Friday Night Sew In


Sorry to have been 'missing' for so long - we have had Bronchitis (this deserves a capital letter) and I've just been worn out at the end of each day.  Other odd and various things have also gone on, such as our car and oven quitting, costly repairs but both were repaired by my youngest son!
Thank you, Brad!!

I have my fabric cut out and ready to sew for the Friday Night Sew-In.
For more information, please click here

I used the tumbler die with the Accuquilt GO! and cut enough tumbler pieces to make a sofa quilt.
Since its getting colder and the evenings are longer, we need a TV snuggle quilt:)
I didn't buy 'new' fabric, just dug into my stash for enough yardage for a two color quilt.

This is the first die I've used other than cutting squares, and I'm very impressed with the ease of cutting perfect pieces.  I did outline the 'die' with a purple marker for ease of lining up the fabric.  Makes the pictures easier to see, too:)


Off to get busy, hopefully back with a progress report  this evening!

I hope you get over your bronchitis soon. It is not fun being ill.
You have found some very pretty fabrics.

Look how clever you are! I can't wait to see the finished product. In winter I get out all the cuddle blankets too. There are 5 in my family room right now. Sadly, only one is hand made and that's by my sister. I must do a post on it because it's an incredible quilt in which she incorporated many things about our life at the beach. Feel better soon-

Glad to see you're feeling better. This Friday Night sewing thing is cool.
