We’re celebrating our quilting community with a free block of the week quilt along called the Sewcialites 2 Quilt Along. We’ve joined forces with 24 talented designers to bring you all-new, unique sampler blocks! If you’re just joining us, you can find all of the details on the Sewcialites 2 Supplies Page. This week we’re excited to share Block #14, designed by April Rosenthal!
This week’s designer is April Rosenthal of Prairie Grass Patterns (@aprilrosenthal), who sewed the 9″ version of her Enchant block. April made her block with selections from her stash, including fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics, Carolyn Friedlander, and cute cuts from her Love Lily and Midnight Magic collections for Moda Fabrics.
Here’s what she shared about her design, “I love this block because it’s so simple but is so striking! Since there are several different shapes to work with, mixing and matching fabrics can really be fun. In my block, I used different values of my orange and white theme to create contrast. I’m sewing from my scrap stash and only using orange and white because orange is my favorite color, and it’s about time I made a quilt for me!”
We’ve sewn the Enchant block with different collections in all three size options. The 3″ block is sewn with Nutmeg by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics, the 6″ block in Dwell by Camille Roskelley for Moda Fabrics, and the 9″ block using Cinnamon & Cream by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics.
For reference, here are the sizes that she is sewing.
