We have a fun new block in the Sewcialites 2 sew along! This is the Patchy Days Block and it is the Sewcialites 2 Sew Along Block 3!
The Patchy Days Block is designed By Jackie McDonald. It’s a really fun block to put together! The Sewcialites 2 is a free quilt along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. The blocks are all designed by different designers so the finished quilt is a really fun sampler design.
I am sewing along with my Daisy Fields collection and I am making up the 3″ and the 9″ finished blocks. I’m excited to have two different sizes of the same quilt! I am using the Scattered Hexie print in Sand Dollar as the background. The little hexies have a gold shimmer, so the quilt blocks have a fun sparkle.
Sewcialites 2 Sew Along Block 3
As with my other blocks, I sewed the 9″ version first. It’s almost a practice block since the pieces are easier to work with a little larger. I found that for the 3″ version pressing the seams open helped, and I also used starch to give the pieces more stability.
You can find the free pattern for the block on the Fat Quarter Shop Blog. Click here for the pattern!
Here are my other blocks so far in the sew along:
- Block 1 – Perennial Block (my block!)
- Block 2 – Tussy Mussy Block
