FNwF

It’s that time again! Friday Night with Friends. Thanks to Cheryl for hosting this each month! Here’s what I am working on, what about you? 

This weekend is killer for us, Grad party for Diva on Saturday night, and then a Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday morning, all at our house. So cleaning has to happen this week!!! I hate cleaning. I would prefer to just work on my projects! LOL. Here’s what I am working on during FNwF. 

 

I asked Diva what quilt she would like as a wedding gift. I showed her some patterns and also a project I already had in the works. She choose the project in progress! Yay for me! The one she decided on is Willow QAL March 2020. At this time I was doing 4 sew alongs. Oy!, what was I thinking? I just need to decide which version to go with, and then look for a good border fabric. I don’t have enough of what I wanted to use. 

This week I have been working on getting the last blocks, the sashing cornerstones, made. At 3″ finished, they are a bit fiddly. I needed 24 and was able to get them all  done. Now to sash all the blocks and join it all together. I still need to find a border fabric since the one I was hoping to use isn’t going to cover my yardage needs.

I need it done by July 24th, so time’s a wasting. Off I go to get some sewing done before the party tonight. Good thing we are just ordering pizza, cause I have 25 blocks, 24 cornerstones, 4 corner triangles, and and 64 sashing pieces to put together! 

How did your Friday night go?

In: A small Jelly Roll, quilt label printer fabric, and foundation piecing paper, and not shown a bunch of Pellon Foam for those wedding day totes. Yardage for a baby quilt, my BOM kit from Quilts Plus, and extra yardage just because.


Out: Double Wedding Ring!!! I am doing it! And doing it almost flawlessly. I am so psyched to get this done!! Then I dived into a sack of scraps a friend gave me and made 2 little toppers, total Squirrels!!! And THEN we finally got to have our Quilts Plus club meeting. So I HAD to make my BOMs once I got home on Saturday. So now I MUST work on DWR today!!
