Friday Night Sew-In Results

Last night was a Friday Night Sew-In, it has been a while for me so I was pleased to join in. Thanks to Wendy from Sugarcane Quilts for hosting.

I was joined by Raewyn (Love to Stitch) on her Saturday - quilting and chatting, a nice way to spend an evening!

I didn't get any sewing done, but I cut out all the fabric for a new quilt. Pressing the fat quarters took as long at the cutting! The pattern is Emma by Bella Moon, a great fat quarter pattern. I used the rest of a French General fat quarter pack (leftover from my Double Wedding Ring quilt) for this - 23 FQ's (I am making the quilt 60" x 84", 12" blocks with a 5x7 layout).

I really enjoying this kind of piecing. It is the second time I have made this pattern and it is going together well.

Today I pieced 21 blocks (I need 35 blocks).

The snow drifts in the yard are constantly changing.

The partridges and rabbit eating together.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

That looks like fun. I love seeing the partridge and the bunny together. We got a bit of snow this morning, about 1 inch. That's all we have.

Very productive Joanne - your blocks are looking great! It was good spending time with you :-)

You did manage to get a lot of fabric cut for your quilt. The poor animals have to cope with such cold weather-- they are lucky to have some food given to them.
