Friday Night Sew in Results

Are you surprised to see me posting on Saturday about my Friday Night Sew-in results?  Boy oh Boy I sure am!!

So here's what happened.

Hubby very graciously volunteered to help me by ironing the backing for my quilt.

I was a bit tired and just sat back enjoying the life of leisure.
This was my world last night; me and KitKat watching.  (It was so fun)

Then we had to run to WalMart to buy some blue painter's tape and a few other thing like cereal and milk.  Unbelievably it took us only 15 minutes to spend $73.00. 

So after ironing and pinning we now have the quilt sandwiched. 

And this morning I'll start quilting it.

Happy Sewing,


  1. Not fair! I want an assistant. Very pretty quilt - I can't wait to see it finished.

    1. Me too, Sunny! I think she is trying to make us jealous by flaunting her perfectly helpful, quilty husband in front of us. LOL

  2. Is the pattern Sunkissed Jewel Box on Moda Bakeshop?? If it is I have just cut my fabric out to do this quilt!! I have used Fig Tree Buttercup but I love it in your colours ...hope mine looks as nice. Hugs x

  3. Okay, I have so much to say here. First, Wow! You had him ironing while you laid back?! Cool! Second, Kit Kat is so cute. I just love that dog. Third, your quilt is so amazing. I want it! Fourth, I can't believe you got it all based and are ready to quilt it now! Fifth, I can rack up a grocery bill pretty fast, too. :-) I thought you were going to say you were amazed you could get in and out of Wally World in 15 min! Haha! That would have been more shocking to me. I usually spend that much time just in the check-out line! LOL. Can't wait to see how your quilt comes out. Your FNSI was very productive!

  4. WOW! Amazing hubby. Your quilt is beautiful.

  5. Your quilt looks gorgeous, I can't wait to see it quilted.

  6. That is an amazing quilt, Linda! Looking forward to seeing it quilted. And really, at first I was amazed that your husband wanted to learn to quilt, and now you have him ironing while you sit with your feet up with the dog? How do you do it?? lol :o) xo

  7. Your quilt is gorgeous, as is your handsome helper!!
