Friday Night Sewing

Yep! Last night was the January FNSI! I was able to get a bit of sewing done :D
Did you? 
Last week I showed you this:

My cut squares for the Sew Scrap Along at Pleasant Home.

Since my husband was out of town this week I was able to sew them together into this:

Sew last night I began ironing the blocks and organizing them onto my design wall, trying not to over think the placement of the scrappy blocks. I arranged them into 10 blocks across and 12 blocks down. 
[The whole quilt will be 10 across by 18 down but I was running out of room.]

Then I marked them to keep them in order and began sewing the rows together. I got several done before I called it quits for the day night.

The bottom 5 rows are sewn together.

And this is what I have left to arrange.

60 scrappy blocks!

Now I'll be heading over to check out what other sewing was accomplished that night. Join me here.


  1. I love a great scrappy quilt! But it is so funny how 'organized' disorganization is you know! LOL I pin #s to my things as well because after I take the time to lay them out, I want them to look JUST LIKE THAT!! LOL Great job! I'll bet you get the rest dont this weekend!!

  2. Love the scrappy look! I've considered joining the quilt-along, but the quilt I'm working on currently has a deadline - so it's my top priority for now. You got a lot done, and it looks great!

  3. Oh I love a scrappy quilt. You really got a lot done & I like the placement. I'll have to come back and see the finish. Something tells me, it won't be long.
    Thanks for the visit, I'll be seeing you soon.

  4. What a happy quilt! I love the bright colors. You accomplished quite a lot last night!

  5. It looks fabulous. I've been following the Sew Scraps Along myself and have a mind to do the scrappy Dresdens at some point. I love the quilt in your header, it's stunning.

  6. What a great amount of work you got done. I love the picnic quilt and think it is an awesome way to use up scraps.

  7. Love how your scrappy quilt is turning out,very colourful :) Barb.
