FNSI results - 1/21/11

This Friday Night Sew In was just what I needed to kick my rear in gear! I got a bit of sewing done throughout the day and started working on some things to do for today. :)

My first order of business was to work on the HSTs that were leftover from the mug rug and try to make a mini quilt for the mini quilt raffle that will be at the Quilter's Guild of Indy quilt show in October. I used as many of the HSTs that I could, but it still ended up being an odd size because I ran out of one of the oranges.

I will be able to get this quilted quickly on my machine like I did the other one and Barb picked up a strip for binding for me from the shop. Woo hoo! I will have this done shortly and then I can enjoy it for a few months before handing it off to Jennifer who will be here in April for the quilt show. :)

After that, I worked on prepping Sibling Revelry for quilting today. I need to make the backing, but that will be done in no time and then I can fire up the quilt machine and get to work. I'm also going to quilt the poinsettia table runner that I assembled last year. The quilt will take a little longer because I am going to do a panto on it that Regina picked out.

How about that? I might get to work on two different PIGS today! They should be slaughtered by the end of the month!

Max thinks that he doesn't want to be involved in the slaughtering....

Well Done! I love Max!

Love the mug rug! Make sure you sign the back of it so we can say that you made it (and include that you were a judges choice winner at the last show :) Good luck with the quilting and I don't blame Max!

FNSI was good for you. Love the mini HST's. I don't think I could work with something that small.

Slaughtering PIGS? Hmm. Interesting way to look at that. Hope you do get those two done.

Good progress--nothing tastes so good as well done PIGS!

Nicely done!

Regina said...

I think your HST color choices influenced my Tiger wall hanging!!! They are strikingly similar! What is it they say about brilliant minds??? Oh nevermind... LOL!

Sounds like you're achieving a lot at the moment.

Well, Maxie can come stay with Penny and me until you get those PIGs finished up! You're on a roll!
