Results from FNSI

I got home from work a little later than I anticipated (it's time consuming looking for the perfect bottle of wine!) and then a friend started sending texts and that took more time away from the studio.  Finally I got upstairs about  7:30.  This is what I nearly finished


The only thing I have left to do is quilt the outside borders and bind it.



The focus fabric has the appearance of appliqué and I chose colors from that for my polka dot (LOVE) pieced blocks.  A friend at my office ordered this one for a baby shower she is attending the first of May.  The parents decided not to find out the sex of their baby so they have requested neutral colors.  I think this fabric works for boy or girl.

My quilty sister has been out of town for a week so we are spending the day together.  We will be driving all over Lebanon and Lancaster Counties today.  On the list are thrift stores, 2 quilt shops, Joann's, (maybe) Hobby Lobby, AC Moore and Michaels.  That's a lot of shopping so I had better go get dressed!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Yay!!! I was in the studio for two whole hours and sewed on TWO zippers (it has been AGES since I have sewn a zipper!).

    I wish I had had the wine, however. I thought I could do without, but I think I would have stayed in the studio longer with more ... er, inspiration. :D
