Friday Night Sew In Results

Another successful Friday Night Sew In!


I machine quilted some hooked feathers for my Mother,


in the border of this little quilt she made.


It is a thimble quilt - the pieces are about an 1". She had stippled the centre, but didn't feel up to feathers yet.


I had to keep a timer near by so that I wouldn't get carried away with sewing,


and forget to move the sprinkler. We are trying to grow grass and sod in +30C temperatures, and it takes a lot of water.



I did sew together some hour glass blocks too (I had made the blocks a while ago).


They are for the sashing of the Hop to It quilt (from the book by Edyta Sitar, I finished the last block this week).


I didn't know if I would like the sashing, but I now think it will be OK.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

The Hop to It blocks look fantastic with that sashing. So intricate and beautiful. I have to put the timer on so I remember to move the sprinkler too. :)

Love the look of the hooked feathers. I'm not a sashing fan. Sometimes it seems it's just used to make the quilt bigger and really doesn't do anything for the quilt, but in the case of the hop to it blocks it really does add to the beauty of the quilt.

Your sashing looks great - it will really change the look of your blocks but I think it will be beautiful. And the one-inch blocks that your mom made are divine!

Sashing looks great - I have missed you all. Back now from our week away - and not doing much at present. Visiters for weekend now!
