Friday Sew-In

I can hear all those machines humming away tonight. As I fired up my sewing machine I visualized hundreds of quilters working on their Friday Night Sew-In projects.

When I was able to settle in, I still was not sure what to tackle. I finally decided that I'd like to use up some of the left over fabric from the quilt I made for my daughter's birthday. I had plenty left but needed a plan......

So I just started sewing four patches and kept going. I'm not sure what the final result will be with this yet, but it is a start.

And tomorrow is another day ;-)

Hey Jocelyn, well done you did a great job with those leftovers blocks. I think simple is best. I had fun too and posted mine up earlier this morning. Hope you will go over and have a look - Hugs Nat

This is looking good! Don't you love the softness of pink and brown together? That is is extras from another project makes it even better!

Hi Jocelyn, it was a great feeling to know all that sewing was going on across the world. I've posted mine. I love what you've done, my daughter's new quilt is going to be brown, pink and cream, such a lovely combination (reminds me of Neopolitan ice cream).

Okay, I am THOROUGHLY impressed with what you got done, Jocelyn. And, besides that - I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color palette - it appears on my screen to be shades of pinks and browns.

Way to go!!

Oh I love it. I did a table runner from a jelly roll. It was fun but I am just a beginner but I love learning and trying. The sew in was so much fun.
