This and That... FNSI next week ......

A few weeks ago Jo from ButterZ had some great fabric on her blog I knew would be a perfect backing for a "Long Time" quilt I'm working on..
First Jo kindly checked out the store where she purchased it for me but they had sold out. Then she send me a photo of the salvage edge and I was able to chase the fabric up....
I was delighted when I received the lovely parcel from Spotlight... 

Isn't it just right......

 I have been busy putting the blocks of  Melissa's  "Round About Quilt Along" together... I did find it tricky and you can pick the first two I made as they'er a little wobbly...

Next week we can sew all the these blocks together .. I think six will make a lovely Baby's Quilt.

It's FNSI  next Friday as Wendy has had a very busy week.....

Iv'e got some secret sewing to do and also hope to finish quilting a Super Hero quilt now I have an extra week......

Happy Stitching

Hugz  Maria :)
