Sewcialites Block 25 – Virtue by Bonnie Olaveson

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 #25 this week!

This week’s designer, Bonnie Olaveson is a fabric designer, author, expert quilter, and half of the mother-daughter duo Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics! Bonnie designed Virtue! 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.


Bonnie sewed up her Virtue blocks from her collection Shine On by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics. Visit Bonnie on Instagram, @bonniecottonway for more details about her block!
