My Friday Night Sew In

Handmade by Heidi

I think my first FNSI was successful.  I decided to continue working on my Great Granny.  I continued to chain piece all of the rows and then bagged them so they didn't get mixed up and ended up with this:

I continued to work on them and put a few more together - ready to trim and place the corners on.

I'm using Tapestry by Joanna Figueroa for Moda and bought it from here.

I think this one is my favorite of the blocks I created last night - pity the photo is less than perfect.

 I love how the red really jumps out in this one.

Well this will be ok in amongst all of the others.  It's funny how after spending so long putting the little squares together in bundles that I liked, they somehow look very different once they are sewn up.

I then picked up my stitching and finished off this one:

Before beginning on this one:

and it was at the second t that I decided or rather my eyes decided that I needed to call it a night.

Thank you FNSI - can't wait for the next one.
