We’re celebrating our quilting community with a free block of the week quilt along called the Sewcialites Quilt Along. We’ve joined forces with 18 talented designers to bring you a free 38-week quilt along with amazing sampler blocks and sew many options! If you’re just joining us, you can find all of the details over on the Sewcialites Landing Page. We’re excited to get started with Block #1 this week!
This week’s designer, Lissa Alexander is known by many as ModaLissa (@modalissa), and she is the Marketing Director of Moda Fabrics. Lissa loves all things scrappy and designed her block to work in “harmony” with any fabric selection you choose. The Harmony block blends half square triangles with hourglass units for a fun and challenging first block!
Lissa sewed her 9″ Harmony block in scraps of Bella Solids by Moda Fabrics from her collection. Lissa shared a helpful tip for piecing her block. Starching the fabrics for this block can make piecing the smaller cuts easier and ultimately more accurate. Visit Lissa’s blog for more details.
