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 #6 this week!
This week’s designer, Robin Pickens is an expert quilter and fabric designer for Moda Fabrics. Robin designed the Devoted block which will be a challenging block but rewarding and worth a try. Don’t worry, you can watch Kimberly’s video tutorial on YouTube for some tips on putting it together.
Robin sewed a 3″ block from her collection Thatched by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics. Visit Robin’s blog for more details about her block, sewing process and her fabrics. We love the textures here and how impressive this 3″ block looks.

Kimberly is sewing with the Homestead collection by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabrics. She made her blocks in all three sizes for a fun challenge.
We invited some FQS staffers to join
The suggested fabric requirements and all the block patterns released so far will be posted on the Sewcialites Landing Page so be sure to bookmark it for later reference.
