Woodland Wonderland: Month 1

Wow can you believe it is July already? We re halfway through 2020, I wonder what the next half will bring?
With it being the beginning of July, it means that our Woodland Wonderland Block of the Month has now started. 
If you have joined in and chose the pickup option, your kit is ready and waiting for you. If you chose to have it shipped, they are all packaged up and will be going out in the mail tomorrow morning. 
If you did not sign up there is just 1 spot left so act quickly. You can sign up here, even if you are not local, just choose the pickup option and we will get in touch with you to figure out all the details. 

I have made the blocks for this month already and they are really cute. We are making a total of 6 little blocks this month, 2 mini mushrooms, 1 larger mushroom and 3 Sawtooth Stars. 
The blocks are not difficult though they do contain some pretty tiny pieces. But there is lots of pictures to follow and the instructions are great. 

In this kit only the background needed for this month is included, it doesn't look like a big piece but it is enough if you cut carefully. Save all your uncut pieces for use later on as described in the pattern booklet.

I suggest using a scant 1/4" seam allowance when sewing to be sure your blocks come out to the correct size.
I used the Diagonal Seam Tape from Cluck Cluck Sew for the stitch and flip corners and it worked really well. 
Because the pieces are quite small, I suggest you start cutting with a fresh blade, this will give you a nice crisp clean edge on your pieces. 

Have fun sewing!
