Sewcialites Block 10 – Sincere by April Rosenthal

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 sewing up block #10 this week!

This week’s designer, April Rosenthal designs fabrics and patterns for Moda Fabrics, and she is so creative! We loved all the fun patterns and designs she made with her Halloween collection, Midnight Magic this year, and her new Homestead collection is a hit, too!  The Sincere block April designed is a sincerely cute block that’s perfect for beginners. The Nine Patch variation has just the right amount of personality to make it a satisfying sew. You can sew along with Kimberly in today’s video tutorial on YouTube for some tips on putting it together.


Orchard and All Weather Friend make cute blocks! You can visit April’s blog for more details about her block and see her Sewcialites progress!
