FNwF March

How can it be March already ??????

Yesterday/last night i joined our lovely hostess Cheryll & 17 other lovely ladies for FNwF & my first project was to put a binding on my doll quilt i made & hand quilted last weekend.

I'd put the felt applique on these little blocks on Wednesday & they just needed the border fabrics so i could place the holly in the corners of the 2 elf blocks.

That done i dragged out an old UFO to finish adding border pieces & applique to. This one is from 2012.
First i sewed the completed blocks together then added the border row across the bottom

Laying the blocks out on the bed to place the fabric squares around for placement before sewing seemed to be an open invitation to some small furry critters.
Just 4 blocks needed to have the squares sewn around. So very slack, why didn't i finish this years ago.
Then i had to cut out the felt applique for 3 blocks as the apple one had been done back in 2012. :)
All attached now & with a furry photo bomber. :)

Now to the evening & that saw me sewing the binding down by hand to the doll quilt
All done & first finish for March. I got a bit slack with sewing after that & only put a few stitches in an embroidery i'm doing.
Happy Stitching,

Everything is gorgeous Jeanette. I love the little dolls quilts you have been making. Isn't it funny, how the furry ones always seem to think we put our quilts & our craft work out just for them!!

Wow, you were motivated for sure!!! The little doll quilt is too cute and the felt ornaments look like a lovely make. OH!! Harriet and Harrington - I have that somewhere waiting to be quilted - thank you for the reminder about that - I loved that project!
