Friday night with Friends

Time to report my FNWF happenings. On Thursday evening I stitched along with my friends in the Southern Hemisphere and finished off this little stitchery which will become a postcard.
Then on Friday evening I worked on this stitchery that I started last year around this time . Not too much left to do now .
Sorry it is still wrinkled from the hoop .

 Have you ever had a situation that you just had to do something even though it wasn't your colours or even your style . Well this happened to me , I had bought some bits and pieces from a friends estate sale at our guild and in the bag was some four patch blocks and these pink polka dot pieces sewn on each side of a beige piece . What was her intention , hmm , no real idea but after much thought and contemplation I came across a photo of a block and the light bulb went on . I think this was Carols plan for these pieces or I hope it was . I have been sewing these together as leaders and enders off and on this summer and found I had created 13 blocks.  I chose the best 12 of those and made this quilt top after searching through my stash for borders and sashings . I was happy to find some fabrics I felt matched these blocks fairly well so proceeded to get it all sewn together and here is the result.  I hope Carol would be pleased.  It is the size of a lap quilt .
I actually quite like it now and I think it is good to sew fabrics you don't normally use it makes you think outside the box a little .
 At the moment I am busy sewing the Splendid sampler blocks from last year together , well actually I have that part completed plus I have sewn all the sashing strips together for between the rows so the next job is sewing those to the rows of blocks . Wow , this is a ton of work !
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by to see what others have been stitching on for FNWF , Thanks to Cheryl for hosting us .
