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
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.
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..
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.

And there is
our simple Unit 2. Down Below I want you to Share a photo of your block or
group of blocks, it's so fun to see all the ones you make!
It has either
been WAY windy, or rained every single time I tried to go outside to take a
group photo. So here are my Hometown Girl blocks all pinned up together!
I'm SURE I'll have a nice day soon, then I'll hang them outside for a photo
