So which block did you choose- #1407a or #1401? I choose #1407a. I thought about doing an alternative coloring from the way the block appeared in BlockBase, but I just couldn’t resist those little spools! I may have gotten a little crazy with my fabric choices, but it’s nice to see some bright colors on these dreary winter days.

BlockBase Sew Along – Block 8

Welcome to Block 8 of the sew along! This time I’m going to give you a choice between two blocks: Block #1407a OR Block #1401 Essentially these two blocks look the same. But you’ll notice that the first block has set-in seams, while the second does not (therefore making it easier to piece!). However, I’m not just giving you the option to construct this block in a two different ways, I’m using this as an opportunity to show you a nifty tool in Block Base! *Remember, if you’re keeping all your sew along blocks in the same project, open the project now so you can add this new block.* Open BlockBase and click the Search by Number tool. Type in 1407a and click Search. The block appears on the Search Results tab. Now we’re going to try out a tool we haven’t used yet during the sew along. Click on
