Sewcialites – Finishing Your Quilt!

Welcome back to the Sewcialites Quilt Along! Now it’s time to assemble our quilts. This week, we are sewing up our quilt top with the Finishing Pattern! The free pattern provides instructions for the setting blocks and the final block assembly for the quilt top. If you’ve been keeping up with the blocks, we have a special finishing prize! Read on to find out more…

If you’re ready to see how we finished our Sewcialites Quilts, follow along with Kimberly for a tutorial in today’s video on the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube channel.


Sewcialites Quilt Along

Our FQS Staffers have been sewing along with us, and WOW their quilts look amazing, don’t you think? Two of Kimberly’s finished Sewcialites Quilts will be auctioned to raise money for Serendipity Charity Quilt Along benefiting Make-a-Wish, starting on July 15. We’ll share the details here on the blog when it starts!

To see all the block patterns and tutorials, visit the Sewcialites Landing Page.

Bonus Quilt Layouts

When it comes to putting all the blocks into a quilt top, you can use any number of patterns, or settings as they’re called, to arrange your blocks. Some of the designers and quilters joining us for Sewcialites came up with their own creative layouts. Here are just a few of them!

If you’ve been sewing along all this time here’s a little extra motivation to finish that quilt top and show it off! You can enter to win a $500, $200 or $50 gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop when you share a photo of your completed Sewcialites quilt top (it can be quilted and bound or not) on Instagram with the hashtag #SewcialitesQAL and make sure to tag @fatquartershop.

One entry per person. If you post two quilts, we’ll filter for one entry. 

You can use an alternate setting different from ours as long as there are 30 or more Sewcialites pattern blocks included. 

Post your photo by midnight on Friday, July 16. We’ll pick a winner and announce them on Instagram Monday, July 19. Make sure your account is public so we can see it.
