FNSI July 2014

Here we are at FNSI. Hope all you enjoyed some sewing last night.
Here are some UFO's I was working on.
1. A pillow for DH threater room which was inspired form this coffee cup in the fore ground.

2. Some samples of modern blocks for a quilt for my Mum(
Not sure if my sewing is up to Mum standards! The quilt has a great beachy feel, which sums up Mum's home.

All Wrapped up

Had a great PJ day today! It was very productive. The quilt was about a quater done this morning & now ready for the post. What do you all think.

Ready for Dance costumes time again! Hugs Sandra

SunKissed Mini Jelly Race

Have been wanting to do a Jelly Roll Race for a while.
So I decided to do a Mini one with the left overs of a Moda SunKissed by Sweetwater.
It finished up as 36"x51" a nice baby quilt size.
Just needs to be sandwiched and binding done in more left overs, then it will be off to England for its new home.

We had a beautiful sunkissed today, so Squid2 & I got some weeding done.

Have a great day all.
Hugs Sandra

Fnwfs and a great finish

One of these great nights always comes up when I have something that needs finishing.
Or is that just I have soooo many things going on and it is the best way to set time aside to do them.

Front panel
Just took these photos of Oliver's quilt and the heavens opened.
This is the fence where the photo was taken below.

The West hasn't been this wet in the winter in years love it. Can go and sew and not feel guilty about being outside. Luv Sandra

All Done

Last night I put in a late one (1am) to get quilting finished. It was freezing at 3 deg C when I went to bed & it felt very bit of like it.
The quilting was nothing special just ditched around the tone on tone blocks.
Today I started & finished the binding, just in time to give it to my BFF tomorrow.
Sure she will love to cuddle up to it in this weather.
Thanks Mum for all your help. Love Sandra

Mum & I have been really moving along with this quilt.
My Grandmothers machine has been helping us put it together.
Here is the boarder Mum has put together.

What do you think of the progress?

FNSI with Mum

I had my favourite friend to do FNSI with this Friday.
MUM :-)
So with a friends Bday on the horizon (next week) i set to work on a new quilt.

Mum did a great job striping.
After putting together 39 x 6.5" blocks over the last two nights it is time for an early night.
I have also trying to finish the little boys quilt which was started earlier this year.
The top & backing are now done maybe I can get Mum to help me.

Lets see what else I can get done while Mums visiting!
