FNSI Results

How did your FNSI go? Did you ditch the husband and hide from the kids and sew to your heart's content? Did you wear pajamas and drink wine and lose yourself in fabric and seams and quilting lines? Ahh...FNSI, how I love thee.

My plan was to work on my Stay At Home Round Robin. But when I got home I got completely sidetracked by an old UFO. My Twilight quilt was a stack of blocks last night. I made the last block and then got excited and started sashing the blocks together. At midnight I decided that I might as well join the rows since I had already done all this work!

This block was the result of a block swap I participated in a few years ago. The theme was red, black, white, and gray. It was a Twilight theme, so I dubbed this my Twilight quilt. I made a few extra blocks to make it bigger. Cute, huh? Today I might stop by my LQS to find some border fabric.

That will probably be the extent of my sewing this weekend. I have errands, chores, and family stuff for the rest of my days off.

Yesterday I discovered that I was the winner of a giveaway from Lynn of Alamosa Quilter. She was celebrating her 500th post (Wow! That's A LOT!). Congrats Lynn! I won a $20 gift certificate from Intrepid Thread. Fun!

I chose the Fat Quarter Bundle of Heirloom by Joel Dewberry in Sapphire. Isn't it pretty?!
