FnwFs plus SnwFs

Early yesterday evening I sat down and joined Cheryll and friends for FnwFs.......
I decided to work on my " Sunday Stitchers" No 2 Challenge ...  Quilt Aid Blocks which I started way back in 2009..



First I needed to finish the buttonhole stitching around the applique on the blocks.














Which took a few hours and then  I cut some sashing and started to join the blocks together...








Because I had made some of the blocks into cushions ages ago I only had six blocks left and after sewing on the sashing it was still quite small sew I cut up the remaining fabrics from the blocks to make a Piano Key border...


 I sewed them together and then it was time for bed . As I was really enjoying putting this flimsy together decided I'd join our friends from the Northern Hemisphere for another night of sewing along for SnwFs

Saturday....

This afternoon I got all the piano keys sewn together for the sides ,top and bottom of the flimsy...
After dinner I got the borders sewn on ......


It now measures 39 1/2" by 53 1/2 " , a good lap size and i'm really happy with it.... Maybe I can pop down to Patch tomorrow and sandwich and pin it !

Before calling it a night I made a binding for the "Baby Beach Ball" quilt. Now I can get it finished ...


Must away now and tidy the Cave a little.....

Happy Stitching

HUgs  Maria 😊

  19. Just catching up on all of your posts here, Maria. This one turned out so nicely and it makes a great lap quilt. Do you still have the cushions? Your Brutus is also a wonderful finish.

    Your quilt hanging looked like it went really well. You had such a big location to hang all of those gorgeous quilts. Those samplers look superb! I'll bet it was a huge success. I especially liked those darling flowers. I don't think we have such colorful bottles here. That was so clever.

  20. What a good way to use up all your fabric. Is buttonhole stitching essentially the stitching that is around a buttonhole, but you're not making the buttonhole? (If that makes sense!). I love the Baby Beach Ball quilt binding - so bright!
