Good morning! Are you ready for some more sewing? Did you get all your pieces cut last week? I realized when I was sewing up my clue this weekend that I forgot to list the accent fabric on last weeks clue. You can click here to download Mystery Mondays #8 Part 5 again or just grab a large scrap and cut (5) 1 1/2" accent squares and label them (N).
We will be sewing up some of the sashing units today.

Here are my pieces all cut and ready to sew!
Start with drawing a line of the back of the two larger background squares. Layer the background squares with the the main squares.Stitch on both sides of the line.Cut squares in half and press.
Now draw a line across two the squares again.
You now have four hour glass blocks.
I pressed toward the blue and then the final seam I pressed open. Lots less bulk and it helps to line up the centers.
Now stitch (4) background squares together with (5) accent squares to form a 9-patch block.
Again I pressed toward the darker color and pressed the final seams open. This is my favorite way to press...with the final seams open!
Here are the blocks for the week~
