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 #35 this week!
This week’s designer is Anne Sutton, a Moda fabric designer who brings Christmas cheer to us all year long with her beautiful fabrics. Her long-awaited winter collection, Crystal Lane, is now available for reservation! Anne designed the Compassion block! 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.
Anne sewed up her Compassion block with Porcelain by 3 Sisters! She made all three sizes of the Compassion block, but her favorite is the 6″ block (she collects them!). This block is an easy one, and Anne recommends thoroughly starching and pressing your fabric before you cut it because starch helps to prevent any raveling and it gives the fabric more body. Visit Anne at @bunnyhilldesigns for more details about her block!
