Friday Night Sew In Report


A long week of long days doesn't make for a lot of "bright-eyed and bushy-tailed" come Friday evening... but I did get some sewing done before I was just too tired...


I got one 4-block unit and four 2-block units sewn together.  The blocks are on a double bed so you can get some idea just how big this quilt is going to be.  

It's going to be a fun day... a couple of friends and I are going to do a little local shop hopping...



...and have lunch out... then return here for an afternoon of sewing!  

Good company, good food, and fabric therapy!   What could be better?

  5. Great blocks. How many will you need for the quilt?

    Are you doing the Quilt! Carolina Hop? I did seven stores yesterday. Just need to decide if I want to commit to driving to Fayetteville (would visit the one in Fuquay Varina on the way) next weekend or go ahead and turn in the passport.

    Cheers, K

  6. The blocks look great. I just had a reply note from Bonnie Hunter. I send her photos of my complete florabunda and thank you for her tuts. She's such a sweetie.

  7. Even though you were tired, it looks like you got all of these blocks sewn together facing the right direction. Good job. I may not have done as well while fighting fatigue. Probably would have had to unpick half of them.
    Sounds like you were set for fun today!
