The Avenue sew along starts on Wednesday 25th August, so now is the time to get prepared!
There is a short video talking about the sewalong and what we will be doing… check it out here
I have been making up my blocks this week (I need to be a bit ahead of everyone else!) and they are looking so gorgeous….. loving my fabric choices!
So it is time for you to start getting your pattern and templates in order….. and then deciding on what fabrics you would like to use.. maybe you want to do something a bit different than the cover version like Susan Kelly did over on Instagram!
Doesn’t it just look amazing in those blues/navys?! It is seriously making me think about doing a second version and I haven’t even finished the first!
And here is the schedule for the sewalong
