sewing ,sewing and FnwFs

About 8 weeks ago a lovely bundle of fabrics called "Manderley" by Franny & Jane arrived that I had bought to make a quilt for a special birthday


and I  also purchased the pattern "Crashing Waves".
The birthday isn't till NEXT November, sew plenty of time to get it made...or sew I thought until this arrived in the mail..


Ekkk! only 6 weeks now to make the quilt.. sew while I was in the Big Smoke I sorted the fabrics and started cutting...















and got a few rows sewn..












last night I finally got the flimsy done after spending every free moment sewing...


went to Patch to pin it today and was sew annoyed when pricked my finger... thankfully I found a bandaid and I could finish pinning...


Sew tonight I am going to be quilting with  Cheryll and other ladies for FnwFs ...You could still join us by going over HERE......



Happy Stitching...

Hugz  Maria :)

  3. This is amazing! The lines look like curved but probably aren't. I like how the colours blend. Great job!

  4. GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Pouring it on, aren't you gal?????????????? It will make a special gift- I bet not many gals get gifts that special-that some one so talented has poured her time and knowledge and love into? Sorry about the prick- thank goodness it did not "rain" all over your project! ~smile~ Gotta remember those things are sharp and they say that Our "Mature" skin gets thinner as we "mature" -but who wants to listen to them???? LOL
