Easter Weekend-Friday Night Sew In

 I used my Easter weekend -Friday Night Sew In to work on my Simple Whatnots Club -Season 11 from Kim Diehl. This is my first time signing up for the club. Last year I got an individual kit from a previous season and really enjoyed it so I was happy when my LQS was hosting the one this year. I love all the fabrics and I am excited to have small kits to work on and hang up in my quilting room. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

A Star Is Born


For Friday Night Sew In I worked on a baby quilt I am making for a friend’s granddaughter.  I had a bit more cutting than I had thought so I had to finish that before sewing again. The pattern by Canuck Quilter  is one big block which is something I have been wanting to try. Baby quilts are always my favourite to make. There are so many great patterns for them.

Friday Night Sew-In Alaska Rainbow

 I spent my Friday Night Sew-In working on my Alaska rainbow quilt. I bought the fabric kit last year but only had gotten one set of blocks done. I am hoping that my new Singer Featherweight will encourage me to continue working on it. I purchased the fabric kit rather than the pre-cut and after cutting out all the shapes for the block this week, I wished I had bought the pre-cut kit. This will be a quilt for me so there is no rush to get it done.

Pretty in Pink

 My daughter made this beautiful quilt for me last Fall. Pink is my favourite colour. Our local quilt store has a Christmas in July sale and all of the fabrics were picked from scrap bins. The back is a soft flannel with hearts and my initial on it. I am so fortunate to have such an amazing daughter. She has fabric ready for a few other quilts she wants to make and it will be great to work together.

Flying Geese - Friday Night Sew In


I spent my Friday Night Sew In cutting fabric and starting to sew the flying geese for the border of my son’s quilt. I got 20 out of the 160 needed done. Hopefully chain piecing will help this go quickly.

Seeing stars


My eyes are seeing stars. I am getting closer to having the I Wish I May quilt finished for my son. Since this photo was taken I have completed the quilt top and am now working on the borders. It would be wonderful to have this done by Christmas.

Getting There - Friday Night Sew In

I used my Friday Night Sew In to iron, trim and remove the paper from my half square triangles. They were the last squares I needed to complete before I can start putting together the quilt for my son. I am thrilled to have reached this point. It has been a long time working on this quilt and I think it deserves a finish soon.
