Tonight is the Friday Night Sew-In for March.
So, after a quick early dinner,
I got busy in my sewing room.
I'm still trying to catch up after joining the
"Schnibbles for a Year" group 4 months late.
I had almost all the nine patch and the snowball blocks made for the "Cindy Lou Who" pattern, so my goal tonight is to get the little quilt top all sewn together.
Yogi loves it when I spend the evening in my sewing room!
I'm used 2 charm packs from the Mary Engelbreit "Carolers" collection. They are so bright and fun. I love her use of primary colors and lots of black and white. My whole sewing room is decorated with her stuff!
It looks quite different than the one on the pattern, huh? I cut up the leftover 6 blue charm squares and made a thin inner border with red corner squares.
I used some black Christmas fabric from my stash for the outer border. It's not from the same collection but it is a Mary Engelbreit fabric, so it goes well, don't ya think?
Tomorrow I've got to do some yardwork to do outside while the weather is cooperating, but do hope to be able to get it quilted and the binding sewn on ready for the handwork during TV tomorrow night! Tomorrow I'll be running to the store in the morning to get the "New Moon" DVD!! I've already seen it in the theater... on opening night, in fact. Let me give anyone planning on going to see "Eclipse" when it comes out in the theater some realllllllly good advice-
DON'T GO ON OPENING NIGHT
AT THE 7:30 SHOWING!!!That was the mistake my husband and I made when we went to see "New Moon". We were surrounded by teenage girls screaming everytime Edward and Jacob came on the screen.... YIKES!!
