FNSI results

I started my evening ripping out stitches between blocks on my sister's quilt.  Someone suggested that I might sash the blocks.  That was not my original intent but the bias edges keep stretching and I cannot get the points to all line up so I am going to sash with a nice ivory cotton.  Unfortunately, I don't have said cotton so I have to shop.  (Damn the bad luck!)

There were several other things I could have done but I had pulled out some scraps last week and decided I needed a table topper for one of the end tables in my living room.  Determined to make a dent in the scrap pile, here's what I did

I only got as far as doing some stitch in the ditch to anchor the blocks.  Later this afternoon I will get it quilted.  This morning I am headed to my sister's to put a quilt on the long arm.  I have to cut the fabrics for a baby quilt some time this weekend and also need to make two bags.  So much to do and just so little time!  It would probably help if I stopped doing projects I want to do and do the ones that I need to do!


  1. oooh, I love your fabrics!
    I think I would get more done if I stopped blog hopping! Waaaaay to much input for one person!
    Enjoy your weekend! ...Karen
