Friday Night Sew In Results

Here I am with the Friday Night Sew In results.  I did not accomplish as much as I intended.  If you remember how long the Pearl Harbor movie is from a few years back (two discs) that is how long I spent sewing before I called it a night. 
 Was able to get the boarder on the wall hanging.  It is a Bloom Creek pattern call ""Charm Sampler".  I did not use a charm pack though, instead I cut all my squares from the fabrics I wanted to use.  I had planned on getting it ready to quilt but the backing I planned on using was just a smidgen to small.  I have decided to hand quilt this project.  I would love some comments with suggestions on how you would quilt it and with what color and or type of thread.
The above picture is the flannel I chose to make the baby buntings out of.  Oh my, do not forget to check the width of the fabric if you do projects out of the book I showed in the previous post.  I did not and it was to narrow to use for the pattern that takes every bit of a 44-45 width and I only had a 40 width.  But it is washed and ready for another project.  I am sure I will use it.
I also started quilting the fabric for the notebook covers.  Was not able to get very far with this project though because it was getting late and Ladybug was barking upstairs every time I made a little bump downstairs.  I hope to work on it later today and tomorrow afternoon.  But right now I am off to spend time with my youngest daughter and mother in love for a few hours.  Have a wonderful day and blessing to all of you!
