This and That Friday Night Sew In

Last night was Friday Night Sew In.

I sewed a bag for my friend's wheat pack, some siggy blocks
and 10 more QAYG blocks.

Even though I have now made 17 projects with my Strips I still have not put much of a dent in my pile of strips.



  1. Your strips will make something nice

  2. Gosh---ISN'T that true?!?!?! It's quite amazing what can be created with strings! And it's even more amazing that all that fabric gets thrown away by some quilters who don't REALIZE what all can be made!!

    Love the pic!

  3. Good job! I missed another FNSI, and really must get back in the groove. I do have a project in mind to use up some of MY strips, and I'm going to work on it today.

  4. Maria - I love the 'christmas tree' in your border. It is so you.

    Friday night sew in really accomplishes a lot - maybe that's what I need - a forced deadline.

    Hugs - Marie

  5. I want to make a strip quilt bad....I keep saying it, I guess I am going to have got a lot done...I was going to participate, but last night I was just happens....

  6. Looks like you'll be sewing strips for a long time! They are lovely and bright.

  7. How wide are your strips and what length?
    I'm keeping my big scraps/strips and anything too little I give to kindy

  8. I love the quilt as you go blocks...I keep saying I must do some but haven't to date...hugs Khris

  9. Wow - your sewing room looks inviting! Lots of colour! Your blocks are beautiful, and your blog is so gorgeous and bright and inviting! Love it!

    Hugs! Vikki x

  10. what a productive FNSI - well done!
    love the colours that are created with the left over strips - just beautiful

  11. Hi Maria
    You have some beautiful projects ! I agree with you about the left-over pieces. I hate to throw any away. Last Winter I cut up my knit scraps and made two soft pillows for two of my pooches and they really did enjoy them. They act kind of like a bean bag pillow and they can dig and root around in them and get comfy like we humans do. :)

    I was tickled about your sewing projects because when I was working on something 3 nights ago I thought of all you "quilters" because my rotary cutter sure did not last long at all and I wondered how in the world do you all keep your blades sharp or do you just go through a bunch of them

    I even saw a couple of those blade sharpeners and I wondered how good they were? I just hate to throw these blades away ?????

  12. Hello Maria,
    Keep stripping,just love the brightness of it.
    Happy Monday.

  13. Love the stripping I will have to put it on my list to do!!!

  14. What a lovely pile of fabric. Have a great week.

  15. I make myself so mad. I signed up for the sew in and then something came up and I forgot! I have got to get to sewing. I love what all that you got done. You have accomplished a lot.

  16. The strips seem to keep growing, don't they? Your projects have all been lovely and so worth the time.

    I need to make some more siggy blocks and get them in the mail too. It is so much fun to see what comes in.

  17. I love your string neat.
