FNSI for November
Many thanks to Wendy for hosting our virtual sew-in. You can see what everyone was working on here on Wendy's blog.
I started the afternoon with the intention of adding the borders to my Hexathon quilt.
I had not squared the top up since adding the large plain section and this took a little while! At this point I was winging it a bit so decided to add the plain borders first which I did - just a small pic as it was raining outside and space indoor was at a premium!
At this point I realised that I had miscalculated on the ammount of bias strip that I needed for the coloured flange - by half! So that will have to be a job for another day. I was however able to use the off cuts of border fabric to extend the pieced borders and I have those joined now ready for my next session. Lunch guests tomorrow means that my large work table - ie the dining room table has to be cleared.
So not as much achieved as I had hoped but at least the task has been started and I now know where I am going.
Friday evening called for some relaxing hand sewing so I made this Christmas flower for one of my swap groups.
Now I am looking forward to seeing what everyone got up to. Have a great weekend.
