Friday Night Sew-In (Just a few days late!)

I signed up for Friday Night Sew-in and I did sew Friday night. 
 But did I post on Saturday? No of course not!  

So - I guess I'll do that now.

See here's what I worked on.  The Stay at Home Round Robin.
I cut it down - and made it square.   Then added a green border.  

Just a little green border.  Then I fussed and planned and even used graph paper (Thanks Sunny for teaching me how!!!) and came up with a huge triangle border.  

Don't worry - it will look better when I get done with it.

Then I went to bed, and in the middle of the night I woke up and I started stewing.
  It's not right and I want to change the design a bit.  
Uhhh.... this is why I like patterns so that they tell me what to do and I'm not waking up in the middle of the night to change my mind about the design!

Okay so back to the drawing board - otherwise known as graph paper. 

I re-sized my my triangle to a slightly smaller one.

See how the triangle how aligns with the center of the square instead of with the borders?  
Yes, this will work!  I'll show you later, after I sew it what I have in mind.

And believe it or not that's all I accomplished in sewing over the weekend!



  1. Sweet -- looks like you had fun on your FNSI! :)

  2. A busy week-end, very nice, but I'm not sure about that middle of the night quilting. Your creative juices are working overtime. Hugs

  3. great work! i was going well until i realised my squares were not quite right!

  4. Your weekend sewing produced a darling piece!

  5. Great to see you making more progress on your SAHR. The planning always takes a while - and is worthwhile to get the look you are after - I'm sure you will have the rest of this border done in no time.

  6. Better "not all" than nothing!It is not only the month for Halloween, but breast cancer awareness month!!! Treat yourself or a loved one because you care! I am just stopping by with a reminder to do your self breast exam.
    Here's a fun place to start! Everybody loves boob lube!

  7. I really like the center block you have come up with--LOVE the birdie! I can't believe you woke up in the middle of the night! :o) Can't wait to see more.

  8. Looking good. Can't wait to see where this goes!
