Friday Night Sew In Results

It's been a long time since I've participated in Friday Night Sew In but after spending last night at the sewing machine and ironing and cutting boards I thought I'd check if FNSI was still going on. Lucky for me I found it's new temporary home on Wendy's blog, Sugarlane Quilts. So here's what I was up to last night.

I've been working on cutting up my scraps into different size squares to make quilts for charity. These are my 2 inch squares that had been pieced into pairs. Last night I turned them into 4 patches. Here they are before being ironed.

There are 85 four patches in all. They'll make a good start. I also cut up some more scraps into 2 inch, 3 inch and 4.5 inch squares.

I took these two orphan blocks from a quilt top that I still need to quilt and turned them into potholders. They still need to be quilted. They will be a gift.

I ironed and cut some greens and purples for the middle panel of my Rebel Flock quilt.

And I cut up some white for a craft project with my kids.

Yesterday afternoon I showed my 8 year old son how to use the sewing machine and he helped make some blocks for a different project. He had a great time and wants to do some more. Guess I need to find some projects for us to do.


  1. Great job working through your scraps! I bet it felt good to get them organized. You son and my son are the same age and mine loves to help me sew too!

  2. Good job using up your scraps. Great that your son enjoyed himself sewing.

  3. You certainly got a lot done. Lovely seeing your son sewing away x

  4. I think it is awesome that he likes to sew. My girls did but don't now.

  5. so pleased you found seems FNSI now has a permanent home at I hope you keep coming back and joining us! You certainly got lots done.....and passing the flame onto the younger generation (especially boys!!!) is just awesome! Have a great week! xox sugary hugs Wendy :o)
