I had planned to get this month’s packages out in the mail today, but I overestimated my speed in sorting out the fabric &, er, underestimated the amount of energy my children would be requiring in our very busy summer, so I will finish up the sorting tonight & get them out tomorrow.
And by “sorting,” I’m talking about this:
All the fabric for my squares comes from my scrap boxes & stash of solids. I will be sending each of you a couple of bundles of colorful strips + a larger piece of ivory solid. I’d like simple blocks (one from each bundle) with the scraps pieced parallel to each other, set in the ivory background. You can sew them all together into a block & then sash them with ivory; you can set them in as stripes with ivory in between some or all of them; you can put them in the middle of the block or wonkily off to one side; you can leave the strips as I’ve sent them or slice & dice to your heart’s content. Just remember to keep them all parallel to each other, please.
I’d like the finished blocks to be 10″-12″ square. Since I’m working with scraps, some bundles are going to be bigger than others, & I am going to be wildly estimating how much ivory fabric to send out, so if you’re coming up with a smaller block, don’t worry, I’ll sash it later.
But first! I will finish all the sorting & get these in the mail!
