FNSI

We all gathered (virtually) last night for a group sew-in... &
I worked on the charity qayg quilt called Black Diamonds.


I also managed to put together another BoYs ToYs block...

After being away it felt GOOD to be back in the cubbyhole again...
Thanks Wendy for inviting us all over to your place...

TGIFF

translates into 
Thank Goodness It's FINISHED Friday
and it's my pleasure to host this week.
You can read all about TGIFF here.

I love appliquƩ and of course making quilts so I combined the two on this one.
I used Antonie Alexander pattern called "Wild Things" & used the QAYG method.
It was a FuN project to do & I hope a little person will eventually LoVe it too.
Antonie has lots of great designs in her book called "Happy Quilts" and I've already make Snuggle Bears shown HeRe... and finished HeRe.

This one is called WILD THINGS...
BuT who said MoNSTeRs have to be scary... 
these certainly aren't... they're ADoRaBLe.

A few characters... up close & personal...
I quilted a few different designs on the blocks & used a red and black check backing fabric. I thought it looked sensational BuT I didn't have quite enough so I added some FuN accent fabric.
I used a black & white dotty fabric to join the blocks & for the edge binding. 
I really LoVe this one ...
This PLaY QuiLT measures 46inch x 57inch as I added 1 extra row to the length.
The 4 x 4 block layout in the book also had borders but I chose to leave them off.

Now it's your turn to show off what you've FiNiSHeD this week.

Machine Work

After a lot of blanket stitch / quilting / stitching this week...

I managed to sew together 2 completed rows of my BoYs ToYs quilt.
As you can see it's another QAYG project... 

I decided to appliquƩ pieces of "fruit" onto shopping bags for our Guild stall.
They're strong - instead of using plastic - & very handy to have on hand in the car.
They are 100% cotton & available from Spotlight $2.00 or Lincraft $3.00, although my DD gave me a bunch so I'll have more to make in the future IF they sell.

And another 12inch ReD door house finished & hanging on the design board...

And finally... BLOCK #3 (20inch) scrappy wonky quarter log cabin was...
sorted, pressed, pieced, trimmed, sandwiched & now pinned ready for quilting.

I hope you've enjoyed progress on YouR projects this week as well...
