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 the last block of the sew along this week! If you’ve been keeping up with the blocks, we have a special finishing prize – read on to find out more!
This week’s designer is Corey Yoder! Corey is a talented quilter and fabric designer for Moda Fabrics! Corey designed Kindness. 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.
Corey sewed up her 3” block using Spring Brook for Moda Fabrics. She noted that starch is going to help everything lay nicely! She also pressed her seams open to help and pinned her intersections. Corey will also be going over her block on her blog, Coriander Quilts. Visit Corey on Instagram @corianderquilts for more details about her block!
