SaTuRDaY RePorT

I had a GrEaT FNSI...  Did you?

I've had a busy week so yesterday I had a quiet one. Hubby had to run some errands so I got an early start to my FNSI. I had purchased some fabric some time ago and as I was thinking of how to cut it up for another Blanket of Love... I decided that it was too cute to cut, so I left it in a whole piece. I cut it to a 24 inch square... sandwiched it... pinned it... all ready for my night of sewing.






Later in the afternoon... hubby brought these home for ME.




Made some dinner then...
Started my FNSI...

I quilted the tiny BOL in a simple grid pattern. Added a LoVe heart.. well actually two of them. Did the binding and then hand stitched it to the back.
All finished in 1+1/4 hours.
On to the next project.
What to do with these pre-cuts I'd been given some time ago.

There was a mixed bag of pieces... some duplicated, some not... and luckily all the same size... so I did this...
I picked out a few... then used a template and rotary...
And ended up with lots of these shapes...
I then did a little stitching together... added a few blanket stitches... quilted it simply with blue thread... attached the binding and went downstairs to finish off hand sewing the binding to the back.
I watched Aussie Bernard Tomic win his 5 set grind match shown live from the Australia Tennis Open... congrats to Bernard and yippee for Aussies!

FNSI is finished and so is another little BLanKeT oF LoVe.


Visit the " BLanKeTs oF LoVe" blog HERE to read about this very worthwhile project.
Later today I'll be off to visit other FNSI-ers to see what they accomplished.
Thanks for stopping by.....

My My, you were very busy....I often do small baby blankets with whole cloth pieces so I might do a couple for this project.....do they accept crochet pieces? I pick up a baby blanket once in a while at the thrift store, and once laundered is good as new.
