Hey friends! How's everyone's week going? I've been doing very little sewing this week... I appear to have caught the swimming bug, if that is a thing... And I'm loving it. But it doesn't half tire me out, so all I'm really good for of an evening is a bit of knitting and watching crap on the telly.
Aaaaaaanyway, I'm here to tell you about the Simply Solids sew along!
Who else is in the sew solids crew? It's such a brilliant idea; a monthly parcel of loveliness turning up on your doorstep. I joined because, as anyone who regularly reads this blog know, I'm a ho for a print. I don't use solids that much, mostly because I don't buy them, because I never know where to start! This way, the hard part is done for me!
So Mrs Simply Solids, Justine, and I have been working away at a pattern to use up the lovely rainbow of solids that will be arriving over the year... And here it is, Stellar:
And here are my first blocks:
I'm making mine a little differently, and using a print for the centre square. Because, you know... I couldn't not. And because it's so much fun picking something the coordinates with each of the solids.
This month was interesting for me because purple is the least represented colour in my stash. I'm super excited to start on next months blocks... Greens! Lovely!
You can download the pattern from the Simply Solids website today!
