This my first time participating with the FNSI. I had planned on finishing a list of things that just need that last step to be finished. I need to make a backing for a top I finished this week, make a binding for one I finished quilting this week and do 'quick finsh' bindings on a few quilts that I was planning to donate to Project Linus. I opted instead to make kits for PL instead. One of my yearly responsibilities for the guild is to oversee making those charity quilt. I bought a TON of fabric this week from a local store that not only gives us a great price for these projects but they also donate fabrics that are not 'sellable'. I picked the disappearing 9-patch pattern that I like making because it is so easy and so fast, plus you can make it with just about any fabric you have. So I spent HOURS cutting up the fabrics for blocks, borders, bindings and backings. I don't have battings yet but that will be a project for next week.

My hubby surprised me with a 'date night' last night so I made sure my 'Friday Night' started very early so I could be done by 7:00 to make our dinner reservations. ;)
