FNSI February 2018

After completing my lovely cross-stitch the Thursday night, I was spoilt for choice for what to do for FNSI. I decided to pick a project that has a definite deadline - a baby quilt!

Last Sunday, I spent some time at my friend Jo's working on cutting out material. I have discovered that Jo cuts out far quicker than I do, so will be persuading her to help me cut out all my material in future! The material I am using is mainly from the Doodle Days collection. The green was a random FQ that works very well with the set.


We cut out 5inch squares, and worked out the layout of the quilt.



Skip to Friday.
After successfully clearing a LOT of lint out of my machine, and changing the needle; I sat down to sew the quilt top. (I'm quite proud that the whole thing still works!)


5 episodes of Grey's Anatomy later, I have a finished quilt top! I did forget to get a proper picture of it, but you get the idea.

I now have to wait for the batting/wadding to arrive - as always, I did not get it in advance and can't find any that suits in local shops.

How was everyone else's Friday night? Hop on over to Wendy's to see who else signed up, and what they have been up to.

Quilting is a lot quicker than cross stitch!

Still looks good though.

A Little Bit of Crafting

Alongside the early nights and theatre trips I mentioned in my previous post, I have actually managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafting...
