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 #19 this week!
This week’s designer Lissa Alexander is known by many as ModaLissa, and she is the Marketing Director of Moda Fabrics. Lissa designed Unity! Lissa loves all things scrappy and designed her block to work in “unity” with any fabric selection you choose! Don’t worry if you are a beginner, Kimberly can help you sew this block in today’s video tutorial on YouTube.

Lissa sewed her 9″ Unity block in scraps of Bella Solids by Moda Fabrics from her collection. Lissa is giving us more details about her block on her blog, where she’s also giving away a copy of Scrap School! Visit Lissa on Instagram @modalissa for more details about her block!
