Sewing along for FNSI….

I made an early start for FNSI as I had five projects that I have been working on and wanted some finishes..

While visiting my DD somehow some of her UFOs jumped in my bag…

Nice strips of pretty fabrics left from her baby quilt.







They made a lovely  “Quilt of Love”

also a sweet embroidery she had stitched.






I made into a pretty new 12” Mini for my Frame.

There are others but will work on them later..


Next I sewed 6 rows of my "Snowballs and 9 Patches" together..




Slowly growing..


Then blanket stitched around the last March Block for Natures Journey"  SAL



Pleased they are done…..


and Taaaa Dahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

The 1st of 39 blocks for my “Pinata” quilt and I LOVE it…..




sew glad I didn’t through out those scraps…..(read previous post )

Thank you Wendy for getting us together for another great night . Hope you had a lovely evening out..

I will be visiting the other 50 Ladies over the weekend to see what they have worked on…

Off for a coffee now with the ladies ..
