Sewcialites 2 Block 6 – Always Star by Camille Roskelley

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. This week we’re excited to share Block #6 designed by Camille Roskelley!


This week’s designer, Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms (@thimbleblossoms), is a quilt and fabric designer. She designed the Always Star block which features several half-square triangles and flying geese. Camille sewed using her own collection Dwell for Moda Fabrics. She said, “I’ve done several variations of this block over the years and never get tired of it! It looks great in every fabric I’ve tried and is so fun to put together.”

We’ve sewn the Always Star 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 Always Star 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.

  1. I always read your blog. It brings me great joy
    and inspiration. I just do not always have time to comment.
    Thank you Fat quarter shop for every bit of your massive efforts.
    I am grateful
    I will print out this block and make one!!

  2. I thought I had sewn the wrong block! It is amazing how different this block looks whether you did it in 2 colors or 4 colors.

  3. Thank you for sharing these wonderful patterns from so many great designers! I’m always impressed by their work. Thanks to Kimberly and the Fat Quarter Shop for putting it all together!

  4. I love this site because I can blow it up for easy reading. Although my eye surgeries and sinus cancer has put me behind on my piecing/quilting, I’ll beat it and I’ll be back.
