FNSI X 2

It was sew nice to find a flimsy I had started some time ago, get it sandwiched and then quilt along with Wendy for FNSI and enjoy sewing again.... thanks Wendy....

Working on something different and joining others must have done the trick for my mojo to return. Did a lot of the quilting Friday night and completed it on Saturday night. Now to finish the binding...




Also made two "Maple Leaf" blocks to send to Canada for the dear folks who lost everything in the HUGE fires...





Sue from  Super Mom -No Cape posted a fabulous tutorial on her blog to make the Maple Leaf and the address of where to send the blocks..


then sat and relaxed while doing some stitching on this SS Block....

















This is the next block....PP and sew many tiny pieces as the block is 6 1/2 " finish .. Not sure if I will tackle it ???????



Off to see what the other ladies made for FNSI .

Happy Stitching..

  5. Yay! Mr. Mojo is back! Several people are deciding to try to applique that dress instead of PP. I'm not very good at PP. Thanks for the link for the maple leaves for Canada.

  8. So great you had such fun and were so productive on Friday night :) Love the cheery dotty quilt! Great idea about the Maple leaf blocks :) Gorgeous stitching for SS. Hmm yes tricky PP block, take it slow and I'm sure you'll get there, or do as Sunny suggests and applique :)

  10. You are so sweet to make maple leaf blocks for the fire victims! Looks like you'll need a lot of patience to PP that block! It's always good to challenge ourselves a little! Go ahead and give it a try! XO

  11. So good to see the projects coming together. I love that stitching project you are working on. The paper pieced block looks awfully cute. Sometimes those pieces are soooo tiny in them.

  12. Oh wow, that next SS block looks painstaking... I bet you would do a great job of it Maria if you took it on.
    So glad to see you have some returned sewing interest, the quilt is such cheery colours, what colour will you bind with?
