Sewcialites Block 9 – Gracious by Vanessa Christenson

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 #9 this week!

This week’s designer, Vanessa Christenson is the wonderful designer behind V & Co. for Moda Fabrics. The Gracious block she designed is a challenging block that will require patience. You’ll want to take your time and pay close attention to your seams for this one. You can sew along with Kimberly in today’s video tutorial on YouTube for some tips on putting it together.
