FNSI - progress report

It was another FNSI - they come around so quickly ;)

I did a mix of designing, calculating (blahhh, I hate numbers!) and cutting and this morning I did some sewing :)

Quilt Design Process - Step 2

Quilt Design Process - Step 3

I have been hanging onto these Actil sheets remnants for years, and I managed to come across some more via Facebook Marketplace.  Right place at the right time me thinks!

FNSI | first real sewing for the year!

YAY - I got to spend some time in the sewing room along with some FNSI friends :)

Friday night, I was able to take some time and sort through a few fabrics, and do some cutting in preparation for some quilt blocks for CHERISH do. Good Stitches charity bee.

Our first block for the year, is a 'skateboard' block for Jackie ............ I had to sort through quite a bit of my fabric stash, as the colour selections were a mix of blues &/or greens for an older boy ...... my stash is decidedly girly, and most certainly very few greens that weren't leaves (I realise my stash is quite heavy on the florals LOL)

Any way, after taking forever to decide what fabrics to use, after the cutting, I decided leave it to the weekend to finish sewing.


I was also happy to spend some 'cyber' time with my quilty friends as part of Cynthia's Ark Project Uninterrupted 

must go now, time for tea!  Hope you all had a great weekend, I know I did!

FNwF & CHERISH do. Good Stitches - October & November blocks

Well, where did the last two months go?   Here are my blocks for October Cherish do. Good Stitches quilting bee.

Blue-Grey Cross

For November, I managed to get some time in the sewing room, in between preparing for my camera club AGM & end of year Trophy presentation night.  I am no longer Secretary for my camera club, so hopefully I will be able to spend more time next year out and about actually taking photos!

Tic Tac Toe blockI  have very little low volume fabrics in my stash, and had an involuntary groan when I saw our Quilter's selection of block for November.  I did intend to get out and purchase some fabrics, but as is the case with most quilters, a very generous offer of low volume 5" squares was made by our Quilter, Jackie, which I accepted and here are my blocks, all done and dusted!

I had done my preparation during the week, and intended to finish and get them in the post by the end of the week, but you know how it goes ....... best laid plans and all that!

It has been ridiculously hot here in Adelaide - whatever happened to the beautiful 22-25C days in the lead up to January?  Nope, bam, straight into 38C!  Oh, how I hate the heat!

I used the final FNwF for 2018 to sew my rows together (there was a bit of reverse sewing, as I had an issue with tension on my machine).  It was nice to be sewing with my quilty friends again, even if it was only in spirit :)

Now to get my blocks in the post!
