Friday Night Sew-In Results

Last night I got all of these fabrics cut to make...

... this quilt. A lot of pieces (240 2 1/2 inch white squares). By the time I was done, it was midnight and I hadn't turned my sewing machine on. That didn't seem right for a Friday Night Sew-In, so I sewed for about a half an hour and...

... completed the first 3 rows. So far I am liking it.

I love the paisley fabrics (this is a Luna Notte jelly roll). 

How I left the remaining rows last night before I went to bed. I moved things closer together so they weren't under the dining room table anymore. I don't want to move the fabrics so I guess I will be working on finishing the top this weekend. Think I need a design wall so I don't have to leave my fabrics on the floor (I cleaned the floor earlier in the day, knowing I was going to do this).

 I also cut the fabrics for this quilt.

Still need to attach the fabrics and I didn't include the birds, as I'm not sure if I am going to add them.   I might put something else there instead. (pattern can be found here).

I also got a little work done on the sock too. Finished the gusset and am now working on the foot. A few more inches and then it will be done.

 Go see what everyone else did last night.


  1. I do like the quilt you're working on... as well as the fabrics you've chosen. Intriguing...

  2. It really does take a lot of time to get the fabrics ready before you sew. But the results are looking great. Nice work!

  3. It really does take quite a bit of time just to get the fabrics cut so I'd still say you had a productive FNSI even if you didn't spend a lot of time actually sewing, I think prep work counts too.

  4. Cutting that many squares takes a lot of time, so I think you were very productive too. I like what you have done so far, looking forward to seeing it progress.

  5. That quilt is going to look fantastic, all the cutting will be worth it!
