Sew Much Fun Blog Tour - Bobbins Block
I've been enjoying the challenge of designing themed blocks this summer, so I decided to join another blog hop, the Sew Much Fun Tour.
Each week a new pattern is released by a different designer (although there are a few doubles), for a collection of 52 patterns over the course of a year.
My first design (yes, I will have a second one in February) is a stack of bobbins. I'm forever playing bobbin chicken with my sewing machine, so this is a set of fully wound bobbins that will never run out :-)
This is a 6" block (6.5" including the seam allowance), so there are a few skinny bits for the tops and bottoms of the bobbins. I'd recommend this block for adventurous beginners, or more advanced FPPers. If you are neither of those, or simply dislike fiddly bits, you can also easily scale this up by enlarging the templates on a photocopier.
As always, my block colouring is just a suggestion, so here are a few more colour options to kickstart your imagination.
To download your free* Bobbins block, just enter your name and email address in the form below and an email with the download link will be sent straight to your inbox. Make sure to check your spam folder, too, if it doesn't show up in a few minutes.
To see everything going on for the Sew Much Fun tour, head to the Tour home base at https://blockofthemo.com/sewmuchfun/ where you can see all the past and current blocks and sign up for emails, and join the Facebook group to see what everyone has been making and share your own finished blocks. I look forward to seeing Bobbins popping up there ;-)
Don't forget to check out these recent blocks...
... and head to these upcoming ones in the next couple of weeks.
