Canadian Summer QAL Blue North Strong and Free Block

Welcome to week 7 of the Canadian Summer Quilt Along! This week we have a block pattern designed by Céleste of Meerkat Shweshwe.

Céleste imports Shweshwe fabrics from South Africa and sells them here in Canada. She is my wholesaler for the Shweshwe fabrics I bring into my shop. She sells to both wholesale and retail customers and gives great service!

Here is Céleste’s version of her block “Blue North Strong and Free”

Meerkat Shweshwe is sponsoring a giveaway this week. Post your Blue North Strong and Free block in the hashtag #canadiansummerqal on Instagram and tag @meerkatshweshwe for a chance to win a bundle of four fabrics that Céleste used in her block.

Four fat quarters of Shweshwe fabrics are the prize for this week.

You can download the Blue North Strong and Free block pattern for free from either Céleste’s shop or from Craftsy. Céleste tells a bit about the inspiration for her block inside her block pattern.

Have fun sewing this block! I thought of it as like a Farmer’s Wife block as I was working on it.
