Sew Content

I'm just sewing out my stress.

2011 Project Week 1 January 7, 2011

For the first week I took the easy route for triangles.  I chose the Pinwheel Block.  I started with 5″ squares and drew the lines on them to sew. 

I have tried this with other blocks but haven’t gotten around to actually sewing. 

Lining up with the machine.

From there is was pretty easy.  Cut and re-arrange the blocks.  Don’t forget to press, it’s very easy to have lots of bulk in the corners.

After taking back to the machine and almost messing up the layout, I was able to get it finished.  Maybe I shouldn’t be sewing at 1:30 a.m. 

First Block Done

I could have done better lining up the center and points.  Triangles weren’t so scary this way. 

Could be better...

Here are some of the fabrics that you will see over the next few weeks. 

This was all in my stash.
