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 #12 this week!
This week’s designer is Camille Roskelley! Camille is the amazing designer behind Thimble Blossoms. Camille designed the Faithful block as a challenging block using a flying geese technique with four patch units. Don’t worry if you are a beginner, Kimberly can help you sew this block today’s video tutorial on YouTube.
Camille sewed in her collection Sunday Stroll by Bonnie & Camille for Moda fabrics. Visit Camille on Instagram for more details about her block!

Watched your video this am. I have never seen opening the seams on the flying geese block before….always amazed at your perfect sewing. Thanks.
This block is gorgeous! It looks deceptively easy. After watching the livestream I want to make it now but I’m so far behind on my other projects. I’m printing them up for my notebook & might make this block alone because it’s awesome! Thanks FQS for all the hard work to make us happy! 💘 😻 💜 💛
