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 #4 designed by Chelsi Stratton!
This week’s designer, Chelsi Stratton (@chelsistratton) is a quilter, pattern designer, fabric designer, and podcast co-host. She designed the Flirty block, a beginner-friendly block that uses half-square triangles to create this ultra-fun shape. She said, “These days I’m crazy about any block that has a lot of color & feels geometric! With that said, I love how my particular Sewcialites block has a geometric look while showing off different colors and prints that give it a fun & flirty mix!”
We’ve sewn the Flirty 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 Flirty Block live in the Friday Livestream on Fat Quarter Shop’s YouTube Channel.
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.
