Friday Night with Friends Jan 2018

I spent all day sewing for our first FNwF for 2018. Thankyou Cheryll for hosting us again. So what did i work on you ask. I started with piecing another backing together for a quilt ready to be quilted.

Next i chose a quilt from 2 years ago when i spent a weekend at a mystery quilt retreat. I only managed all the piecing & about 12 blocks. Due to so much time passing i couldn't remember how many blocks Susanne had said we'd end up with so i just kept making blocks up until i ran out of the pieces already made.
The right side has 15 blocks & the left has 8. So i worked out the quilt had 35 blocks. Not my best piecing as when i was trimming back some of those section all that time ago I place my ruler wrong & so some points just don't match very well. Oh well it was all done in a bit of a rush. 2 days sounds heaps of time to make a quilt top but the time flies by very quickly.

 I then managed to get the top together
By this time i was hot & bothered so i've left adding the borders until today.

Night time found me hand piecing Icecream Soda
Row 6 almost finished. It needs another 2 full blocks & another half one. 3 more rows to go & then i need to start adding them together. Maybe next week it will be finished. :)

Pop over to Cheryll's blog to see who joined in last night & what projects were worked on.

Happy Stitching.

Wow Jeanette you sure do get a lot done, your projects are gorgeous. I wish I had your stamina - I can't sit that long at anything except a good book. Lately, doing handwork, my eyes just close and I want a nap, lol!
