Oh, I’ve been having fun with my hexies, deliciously so. . .but as the opening song for Sesame Street sounded and I watched as the nippers settled. . .I almost begrudgingly put down my hexies and got to cutting some fabric for the Craftsy BOM I’m taking part in.
Cutting went smoothly and I was even able to get a little sewing in.
Then I got sidetracked and had to do some frogging:
But it all worked out in the end.
This is the first block in the BOM I’m taking part in. This is a free one with Craftsy and I am really enjoying it so far. The instructor Laura Nownes is knowledgeable quick to share her experience and I’m confident that I will learn quit a bit. I believe I already have:
1. Laura reviewed how to prepare your fabric for cutting, and actually cut
2. Advised to omit the back stitching by keeping a shorter stitch length, Laura suggests 2.5, my machine defaults to 2.4 so I’m golden.
3. How to chain piece a log cabin block, which is the first block in the sampler
I’m liking my ‘safe’ colour selection. let the focus be the blocks.
