March Stitch Along - week 2 instructions
How did you get on with the free form cutting? Jennifer joined in the challenge and shared a couple of photos of what she did.
Rules for Week Two
Start out by auditioning your pieces. Swap them around and use your color tones to come up with something looking interesting rather than just a mish-mash of pieces. You can do this on your design wall, on the floor or your cutting mat. You can cut more pieces if you need too.
Remember to include your contrast fabric too, but just use it sparingly. Small amounts dotted around or one, maybe two thin strips from side to side.
When you see two pieces you think look good together, join them. Audition again as you stitch the pieces together to create a 15" square.
Tip: no need to restrict yourself to 1/4" seams. It really doesn't matter what size they are for this.
Let's see how you get on by posting a picture which I'll add to next week's instructions.... and remember, if you have curved seams, you may need to snip the seam allowance a little to help keep the seam laying flat.
