FNSI February.

 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.

Happy Stitching,

Your schoolgirl sampler is coming along so beautifully. That's a lot of border HST's and I really like that idea of creating a few as you go.

I'm not a fan of making HST's... well it's not the making, it's the trimming after. Blurgh!

Have a fab weekend :)
