My Hometown Charm sew along is a unit every other week, and we are now on Unit #2! I LOVE to make a quilts with others, to sew along and share as we go. It so great to see your versions of my designs!. AND it's motivating to know that we are sewing as a club.. fun fun fun!
I am working us roughly across a row. We did the Orange peel block first, which was multiple blocks.
Now we'll do the Churn Dash Star, a nice fun .. BIG block!
You can sew ahead, i know sometimes we get on a roll.. that's awesome if you do!
My Sew Alongs are designed to let you step out of your busy life, pick a section of a quilt and accomplish JUST that one piece. It's a GREAT feeling to select just a single unit to make with no expectation that more HAS to be done right now.
I highly recommend that you do the bottom and right rectangles now. Make it part of this block. That way when we do the row it's already done.. perfect!
TIP - if you are using a directional print, like my words, i lay out ALL the pieces before sewing. That way I know they are going the correct direction. Then I carefully pick them up to sew.
