FNSI...the results!

Hope you are all having a great weekend!  I only got a little bit of sewing done on Friday as part of Friday Night Sew In...we had a big day ahead on Saturday so I couldn't stay up as late as I normally would have tried! is what I was able to get accomplished:

1: purchased fabric earlier in the day to go with my Christmas quilt:

the black and green are from Share the Joy by Deb Strain, the cream is from Christmas Spirit by Holly Taylor.

2: pieced together my disappearing 9-patch blocks for my Christmas quilt (which I am now thinking I might want to make a few more 9-patches to increase the overall size...I don't want it to be ALL borders!):

The fabric is Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater, and I have a couple of fat quarters from this line that I may go ahead and cut into charms and piece a few more blocks.

3: cut all the fabric and did a tiny bit of piecing (1/2 the red blocks) for the September block in the FQS 2012 Mystery BOM. (the rest of the sewing on this block is what I did on Saturday night).

and that's a wrap!


  1. Those fabrics you bought are beautiful! I love the quilt with it's non-traditional appeal.

  2. Your Christmas quilt is looking great. Love your finishing fabrics.

  3. It's a darling quilt. I love Christmas quilts.

  4. Love that Christmas quilt. Looks like you had a successful FNSI! :)
