Sew into Solids - Week 5

There has been some wonderful activity in the Sew into Solids Flickr Group if you get a chance, pop over and have a look at some of the wonderful and inspiring pictures in the group.

I finally got my first block sewn together and I’m really pleased with it.  I am noticing that accuracy is just that little bit more important when working with solids and I think I’m going to change methods of making my HST.  These were cut using the Easy Angle Ruler which I love, but I think I really want these to be precise so I think I’ll cut my strips wider and then trim the resulting HST with the Eleanor Burns Triangle Square Up Ruler.

As well as looking at the flickr group, I thought I’d share what some members have been making and their blog posts. 

I hope I haven’t missed anyone…if I have add your link in the comments :o)

I want to thank everyone for the great pictures being posted in the group. Let's keep it going! I'm going to throw a challenge out to you to sew at least one more block towards your project..me included! and get a picture posted in the group by next Monday! :o)

That’s all I have for you this week.  Hopefully I’ve have more than one block to show you next time…Happy Sewing!

Until next time....

You've made me feel better at not joining your group - if accuracy is more important than ever, I'd better stick to prints!

Love your block Jane - I am a big fan of crisp white and red together so I am envious of your colour choices.
