FNSI Results

My results for the Easter version of the Friday night sew in are in the below picture.  I finished 5 of the six blocks pictured over the weekend and have three to go. These blocks were purchased in kits from 9 quilt shops that were participating in a shop hop.  Instead of sticking them in a drawer with many more shop hop kits, I decided to work on them right away.   They are for a mini quilt that I did not buy the finishing kit for.  I decided I could put nine blocks together with sashing on my own.  I will make sure to share the finished quilt.

I am not sure I am in love with the colors provided in the bottom left block, I have some batiks in my stash and may remake that one.  The piece of batik that came with the top middle kit was too small and I took that batik out of my stash. Now I need to go check in on the other Sew In participants and I hope I have posted within the time I was suppose to.   Hope you are all having a great week!

Blessings from our home in the woods!

There are some nice blocks there. Good for you for sewing it up right away - it is so easy to put it in the cupboard for later - which may never come.

Ooooooo beautiful blocks, you were very busy!! Well done for getting stuck in and doing the blocks instead of putting then in a drawer...we are all guilty of that!! Love the batiks!!!

Wow Brenda. Very pretty. I love seeing progress pictures of your sew in results. I could join in the sewing nights now that we have vacated that basement! Maybe I shall dedicate a sewing night...as soon as I get the table cleared!! We moved out and never looked back!
