FnwF November

Last night i joined in with our lovely hostess Cheryll for FnwF.

I started my day with finally putting the binding on a quilt that has been waiting a month. :) I had a helper.

1st quilty kitty.

Next i caught up with adding the borders to my Christmas BOM. I've been good at keeping up with all the stitching but have been slack since June about the borders & also making up the projects that came with the BOM. Those are next on my list. :)
Hmmm same quilty kitty helper. :)

Next up was some tracing out
 Not a very clear photo i know. I must have taken about 20 shots but none will show up clear. :(. Novembers Christmas BOM & project stitchery.

I'm taking part in a needlecase swap again this year & as i can't quite decide what i want to send i've pulled several patterns out to make up. Again the tracing is hard to see.
I'm making the case & matching pincushion from this set.

That done i sat down to hand sew the binding down only to be "helped" by quilty cat number 2.
Very hard to move the quilt around with a cat on the quilt.

After the binding was done i started one of the needlecase patterns i'd chosen. It came as a kit so i didn't have any cutting out to do.
I bought the matching dilly bag pattern/kit too which i did have to cut the flower out for & i'll make it up to go with the needle case.

So onto Saturday morning so i could take a photo of the quilt. I started this quilt October 2015 as a weekend mystery quilt. I put the rest of the blocks & the top together in January 2018. It finally made it to the top of the quilt top ufo pile to be quilted.

 Thankyou to Fiona for the beautiful quilting.

Pop over to visit Cheryll to find the links to who all joined in last night & what projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

Gosh you were jumping around from project to project and got heaps done.... I do love the colours you used in that quilt.. and as always your piecing is so good. I am often good at keeping up the handwork part and not getting on with finishing off...
