Sue Daley Round We Go Sew-along Version 1 of Block 2

Sue Daley’s Round We Go Sew-along moves into it’s second month and on to our second block type. It’s a super fun mix of shapes and I’m enjoying looking for fabrics to play with in these shapes. The kick off of month 2 has been delayed from Friday as I’m dealing with ongoing IT issues. Because of this I’m going to make October the same as September and give you all month to get your four blocks done and posted to social media as per the entry details below. I’ll be announcing our first winner this Friday, so be sure to check back to see if you’re won.

Sue’s team has provided a handy video tutorial on how to assemble this block. It’s a great tool for those of us that haven’t worked with these shapes before. Each month I’ll be sharing these video tutorials in the weekly blog posts so you can pick it up at any time and sew along. Don’t forget to check out the hashtag #RoundWeGoSAL on Instagram for some more inspiration.

Sue Daley Assembly for Block 2

The team at Sue Daley Designs have put together this helpful video that shows how they glue the pieces for assembly and then the order in which they are assembled.

We’ll be sharing these videos at the start of each new block release to help you get the most of your EPP adventure!

If you have any questions please leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to answer. Don’t forget to check out YouTube as well, there’s heaps of tutorials on line for English Paper Piecing.

Weekly Task

Each week I’ll ask you to post a photo of one of that month’s blocks but I’m not going to enforce the weekly task for the first month. This means 2 things:

  1. You can join the event at any time prior to the 2nd November (in your timezone) and still be eligible for October’s prize if you meet the criteria, and
  2. You can self pace until the 2nd November.

I’ve decided to work it this way to help people who are coming late (and to compensate for the IT issues I’ve had) to the event and to give you a little more wiggle room when it comes to life getting in the way.

Prizes will be allocated monthly so you can join at the beginning of every month if you want to be in the prize pool.

Winning a Prize

Now I bet you’re wondering how you’ll go about winning a prize, well it’s simple.

To win an monthly prize:

  1. Post 1 photo of the monthly block per week,
  2. Include all the requirements for eligibility (we’ll go into more detail about this in a minute).

Monthly prize winners will be announced on the Friday following the end of a month.

To win the grand prize:

  1. Post a photo of your finished quilt top between 12:01am 1 September 2018 – 11:59pm 30 September 2018 in your timezone,
  2. Include all the requirements for eligibility (we’ll go into more detail about this in a minute).

Your quilt top can be quilted, but it’s not a requirement for prize eligibility.

A Word about Block Type

You only need to post 1 photo of 1 of the monthly block types per week. This means that you’ll end up with 4 individual photos at the end of the month of the four blocks you’ve made that month. Each month will have one block type and you can see what they’ll be by clicking here.

Each Friday AEST I’ll post my weekly block to my blog and social media to act as a reminder for you to get yours in. You’ll have from 12:01am Friday to 11:59pm Thursday each week to post your one block. On the months where there’s 5 weeks in a month we’ll do something a little special.

Eligibility Requirements

To enter the prize pool it’s really simple. All you have to do is:

  1. Use the event hashtag on your photos (the hashtag is #RoundWeGoSAL)
  2. Follow the following Instagram accounts:
