It's week TWELVE and another block release day of the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew-along! Sharon Holland and I are co-hosting this community sew-along now through early August and as usual, I like to begin each Wednesday by reminding folks just learning about the bee that it's never too late to jump in! We still have quite a few new participants joining us each week, the blocks typically take about an hour, so feel free to join us and play catch-up at anytime! I also love to encourage you all to keep posting to Instagram with #SewcialBeeSampler tagging @sharonhollanddesigns and myself @maureencracknell when you post anything SBS so we can both see and easily keep track of all your wonderful bee posts. We'll continue to try our best to visit with all who join the sew along. We're having so much fun!
Today's free download is for block #12: Right Angle. I'll be sure to add this new pattern to my Sewcial Bee Sampler Page, so those of you just discovering our bee can find everything you need to begin right in one place! Simply click on the link or the image below for direct access to this week's new SBS pattern!
For my Right Angle block, once again I'm working to bring in new prints to add to my Sampler pulling from all of my collections ~ This week all three are from my newest collection for AGF, Garden Dreamer. The lovely, sunny Spring weather we've had the past couple of days definitely inspired this pretty fabric pull!
I snapped the photo below just before adding my linen border. I'm without a design wall, so now that we're into row three, each week I'm laying out my blocks to mostly make sure the colors I choose are spread out evenly. In the early weeks of the SBS, I kept reaching for blues and yellows without noticing, so I'm making sure to make more colorful choices from now on. I love how cute this Right Angle block is before the border!
The combination of the happy, Kelly green and the bright white was a great addition to the blocks I've made so far. I can't believe we're almost halfway through the SBS already!
I'm excited to see the Right Angle blocks you'll make this week! Be sure to visit Sharon's blog today to see her beautiful versions, and to stop back for details on how to enter this week's Sewcial Bee Giveaway Friday with our wonderful sponsor The Knotted Thread!
Happy SBS sewing! ♡ Maureen
