Friday Night Sew In




And here we are ... the official Friday Night Sew In results....

I didn't get quite as much done as I would have liked but then again, I haven't gotten as much done as I would like everyday for the last 2 weeks! I blame it on the sinus infection and the fact that I only had one glass of wine! I got the blocks joined on the pinwheel quilts I was working on the last FNSI day. Turns out I am 7 blocks short! So much for being good at math!
The second one needs one more row so I am thinking I will take one row off the top, slap it on the side, add 2 more blocks and call it good. It will be 5 x 6 instead of 5 x 7, the sawtooth blocks finish at 2 inches so it should still work. Just don't tell anybody. ;)

I got the inner borders on the one and still have to add the sawtooth border on it (or I could quit here and it would be ok).

 Next I cut the squares for the half square triangles that make up the outer borders on both quilts. I didn't have enough of one fabric to do both quilts so these are the two that I chose. Jaydin drew the lines on for me but I still only got a few stitched out.

I did get the bindings made for both of them though so that is something....
Hope everyone had a productive sewing night...now I am off to surf the blogs to see what y'all did last night.

Love the pinwheel quilts! They're just such happy quilts. Hey, what's that your bindings are wrapped around? PVC pipe? Neat idea, whatever it is.

Looks like you got lots done last night! I just love the colors in your quilts :-) I was wondering about the bindings too!

I'm very impressed with the looks of your quilt, bindings and yes, I am interested in knowing what they're nice & neatly wrapped around, too!

Oh! I love pinwheels! And the fabrics you picked for the sawtooth borders and bindings are really fun. Also, I might actually like a 5x6 size better than a 5x7, so that totally works out. You got a lot more done than I did. I haven't even posted about it yet . . . is wasn't much, so I might not.

I think you did brilliantly. Love that pinwheel quilt. Gorgeous!

Binding always looks so fun when it's rolled up like that .

Congratulations on a productive FNSI.

FNSIs are great! Getting AnYtHinG done makes it worthwhile. :)
