This week we threw everyone a bit of a curve ball to keep you on your toes and included Belle, the first of the Y-Seam blocks. It has been so great to see everyone get in and make this block their own. I’ve loved reading about people conquering their fears and trying new ways to make the block. There’s been so many fabulous Belle’s made that it’s making me contemplate making more versions so I can work on my Y-seams. We followed Belle up with Coral, a great version of the traditional patchwork star. This block was a nice change of pace after Belle and it’s a great example of how we’ve planned the sew-along. We’re sharing the blocks in a specific order to help you learn, grow, get excited, power through your frustrations and just have something fun each week to look forward to.
I’ve really loved seeing all the blocks that are being linked up and this week I’ve picked another 10 examples of blocks shared: 1. Night Quilter 2. Bonjour Quilts 3. @spetzie 4. The Patchsmith 5. jen-g-nj02 6. @farahlin_ 7. Lighthouse Lane Designs 8. Handmade by Carole Carr 9. The Quietly Quirky Quilter 10. Addy Lou
I’m just loving the variations in the blocks and the different ways in which people are approaching their fabric selection and techniques. Every week there’s a big collection of blocks that I would gladly add to my own private collection and I’m sure this week is going to be no different. So without further ado, let’s get to the sew and tell!
