Yesterday was FNSI time hosted by Wendy I started early making my week seven blocks for the schoolgirl sampler sew along. I should take a photo of all the fabrics i drag out looking for the "perfect" one for each block. I end up surrounded by little piles. :)
Just in time for the next six to be made. :)
It was recommended to us to make up six half square triangles each week as well for one of the borders. It needs 92. I hadn't been but decided i'd better get a move on with them. I started cutting out a pile of squares then sewed them all until i ran out of squares & made a count. I had made 46 which is half of the amount need & 2 ahead of where i would have been if i'd been making the 6 a week. :)
After all that sewing & going out looking at a house as we have to move it was time for some relaxing hand sewing.
I worked on my Karma quilt.
I added the chocolate hexagons around the centre, added it to the row & then sewed the red row around.
Karma quilt so far. Then i made up more of the pale hexagons ready for the next row
and sewed a flower with them.
That was my day. Pop over here to find links to who joined in last night.

And i may have purchased these beautiful fabrics by Michelle Yeo to add to my quilt as borders & cornerstones. :)

Thankyou Cheryll for hosting FNwF again for us that like to stitch along on these Friday nights. There were 22 including me. Sadly my stitching was a bit of a bust. I only manage to stitch a little around this
before a migraine sent me to bed.
Pop over to Cheryll's blog to see who joined in & the chosen projects that were worked on

I'm not sure where last week went but i didn't get near my sewing machine at all except to look at it sitting forlornly waiting for me. :) So i had gotten behind with my 4-1/2" sampler blocks. I spent several hours yesterday cutting out the 12 blocks for weeks 4 & 5. Today was spent sewing them together.
I may change that blue floral yet. I'll see how it works with all the other blocks first.
Kind of felt like this looking through my reproduction fabric cupboard. :) :).
