FNSI - show and tell

It was FNSI and boy, did I have some fun ;-)

I actually started in the afternoon, and cut and sewed and pressed and came out of my room very pleased with my efforts.

Completed items:
my first 6" blocks for the 6 inch swap group - tease photo follows:

block for Sue (no blog) for BSA - tease photo follows:

Sue's block has taken a bit to get started - I was really stumped on fabric for a little while.  But once I decided on fabric, it was full steam ahead ........ the actual sewing took me most of the afternoon - lots of HSTs (28 to be exact!) and I am very pleased with the result - you will have to wait until Sue sees it first  ;-)

block for Tarnyia for QBSA - tease photo follows:
I have always wanted to try this pattern, but you will have to wait until Tarnyia sees it first  :-)

I also made up a test block I was thinking about requesting for future 6" swaps - 6" violet block (same as a previous Block Lotto block) with white background, yellow centre, bright fabric for petals.

I figure if I am going to request it,
I should make sure it can be made easily ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
