Wishes Sew Along

     Have you see on the Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber that they are doing a free Sew Along in 2014?
It's only 1 block a month and at the end they'll give you the assembly instructions.  I said to myself "how hard can 1 block a month be?".  So, I hemmed and hawed over fabric, pulled one bundle after another down off the shelf.  Then I wondered if doing it in 30's wasn't the way to go....or maybe Thimbleberries?   Geesh, make your mind up girl.....  Well, this afternoon I pulled the bundle of "Minimalista" that I had on the shelf and cut into it.  Lemme tell you...this fabric feels like silk working with it!

This is a picture of the block laid out on my cutting board.....

And now look at the finished block......>

I must have grabbed one unit without paying attention and bang!  it's not assembled correctly, but guess what?  I'm not fixing it.  I want to be sure I have enough fabric to make all 12 blocks and the border units......Besides, I think it looks fine!!!

If you too want to join in and do this Sew Along, just hop on over to the Jolly Jabber and grab your free pattern!!!
