YOU in Joel Dewberry12:45
Oh! Here's a fun fact, we Brits are rubbish at saying Dewberry, we say it Djewberry.
The lovely Kerry from Pennydog Patchwork sent me some beautiful Joel Dewberry Tile flourish during her recent de-stash and I used it to make up my Bag of the Month club pattern for March. Now I'm using up all of the leftovers and scraps, so pretend like you haven't seen this fabric all month when the pattern comes out on 1st March please!
Thomas Knauer from Thomas Knauer Sews put up a challenge on his blog yesterday calling for paper pieced ME & YOU blocks. (I'm not sure if my ampersand is consistent here...) and after checking on his facebook page if it was ok for me to have a go as a very nearly beginner, I got stuck in!
If you want to join in, pop over to his blog to download the templates.
The only paper piecing I've done before is when I tested Sara's Sunrise clutch pattern so I did a bit of brushing up on the ole Youtube and then had a go.
The hardest thing for me about sewing is choosing fabrics, so I went with something I knew went together, but now I need some advice.
Should I have done each letter from different fabrics from the same palette? (Thomas asked for the same palette for each block) Ignore the fact that my Y is back to front (rookie error), can you tell it says the word YOU?
I'm not sure whether to sew these together and call it a block, or start again with different fabrics for each letter...what do you think?
