Friday Night Sew-In Results with a Finish!

Last night was the first Friday night sew-in of the year. I usually get some knitting done while watching a movie with my family every Friday evening, but this time I got some quilting done too.

 This is my quilt for the UFO Challenge hosted by Judy. I finished quilting it last night.

 I love the wavy lines on the brown squares.

 Very tiny free motion to make the baskets pop in the center square.

 The backing fabric. More baskets!  I love this quilt!. Hopefully I can find some time to finish it this weekend.

 My other goal for last night was to finish testing a pattern for my sister. Obviously I am not allowed to show the finished quilt top, but it is complete and I love it too.

 Here are the leftover half square triangle blocks. I'll play with those later.

 Once I was done quilting for the night, I returned to knitting since I was really close to finishing this scarf. And I finished it! This will be a gift for someone this Christmas. Yes, you read that right. I have one Christmas present done for 2011. I'm very happy about that.

And since I finished one thing, I started another. I cast on a pair of socks for my sister, a birthday present for next month. She picked the yarn so it isn't a big surprise.

Go check out Heidi's blog and see what everyone else did last night. I hope the next FNSI is as productive as this one.

  2. Wow, tiny little stipples in those blocks. Pretty amazing!

    Love the scarf. Must be a nice feeling to know you have a start on Christmas gifts already. I'm not even sure I finished all of last year's gifts haha.
