FNwF April

Yesterday i joined in with 17 lovely ladies for Friday Night with Friends. Thankyou Cheryll for hosting us. Pop over here to find links to what projects were worked on.

I started reasonably early. My first project was to put the borders on my finished April stitcheries for Merry & Bright bom

Next project was to make the project up that Gail gives us each month with these patterns
The outside
The inside. Now to find a notepad to put into it.

Next i cut out 7 ironed on all the felt pieces to these cute little stocking ornaments.
Another kit ready to sew. Not sure how long i've had this one but my son bought it for me for Christmas. It was maybe 7 years ago. :)

I'd started sewing down the felt on these on these little hangings Thursday night.
This one needed to holly & berries stitched.
This one the red pieces & the holly & berries.
And this one needed all of it to be stitched.

By the time i put the last stitch in i was ready for bed. :)

Thankyou again Cheryll for being our lovely hostess.

quilt along's

Yesterday i put together the medallions for this month swap. I wanted to get them out of the way early. :)

The hexagons are more green than the photo is showing.

This morning on the Martingale page on Instagram i saw that the next blocks for the quirky quilt had been posted. This week it is 9 patches.

Fun little blocks to make.

Saturday sewing & prep work

Temecula Quilt Company is having a quilt along making a quirky little quilt & i've joined in.

The first blocks chosen for the quilt were the Shoofly blocks.


These blocks measure 3-1/2 inches. I wonder what next weeks blocks will be? All i can say is that they will be 3-1/2" too. :)

After sewing these i got out some little Christmas decoration kits i bought last year & prepped them ready to sew.






Happy Stitching,

Table runner

I'd completed the hand quilting on my Christmas tablerunner but decided i really didn't like it so some reverse sewing was in order. I machine quilted it today and I'm much happier with result.
