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 over on the Sewcialites 2 Landing Page. We’re excited to share Block #3 this week!
This week’s designer, Jackie MacDonald, designs under the name Sweetfire Road (@sweetfireroad). She brings beautiful artistry to her fabric designs and quilts. She designed the Patchy Days block, a patchwork block that uses flying geese and four patches. She said, “I’m crazy about my block because it combines two things I love… 4 patch blocks and half square triangles! Happy quilting!”
We’ve sewn the Patchy Days 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.
The suggested fabric requirements and all the block patterns released so far will be posted on the Sewcialites 2 Landing Page, so don’t forget to bookmark it for later reference.
