Its Day 6 of my Mystery Sew Along. This week has really flown and I hope you having fun. Its a very easy sewing day today so you will have heaps of time to find more projects to sew this National Sewing Month. Have you looked at FaveQuilts and AllFreeSewing yet? Pop on over for heaps of lovely inspiration :)
The "Homework Assignment" from yesterday was a quick and easy one, so here's a recap:
- 8 x 5 1/2" squares
OK, lets get to today's sewing and you will need the remaining 10 units from Day 1 to complete your block (this bag should now be empty and ready to reuse).
Step 1: Arrange the 10 units, alternating their placement, into two sets of five units as shown in the photo above.
Step 2: Carefully matching the centre seams, sew each set together, along the long sides and pressing seams in the same direction to yield two units which should each measure 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" when complete.
You will need the blue and white unit you made on Day 2 (the one pictured above) to complete the next step.
Step 3: Carefully matching all seams, sew one of these units to the top and bottom of the unit made on Day 2, pressing seams open to yield one block which should measure 5 1/2" square when complete.
Tomorrow we can put this quilt top together but I have one last "Homework Assignment" for you:
You guys have earned a mini pamper this week. You have stuck with me for 6 days, sewn what I told you to sew and been very, very productive. Great job ♥
One more sleep and this mystery project will be revealed, unless of course you have already guessed it but I'm not sure anyone has yet!
Cya tomorrow :)
