Sewcialites 2 Block 21 – Dapper Block by Jane Davidson

Only four weeks left! If you’re just joining in, 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 #21, designed by Jane Davidson!


This week’s block designer is teacher and author Jane Davidson (@quiltjane) of Want it, Need it, Quilt! The Dapper block uses half square triangles is beginner-friendly! Jane shared about her design saying, “I love this simple but versatile block. You can make vibrant quilts with fussy cut elements, solids and prints. An easy block for beginners to make in any size.” She also shared the following when asked what she was sewing her 6″ block with, “2wenty thr3e by Eric and Julie Constock (blast from the past). I love the colours and modern elements of this fabric.”

We’ve sewn the Dapper 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 Dapper 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″
Blocks 17-243″
