FNwF October

 Well how did it get to October already. Anyhoo with it being the 1st of October yesterday it was time for Friday Night with Friends hosted by lovely Cheryll.

I had my day planned to start early but was interrupted & that just seemed to set to scene for the day. 1st my iron had melted felt on it which i didn't realise so it ended up on the back of a block i was pressing. Hmm how to clean that off. Managed to remove it so i could get back to pressing without fear of more icky stuff on my block. 1 blessing i guess if you can call it that was it ended up on the back & not the front. :). So what went wrong next. Oh yes i sewed the first row to the 2nd row on the wrong side so reverse sewing was in order. Was it over yet? no after the top was together i found i had placed 2 blocks together that weren't supposed to be. Darn i was following the designers photo carefully or so i thought!! Well that was that the block was staying there. Oh there was some quilting issues which involved reverse sewing but i got there in the end with possibly some swearing & thoughts of throwing the quilt in the corner. lol

Sew what did i make.

Temecula Quilt Co started a sew along back in March 2019. I made the first blocks on Saturday March 30th. Followed along faithfully & finished all the little blocks, bought the blue fabric & of course it was shoved aside to make my next UFO  project. 

Fast forward to 2021 & it was getting close to the front of my basket of UFO's that i've been working through. One day several weeks back i cut out all the blue triangles & borders along with fabrics for another ufo so that when they hit the front of the basket they were ready to go. 

So there you have it one finished small quilt. Blocks measure 3" finished. 

Pop over here to see who joined in FNwF & what projects were worked on.

Happy Stitching,

Your small quilt is just gorgeous Jeanette. I think we all have sewing days like that - where it all turns to custard !! I know I do. !!

Your quilt is so pretty Jeanette, even if it was fighting with you to not be finished.

What a marathon. I think I would have walked away from it until another day. You did well to persevere and the end result is beautiful. Well done.

Good for you to not give up after facing those challenges. I love the blue background, it really makes the blocks pop. I hope to join next month's FNwF. It's fun to see what everyone creates.

I just love Temecula Quilt QALs too! I've done several but not that one. Great job. Despite a few setbacks, it turned out beautifully!
