FNSI Success!

Another Friday Night Sew-In come and gone, but I am so happy to say my last 001four blocks are pieced.  Whewwwww!  Have to hand to it Fat Quarter Shop. The patterns for this BOM were so well written and easy to follow.  My piecing, well it may not be the best, but as my friend Deb use to say, ‘if you are holding your quilt up and someone gallops by on their trusty steed it is going to look perfect!'’  Next step, getting the quilt together.  Thanks again to Heidi and Bobbi for hosting
Before I started sewing Friday night I organized my sewing desk drawer a bit003.  When I was out shopping Monday with my girl, we went to IKEA and I found these drawer organizers that were the perfect size for my sewing desk……still looks messy I know, but compared to where it started….PERFECTION!

The next couple days will be filled with housework, so not much sewing will be happening, but next week....lots of fun planned!  Happy weekend everyone.

Your blocks are beautiful. FQS really puts together some beautiful block-of-the-month quilts. I love the fabrics in this one.

Lovely blocks - they look great to me! I wish I had a drawer like that - and that I lived closer to an Ikea store :)

Beautiful blocks, Cheryl! Glad you had a good night. I hope to be sewing next week too - almost got my sewing room organized!

Great blocks, Cheryl. I have the same BOM up on my longarm right now - and it amazes me - you have totally different block patterns than I do! We must have all gotten something different!
Cheers!

I LOVE IKEA! We just got one in our town a year ago, and it's been so much fun to find every little thing they carry. Your blocks look great!

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

I would need a sew-in every night and an IKEA in my backyard to get a handle on my projects. Well done, Cheryl!

Good job catching up on the blocks. I know that feels good.
And it feels good to be organized too. Now you can find things more easily. Well done.

I have this completed BOM unstarted in a drawer in my sewing room. I'm glad you had a good experience with the FQS BOM and it makes me breathe a little easier about starting mine!

I love getting organized! I have difficulty keeping it that way but I do try.
