Friday Night Sew-In Botanica Park


My Friday Night Sew-In was spent working on my flying geese for my chevron border of the Botanica Park quilt. This is the last section I need to do and then I can sew the sections together. This quilt will be my main focus for the next couple of weeks. I am happy that I am now seeing the end.

I Wish I May


The quilt I have started years ago for my son is now done. I started it at a quilting retreat, put it away and took it out every so often. I finally got to the flying geese border last Fall and took it to the same quilting retreat I go to every year to finish the flying geese. It was completed last week and will now be going with him to college. The pattern is I Wish I May by Border Creek Station. I did have it sent out to be quilted. I tried a fairly new technique for me of using a meandering stitch on my machine to sew done the binding. I really like the effect because it fits in with the quilting.  My son is very happy with the quilt.

Friday Night Sew In -Placemats


My Friday Night Sew In was spent starting on some placemats for my Mom for her upcoming birthday. It came as a kit with a diagram on how to cut the shapes and sew back together. I got one of the tops done. I am going to make them first and then trim them to the same size.

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.
