Sewcialites Block 23 – Steadfast by Sherri McConnell

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 #23 this week!

This week’s designer, Sherri McConnell is an expert quilter, author, and podcaster and is one half of the duo Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. Sherri designed this cute beginner-friendly block Steadfast! If you’re ready to make this block, follow along with Kimberly for a tutorial in today’s video on the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube channel.
