No PReSSuRe... RiGHT?

DD wanted to give a BaBY FLooR PLaY RuG to 2 of her friends. 
I already had this one made... (now it's for a BoY due in September)... 
& it only needed a label to be stitched on.

But the other bubs gender is unknown... so a neutral rug was required.
This CuTe panel was PeRFeCT. 
So after finding suitable backing in my stash, adding free motion quilting, then a binding & a label... this cutie has now been finished & sent off to DD.

PHeW... well, I did have a weeks notice after all...

OnCe AGaiN

I cut up gifted scraps (WOF strips of each)  9 x 4 1/2 inch squares & joined them into a 9 patch. Yes another disappearing 9 patch block was being sewn.
This time I used all different colours/fabrics to make this block below...
I then joined all 9 blocks (3x3 layout)... cut off 2 lower corners... added a border (again from the donation basket) at 2 1/5 inch...  & turned all that left over scrap fabric into a 40 inch wheel chair quilt.
I'll make more as DD wants to donate them to the Cancer Care patients she treats.
I'm really HaPPy with this quilt I sewed alongside my friends at FNwF... 
even IF I started a little earlier in the day...
I do THANK YOU for your company...

So... firstly... it's time to pick out your WOOFA challenge project this month... 

Mine is to add the borders to my Girls Day Out quilt. 
I finally found a border fabric I liked so that's my project to work on this month. 
I won't get to the quilting as I still have a decision to make on that aspect...
but the borders are DeFiNiTeLY doable.

AnD... secondly... it's FNwF's time... YES... this Friday.
Simply add your blog address to the link below... it's really easy... 
& I'll get a few friends to drop by your place over the weekend to visit.
It's really NiCe to think we are all stitching together... even IF only virtually.

This week I added an ambulance to my quilt called BoYs ToYs.

Then I stitched the completed row together...
Still have lots more to complete BuT it's coming together...

I also added another Scottie Dog to the kennel only this time it's a playful puppy...

<> <> <> <> <>

And although I didn't fully complete my WOOFA(P) challenge this month... I did write (& type up) the instructions on how to make a craft bag with vinyl pockets. Now I just have to sew this bag together using those instructions to proof test them.

So now it's YoUR turn to show us what you accomplished this month on your own personal WOOFA challenge project.
Remember it's OK to have a less than desired outcome like I did... just be sure you add a few stitches in the next 3 days & you will have advanced.
It's as simple as ONE stitch at a time...

 was on Friday night... & I finished another BoYs ToYs block.

I also appliqued 2 "shopping bags" & then filled them with "products" for our 
Guilds monthly Tombola Raffle table.

Thank you Wendy for inviting us over to sit-n-sew with you.
You can visit Wendy HERE ... & also find fellow FNSI-ers there too...

PlaYinG with FaBRiC

1. I started by choosing 5 scrap fabrics & cutting them into 5 1/2 inch squares... 
2. Pieced them together in a 9 patch...(4 fabric repeats)
3. Pressed & then cut them into 4 blocks...
4. Turned 2 blocks (#2 & #3)...
5. Sewed them back together again...
6. Pressed again & started over with the NeXT 9 pieces...
Please note:
I only made 2 cuts but a double OR triangular disappearing 9 patch are variations.
You can also arrange the 4 cut pieces into various designs... have some FuN...
but as my "blue/purple flowers" were directional I kept them in the corners in 
#1 & #4 positions as those blocks DO NOT get cut & I chose NOT to move them.
As I was HaPPy with my layout, I made 15 (+5 x 1/2 blocks) finishing at 141/2 inch.

All blocks have now been sewn into approx 50inch x 70inch  pretty  flimsy... 
so I'll sandwich it ASAP... & then get onto the quilting.
Fingers crossed 🤞 as another FiNiSH is looming...
