FNSI Doubled.


For FNSI I decided to try and get one of my UFO’s made and empty one of my boxes. The project I chose I had worked on at Patch. Maybe I can get it finished.

I stitched and stitched

and by midnight I had a lot of the quilt top done

BUT realised I still had to find the requirements for a workshop I was going to in the morning. So I stopped sewing.


004    These are my friends from Patch all busy working on the project. Applique using freezer paper.

 We were all pleased with the blocks we worked on.
Tonight I continued my FNSI with all the ladies overseas. I still did not finish my quilt top.

Will work on it again tomorrow.

It was fun doing a DOUBLE FNSI with you all.

  3. Aren't you the lucky one - Double FNSI! I haven't tried applique using freezer paper, so I'll have to look for a tutorial. THe block you made is beautiful! As is your other colorful quilt. Keep on stitching.

  6. You got an awful lot done Maria. The applique flowers look great. I was going to join in on the FNSI but realised we had tickets to the theatre. Hopefully I can join in next time!

  9. Phew.. there is no way I could keep up that pace.... I love the quilt you are making ... what a sweet pattern and I am intrigued with the applique being finished off my machine that way.... and I LOVE your UFO boxes.... I think I need some like that..... (instead of cheap plastic ones)

  14. Those appliques are just amazing!! I think the FNSI should be UFOs. That would be fun and get us to work on half done projects.

  15. I really like the colours in the quilt you're working on. It's going to be really pretty once you're finished.

    And those applique blocks... all I can say is WOW! I can sure tell why everyone was so pleased with them.
