FNSI - 18th February 2011 - blocks, borders & hearts completed

It was Friday Night Sew In yesterday.  It is so good to have a designated day to stop everything else and sew.  In preparation, I have been shopping and got some more material and new threads - I am a Gütermann convert!  I tried this thread for the first time over Christmas and I am impressed!  so little fluff ;-)

I must confess, I was behind in my block swaps - I was having difficulty picking my fabrics for one of the blocks - no matter what I tried, I was not happy ;-(

After several visits to Spotlight, I came across some fabric that I think my swap partner will be happy with.

So I don't spoil the surprise for my partners, I will only post a snippet of the blocks I completed today.

First up, my block for Theresa, my February partner for Block Swap Adventure.

Next up is a block for Shauna, my February partner for Christmas Block Swap

Ladies, your blocks will be in the mail on Monday, with my apologies for taking so long.

I was able to add the borders to my black & white log cabin quilt

Next I got to make up another string heart block for block lotto

All in all, a very successful FNSI - which actually lasted most of the day


  1. I love the log cabin! So hard to believe that I'm just starting my Friday night and you are already in tomorrow!

  2. LOL - yes, it is 8.30 am Saturday for me ;-)

  3. Great work Cathy. I love your quilt. Black and white always looks stunning.You did a nice job of arranging the log cabin blocks too. Congrats. :)

  4. Wow you got a lot done! Love the log cabin, it's so dramatic! My Friday night sew in turned into a 'snore-in' - I was so tired from the week I fell asleep on the lounge. Hopefully I can sneak in a few hours this afternoon.

  5. You sure got a lot done. Your log cabin quilt is amazing!

  6. Your're so lucky to be able to stretch FNSI out for a lot of the day! And you accomplished so much! Everything is lovely, but I really admire the string heart blocks.
