7 Day Mystery Sew Along- Day 6


Its Day 6 of my Mystery Sew Along. This week has really flown and I hope you having fun. Its a very easy sewing day today so you will have heaps of time to find more projects to sew this National Sewing Month. Have you looked at FaveQuilts and AllFreeSewing yet? Pop on over for heaps of lovely inspiration :)
The "Homework Assignment" from yesterday was a quick and easy one, so here's a recap:
From your white fabric cut:

  • 8 x 5 1/2" squares
We wont be sewing with these today, so pop them straight into a ziplock bag marked Day 6, ready for tomorrow. Its also an ideal time to grab all of your bags and choose a binding fabric, so you are all prepared for the final post tomorrow. Exciting!
OK, lets get to today's sewing and you will need the remaining 10 units from Day 1 to complete your block (this bag should now be empty and ready to reuse).
Step 1: Arrange the 10 units, alternating their placement, into two sets of five units as shown in the photo above.
Step 2: Carefully matching the centre seams, sew each set together, along the long sides and pressing seams in the same direction to yield two units which should each measure 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" when complete.
You will need the blue and white unit you made on Day 2 (the one pictured above) to complete the next step.
Step 3: Carefully matching all seams, sew one of these units to the top and bottom of the unit made on Day 2, pressing seams open to yield one block which should measure 5 1/2" square when complete.
And that's it! Your last block is complete and all of your spare units should now be sewn :)
Tomorrow we can put this quilt top together but I have one last "Homework Assignment" for you:
Sooooo, its not really an assignment, just more of a suggestion to remember to pamper yourself every now and again. I don't know about you but I forget to take time out for myself. A gentle reminder makes all the difference. Print this assignment and leave it on the fridge to remind you to take some time just for you!!!
You guys have earned a mini pamper this week. You have stuck with me for 6 days, sewn what I told you to sew and been very, very productive. Great job ♥
One more sleep and this mystery project will be revealed, unless of course you have already guessed it but I'm not sure anyone has yet!
Cya tomorrow :)
