Heeeey Sunshine Crew and welcome back to a two week mashup for the Shine quilt sew along. Since we will continue to sew our crazy little improv blocks for this week and the next, I figured you didn't need four separate blog posts on making the same thing.

If you missed any of the added block-making tips from previous posts, definitely check them out! The post from Week 3 should be especially helpful. And if you have no idea what a Suzy Quilts sew along is, this original post will be most enlightening.

LIVE Videos

Every Thursday at 7:30 Central I will go LIVE in the Suzy Quilts Patterns Facebook group and on Instagram. There is a caveat, however. I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and sometimes find it difficult to pull myself together past 6pm. πŸ˜‰

Every week I will try my best to slap on some blush and get perky, but if you are sitting around on your phone, waiting for me to show up and it's after 7:45, just say, "Bless her heart," and picture me curled up on the couch feeling like a bloated gorilla.

Shine Sew Along Week 5 & 6 Tasks

We're still doing the same thing, ya'll! We are making 4 blocks each week for a grand total of 16 blocks after Week 6. Now I don't know about you, but I have had SO MUCH FUN tossing around all of my strips and randomly sewing them together.

I know it's easy to say "random" when truthfully there is some planning behind it, but I can honestly say NONE of my strip sewing was planned. The only thing I made sure not to do was sew two of the same color strips together. Other than that it has been a complete free-for-all – and I've loved it!
