FNSI X 2

It is always nice to get organised for FNSI with Wendy and all our online friends..

First I made this small bag

Cleo's Cotton Reel Bag

for these…
008



then finished the 5th block for My Vintage Kitchen BOM from the lovely Jenny.



036


Found the blue gingham in my stash and I like it with the blocks..


next the 4th block for Snapshots -Quilt-A-Long.


4 Snapshot block


I think this little guy needs eyes !!!

Then off to bed…

woke to a wet and miserable day, great to hide in the cave. Spend hours ironing my scraps

021


and cutting them up for 9 patch/snowball blocks 

024


and strips to put into a box for the Piñata blocks


023



In the evening I joined my Northern Hemisphere friends and make some 9 patch/snowball blocks and the 5th Snapshot Block…


032


By the end of the evening my 5th Snapshot Block was complete


5 Snapshot block


and I had enough blocks to do a few more rows for the scrappy quilt.

Thank you Wendy for two productive nights of sewing with friends… Will go see what others have been doing in the next few days….
