Friday Night Sew In

I had very high hopes for myself for this FNSI. I worked and worked and worked. And I have darn little to show for it. My original plan was to cut and sew the bindings onto a HUGE quilt I just made. What I forgot was that I went to a retreat this weekend and I had not yet unpacked (lazy girl!).  I had a very clean sewing table but a very messy ironing table and no sewing machine or tools in sight.  WAH!

Here is what I did get done:

Binding cut:

A gazillion bonus triangles paired up and sorted:

And several alternate blocks made for my niece's quilt:

Those dark red/rose squares are bugging me.  I may need to pick them out and put in some calmer ones.  I'll make a few more with a broader range of reds and see how I like them.

  1. Wow... you got a LOT done... Loving those stars... mebbe the reds will come together if you make more of those blocks...

  2. Even if you didn't get finished what you'd planned on doing, you still got a lot done and I'd say that's a successful FNSI.
