Let the sewing fun begin :)
Did you cut all your fabric or just a bit to get you started on the first block or two? I saw the first projects pop up on Instagram. So fun! I will link them further down…
The prompt for this week is of course to start sewing and take a pictures of your progress. Whether you work in blocks or sew all the units first… Just finish about a quarter!
This post is part of the Modern Tiles Sew Along! See all posts.
This week’s progress
I love to work in batches when I do FPP – chain piecing style – I decided to finish all FPP units for our second week in this Sew Along.
The goal ist to finish a ¼ of the blocks – or any equivalent in sewing. Do whatever makes the most sense for your sewing style! Work in blocks, in units…
Finishing all FPP units probably brought me a bit over that goal line, but as I am not the biggest fan of applique, I now have enough leeway for next week’s task – finishing the applique units. An appearingly smaller goal but as big for me as the other ;)
My Instagram Highlights
A few highlights from the #ModernTilesSewAlong on Instagram. Look around, like and comment!
A beautiful fabric pull inspired by Barcelona tiles – if I remember correctly from the stories ;)
And this masculine, modern but also very traditional version in grey and red. Love the picture idea too!
And a very bold design in contrast.
Isn’t it awesome to see all the different ideas? I am amazed with all your creative pulls and concepts!
Also I want to give a shout out to our sponsors. They are the ones that make the prizes for you at the end of the Sew Along possible. This week’s short profile:
