Sewcialites Block 13 – Joy by Susan Ache

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 #13 this week!

This week’s designer is Susan Ache! Susan is a talented quilter, pattern designer and author. Susan designed Joy as an easy block with a mix of Flying Geese units and rectangles. Don’t worry if you are a beginner, Kimberly can help you sew this block today’s video tutorial on YouTube.


Susan sewed in scraps from her stash. She said using a Bloc Loc Ruler helped her with making an accurate block. Visit Susan on Instagram @yardgrl60 for more details about her block!
