Friday Night Sew In



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.

HUGE stack of 6 inch blocks...that fell soon after this pic was taken. lol

Kits laid out



Bundled with pattern


32 Kits packed up and ready to go to out next Guild Meeting

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. ;)

I love it that you are involved in Project Linus. People like you who make up the kits are VERY appreciated. I'm able to go to my guild and pick up a bundle and just go sew. Thankyou!!

I love the quilt pattern. It's perfect for Spring.
