FNSI results.

I was able to get some sewing in on Friday and finished the last 5 stars and put this 12 inch block together. This is from a sew along that Jo is hosting over at Jo's Country Junction. The reveals are on the first day of the month. This month it is our choice of the three remaining patterns from Lori Smith's pattern #4. I think I have now completed all of them except the one applique block. If I can get the last patterns applique block done in the next week I might be able to get that one done too! My fabrics are from the Kansas Trouble line. I really love the country look of them.

I also got a midget block done - #55 but that one is set to reveal on Tiny Tuesday. I found these over at Sentimental Stitches and 51-125 are still available for free here. I managed to copy down the first 50 before she took them off the website but they are still available in her store if you'd like to join in the midget fun.
I got a little quilting time in this evening but with some thread breaks I decided to call it a night. This is what I got done so far. Just some loops and lines on the baby quilt. I hope I can work on this a bit tomorrow and not have any thread breaking issues.

I am linking up for the first time to FNSI. I don't think it will be my last link up!
Go on over and see what everyone else worked on in their sewing room on Friday.


  1. 55 was a cute block. Glad you got a start on the quilting, tension issues are no fun!

  2. Your stars look great. Sometimes it is just better to step away from the machine when things start to go wrong. Less frustration that way!

  3. I love your stars' block! great colours :-)

  4. Your stars are beautiful! Nice work.
