Good Morning my Crochet Sew Along Friends!
We are so excited to be moving on to our “next step” today!
There are some seriously yummy “fabric pulls” happening over on the #crochetsewalong hashtag… lots of you have jumped on board in the last few days! Have you taken a look? If not, you definitely will want to. They are inspiring and it is so much fun to see what everyone else is choosing! Comment on each other’s posts and let’s create a little Crochet Sew Along community together! And if you haven’t had a chance to do it yet, no worries at all, join us anytime at any phase of the SEW ALONG this summer. There is nothing as “too late to join” around here!
Here are just a few of the “fabric pulls”…
For our winner of the the prize of the Fat Quarter Shop gift card [HERE is their link if you need to go shopping for some more Fig Tree fabric- or any other kind of fabric for that matter :-)] for the first week, go take a look at Instagram by noon today, Friday! We will also announce what the next prize will be for this week at the same time.
For those of you who are wondering what the prizes are all about… its just a fun way to get excited about the process and to keep ourselves motivated. We all know how easy it is for life to get in the way of our sewing projects and how overwhelming it can all get sometimes and especially how fun it is to start something new but then the motivations sometimes wanes in the middle of the project and we never finish! So the prizes each week are a way to help with our motivation to keep moving forward. That’s it… that and its always fun to have a chance to win something!
Today we are going to officially start cutting for our Crochet pattern. If you are following our schedule, you have a full week to do this so no worries… or as the kids say these days… YOU GOT THIS. And its totally your call if you want to cut the entire quilt or just one block at a time!
These are the things you will want to do/things to think about for this next step of the project:
If you have any questions at all about this step, please ask them below. Let’s pretend that we are in class together and you are asking me to help you choose fabrics. If you want my opinion, I can totally give it! This is the best place for me to answer and all CROCHET SEW ALONG questions. So please feel free to ask them!!
