Sewcialites 2 Block 20 – Fascinate Block by Sherri McConnell

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 #20, designed by Sherri McConnell!


This week’s designer is Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life (@aquiltinglife), who sewed the 3″ version of her block, Fascinate. The Fascinate block uses four patches and half square triangles to create an intricate look at a beginner level! Sherri sewed hers using Favorite Things by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. She shared about her design saying, “I’m crazy about scrap quilts and star blocks, so I’m extra in love with this block!”

We’ve sewn the Fascinate 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.

You can join Kimberly for a live sewing tutorial of the Fascinate block live in the Friday Livestream on Fat Quarter Shop’s YouTube Channel.

For reference, here are the sizes that she is sewing, and her finishing pattern.

Blocks 1-89″
Blocks 9-166″
