Christmas Eve and have preordered a half yard bundle but that won’t be here for a while. What white would you use for the background fabric?

I found your blog post on coordinating Bella solids!

I would use one of the Magic Dot prints within Country Rose – there is a white on white dot or a multicolor dot on white option. Otherwise, I like Bella Solid 9900 98. Hope that helps!

I can’t figure out how to download Block #4. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Barbara. You weren’t doing anything wrong. They don’t give us the link in advance and I went out of town when this posted so I wasn’t able to update until now. They always post the pattern on the Jolly Jabber blog first. It’s updated now 🙂
