FNSI for February 2021

 For some time I just haven't felt like sewing sew when Fiona from BubzRugz invited me to sew along with her and friends ( virtually  ) on Thursday I got organised and started to quilt my "Sisters" ...

Then on Friday it was time to join Wendy and 27 others for FNSI , and I'm happy to say with the help of my friends the 'Sisters" are now quilted... 




Just stippled around the white and shadow quilted the Sisters with a Heart in the center.





Now I just need to choose a binding .. Which one do you think ????









Later in the evening when I was digging in the cupboard for another project and this fell out. The ribbing from the bottom of one of hubby's windcheaters, ( don't ask why it was cut off as I don't remember) but for ages I've wanted a cover for my steering wheel. I have bought a few and none suited,



The ribbing made a perfect cover and after hand stitching it on today fits nicely......










Well I must away and see what others have been up to for FNSI... 

Happy stitching and keep well..

Hugs  Maria ❤

  1. Well done! I vote for the first binding fabric, but it is hard to be sure which one matches the colours best just from a photo.

  7. I'm late, but I'd vote for the brightest binding. Well done on the steering wheel cover. My new car, a Toyota also! has a heated steering wheel. I guess you don't have much need for that. LOL! Glad you enjoyed a day of stitching.

  9. Well done on finding your MOJO again, and nice to get a finish or two. The steering wheel cover is a good idea, mine was a tad too hot to hold the other day.

  13. Yay that we sewed together.. maybe we need a challenge to make together.... I am in the minority and like the second binding ... nice a bright with the fabrics the sisters are in...
    Great idea for the steering cover... bits cut off of jackets should never go to waste!

  14. I would probably go with the top binding, you have strong colours in your quilt, so I think it needs a strong binding. But only you will know - it is your quilt :-)

  15. That’s a nice finish for your Sister’s quilt. I really like the idea of a heart. Brilliant idea for your steering wheel too. I can remember having a leather wrap that had to be stitched on years ago.

  16. Nice re-use of the ribbing.

    I vote for the first binding, but I think they all look good, love a stripey binding

  17. I like the binding with the bigger stripes and bolder colors. I have one of those covers for my steering wheel and it really makes a difference!

  18. I just love striped bindings. It is so cute and you chose the perfect one.

    We quilters to keep each other motivated. Aren't you glad they encouraged you toward a finish?
