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.
