Across the Sea Quilt-Along

Across the Sea Quilt-Along

I have joined the Across the Sea Quilt Along, my first quilt-along!  I am so exited to get started.  This past week was cutting all of the pieces.  I just got my fabric so I am cutting everything today.  The quilt-along is designed to be finished in 8 weeks, take a peek at the schedule here.!  We also have a Flickr group for the quilt-along.

Since Christmas is right around the corner I purchased a Christmas Fat Quarter Bundle from Connecting Threads.  I am doing a creme background for the front and an ash background for the back. 

It is not too late, join us!

Reminder tonight is FNSI.  Don't forget to sign up at Handmade by Heidi!

The Friday Night Sew-In is a virtual get together hosted by Handmade by Heidi and her cousin Bobbi (aka Crafty Vegas Mom).

They try to schedule the FNSI the 3rd Friday of each month. Here are the participation guidelines.

1. When the sign-ups are posted - add your name to the list with a link to your blog.
2. Make a post on your blog - letting all your readers know about the sew-in. Spread the word.. we could all use the virtual sewing support and encouragement.

3. On the night of the FNSI - Get your house settled, put on your comfy jammies.. maybe make a cup of tea or pour a glass of wine.. and sit down to work on some of those projects.

4. Then, sometime on Saturday - publish a post about what you worked on.. show us a picture or two on Flickr. There is a FNSI group on Flickr if you haven't already joined. Totally optional.

The name of the Flickr group is FNSI.

Each month they giveaway something awesome to one lucky participant.. some times we select 2 people.

Row Robin

Mailed the quilt that I was working on for my Row Robin today.  Boop really let us do whatever we wanted to do. Our favorite block, color, theme,  etc. Everybody really took a queue from what she did for her first row, Betty Boop and blues.  I love the zig zag pattern I am seeing all over the place, really want to do a whole quilt with this pattern, so I decided to do this for my favorite block with her blue theme.

I think it turned out really well.

SNEAK PEEK...I have already received the next quilt I am to work on, got it on Saturday (this is the last one and then I get mine back). It is "Something Southwestern".  I have so many ideas for this row.  I took a snap shot of this great fabric that is already on the quilt.  I love it!  Such vibrant color.

This Friday is Friday Night Sew In.  Don't forget to sign up at Handmade by Heidi!
