I am obviously easily side-tracked because over the next few days, I kept returning to them and eventually ended up with this.
I sewed four of the squares together to make a (wait for it) 4-patch square.
Then I decided to sash them in either a variety of shot cottons, dotty or striped fabric.
There was no real master plan.
I was just having fun faffing. (I've linked that last word because according to comments left on my IG post, Americans do it but don't know what it's called).
I added a couple of borders; one skinny, one not so skinny, and called it done.
Completely love the backing fabric.
Completely forgot I had it until I started rootling.
Yesterday, my first Massdrop purchase arrived - a selection of Tulip needles.
I'd heard only good things about Tulip needles (they're a Japanese brand) and I was keen to try them out.
Nice packaging but for $35 this is what I got.
I'm not sure if that constitutes good value - which is what Massdrop is supposed to be all about. I used one of the generic sewing needles (purple label) to sew the binding down. Initial thoughts are the needle is super smooth, felt good quality but didn't feel as delicately sharp at picking up a tiny bit of fabric. Several times I found I'd gone through to the front. It's early days though and I haven't tried them all yet. Would be interested to hear if anyone else has used this brand before.
