Friday Night Sew In

Last night I participated in the Friday night sew in for the first time. It was fun to know that gals were sewing around the globe and getting stuff done. They have a group project each month that you can do or you can work on your own stuff. This month I decided I would try to make some progress on some of my many projects I have cluttering my sewing desk.
I have been working on alphabet blocks for my youngest for awhile now. Last night I was able to make some progress. I will be sol glad when I can have these completed. I think Emme will really enjoy them. The ones ?I have already finished she is carrying around with her. If you would like to get the instructions for these great letter blocks you can head over the Moda Bake Shop. They way they made theirs is quite different than mine. I cut out my letters and fussed them onto the charm squares. Then I did a blanket stitch around them to make them wear better.
Last week I posted about all my tumbler blocks that my friend cut out for me. I started putting them together last night. I think this quilt will bring hours of I Spy fun to my girls. I will continue to post pics of this one as I progress on it.
I also worked on putting some antique blocks together as well. I will post pics of that small quilt when I have it completed.
I think this first experience with the Friday Night Sew In was a Success. I am sure I will join in the fun again next month. I hope so of you will join me.


  1. You made quite a bit of progress! I'm so glad you joined us for the first time. I've been thinking about doing a tumbler pattern quilt for my oldest. He wants 'greens'.

  2. I was surprised at how easy they go together. My friend used an accu cut to cut all my tumblers. Thanks for hosting such a fun virtual event.

  3. Wow you got a lot done. Those alphabet blocks are great and I will definitely be making some for my grandson. Love the tumbler quilt!
