OK, so this month's Friday Night Sew In didn't exactly go as well as last month. In fact, I didn't manage to sew a single stitch. But, I did get a lot done, believe it or not!!
I spent a lot of time preparing for sewing. I cut all of my fabric for the pieced backing that I have planned for the back of my Supernova quilt, totally based on Jeni's amazing Plus quilt from last year. That was one of my first favorites when I started using Flickr last year, and it's been on my To Make list since then. I had so much It's a Hoot leftover after the Supernova quilt that I wanted to make another quilt top basically for the back of this quilt. Here's hoping I can pull off making the seams line up.
My dog was positively freaked out about all of the fabric all over the floor. He sat in front of me, shaking, pretty much the entire time that I was working on laying out the squares. Now that I'm all done, he's calmed down, chilling out on the couch, but he was just so bothered by how busy I was tonight. It was so strange! He's always been neurotic, but this was a new level of neuroses.
The other thing I worked on was ironing the fabric for my queen bee month in the String Me Along bee next month. I still haven't 100% decided on what I'm going to do, but I am using the fabric I showed first on WiP Wednesday. Now that I've ironed it all, I hope that will force me to make a decision and start cutting!
ETA: BTW, you must hop on over to Sew Fresh Fabrics' blog, as they are holding a seriously major giveaway. A medium flat-rate box full of scraps!!! That's more than enough to make a whole quilt!! Tell them I sent you :)
