March Friday Night Sew-In

Last night was Friday Night Sew-In hosted by Heidi and Bobbi. As usual I went to my sister's house and sewed. Posted below is what I worked on. It's the backing to a quilt that I have entered in my guild's quilt show, which will be held in April.  I've always wanted a red and whit quilt so I made an Irish Chain and my sister will be quilting it. Seem that this quilt just didn't want to get finish, I bought the backing in February thinking it was a queen size quilt, but when I got home I measured it only to find that it is a king-sized quilt! Is there a lesson here? Hmmm... Maybe I should measure before I buy  backing fabric. Ya think? Any ways I had to order batting, white of course, Joann's was having a sale with a coupon so I ordered online got my discount, it arrive sooner than expected, I opened the box and...Surprise! I had ordered Warm and Natural instead of Warm and White!  So I ordered Warm  and White batting from Hancock's of Paducah, for a better price I might add, went shopping at my mother's, and found enough white material to finish the back. Now it's sitting at Judy's house waiting to be quilted.  Love ya Sis is it done yet? (lol)
As usual we had a great time. I haven't sewn since the last Friday night Sew-In and it felt good to get back into it again. The weather here  has been beautiful I believe it has hit 70's today and I spied a crocus poking it head out to say Hello!
Enjoy Your Weekend! 


A spring greeting.
