FNSI August.

I started my FNSI by cutting & then sewing the binding on a quilt recently quilted by Fabulous Fiona. I started cutting out the plaid pieces when i lived up north early 2000's then put away until recent years. I cut the gold pieces & both borders & voila!!! a quilt top was done. Now it is a fully completed quilt. :)

My next little project hit a bump in the road when i realised the bias was the wrong width. I guess when i was buying it online i was too busy making sure i wasn't buying way more metres then needed that i forgot to check width. :( Hopefully the new bias arrives Tuesday. I trimmed the stitcheries back, added wadding & the backing to baby "C's" banner.

3rd project was a Christmas hanging from earlier this year. All it needed was  the wadding, backing & a little quilting.
Another cute one from Fig n Berry.

The last thing i did in my sewing room before a marathon binding session was to prep this months Snowman.

Thankyou Wendy for hosting us for FNSI. Pop over to Wendy's blog to find links to who joined in & what projects they worked on.

Happy stitching,

You had a busy day/night.... the quilt looks really lovely - don't always see the end result properly when looking close up... that gold/mustard is perfect.
