How was your FNSI?

Mine went a bit like this.
Great Granny 
got a look at first. I had three left to make

Now I have two as I got a little distracted and got my

"My Favourite Things"
quilt top ready to quilt

then moved onto my
Merry Merry Snowman 
Quilt and pieced block 8 and hung it with block 9

then decided to get the appliqué ready

This is the block that "sold me" on this quilt and I still love it :o)

Now both blocks are ready to stitch.

Lastly, I went back to this.

I found these Quilt Clips yesterday at Spotlight.
How did I not know about them?

I then finished off my night with a glass of wine and some quilting.
First a bit of "in the ditch" then some outlining of the Appliqué.

Looks like my plan of attack this weekend will  should be more work on this one
but with my track record last night who knows!
Off now to grab a coffee and to see what everyone else got up to.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Looks like you got a fair bit done last night Sharon.

  2. Sharon, did you get any sleep?!? I'm impressed by how much you got done. What's your secret?
    By the way, I love using those blue clips. It's like having an extra set of hands!

    1. Hi Nicole, I have my family "fully trained" so that when I tell them that is it FNSI they back away quietly! lol

  3. That's why we have so many projects on the go at once - for the variety. Sounds
    Iike you had fun.

  4. Need to get to Spotlight! Your snowmen look fabulous!

  5. I love that winter quilt, especially those snowmen in the pickup truck! They're adorable :)

  6. Oh my gosh, you got so much done! Where would we be without FNSI and a glass of wine?!

  18. Love all your projects, Sharon. Come and share on Applique Thursday and possibly win a book. Your Favorite Things is darling! So are the snowmen.

  19. Hi, Sharon! Wow!! You got a lot done there. :D I just *love* the snowmen in the pickup, as well as your "My Favorite Things." Thanks so much for sharing them at BOMs Away.

    Hey - when you do your blanket stitching on your applique, do you use any kind of stabilizer on the back? Or do you actually do that as a part of the quilting?

  20. Wow, all that in one night? Those snow men are super cute. Hope they don't get in trouble for riding in the back of a pick up;)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment as I know your time is valuable. hugs xx
