Hopefully you have made it to this post...can't believe I linked to the wrong place! oh well!
I actually started sewing about noon yesterday...and was able to get Girl's Seasonal Quilt top completed! That was a major goal of mine, so I'm glad I got that part finished! After taking a break to cook dinner and spend some time with the family before Guy had to leave for work, I headed back to the machine at about 7:15 p.m.
And that's when this:
and the fabric was flying and I got Weeks 13-14 of the FWQAL done!
I started with Block #24 Country Path and my sewing evening almost ENDED with Block #24...it took me 2.5 hours to get this one block sewn! A good chunk of that time was cutting all the different pieces and then I had a few pieces I had to pull apart and restitch as I had them sewn to the wrong pieces...but in the end...here is the block...and quite honestly...I LOVE it!
after spending all of that time on one block...had to take a short break to have a snack with Girl and watch a little TV before she went to bed...and then I headed back to the sewing table...to work on Block #25 Cups and Saucers...which thankfully was a bit faster to cut out and put together...
and I'm torn about Block #25...not sure that I actually like it...it looks a bit off...may have to re-do that one later.
So finished up Block #25...and was ready to start the next...and then I saw what it was:
and that's when the laughter started...NO WAY was I going to cut out all 51 of those tiny little pieces last night...just wasn't happening...so for the first time since I started working on Farmer's Wife blocks...I skipped a block (I've been working in number order)...so I turned the page...and really started laughing! These were up next:
Block #27: Darting Birds - 52 pieces
Block #28: Duck and Ducklings - 29 pieces
and while they don't actually appear to be that bad to put together...I just was NOT going to cut out all those pieces...so I just turned the page...it was getting late and I wanted to get some more accomplished, but I wasn't going to skip to the end of the book just to find some easier blocks to put together...thankfully all I had to do was turn the page...
BINGO! Not a lot of pieces to cut out...and went together easy peasy!
Block #29: Economy
Block #30: End of Day (LOVE LOVE LOVE this one!)
and it was getting really really late about this time...so I called it a night! Had a blast, got some things accomplished, and look forward to doing it all again! One final pic of all 4 blocks together:
Now I'm off to hop along and see what some of the other folks did for their Friday Night Sew-In!
