Well I had a very hectic Friday evening that I hardly had time to take part in the FNSI - firstly I dropped a colleague off on the way home from work, then I collected my daughter Alice from her job after school, called in to see a friend before supper (Hi Fran - was great to see you!) to collect a superb pressie for one of my sisters (more about that later) and then after a quick meal took my other daughter Beth to the railway station as she was off to stay with her boyfriend for the weekend. Honestly, talk about spinning alot of plates.....
.....well, I couldn't NOT take part, so cut lots of strips of fabric for binding my quilts that Janette quilted so beautifully - firstly some aqua and white spotty Bliss fabric by Bonnie and Camille for my Layer Cake quilt. I just adore spotty bindings.....
.....then I was slicing up Patisserie fabric by Fig Tree Quilts for my Tail Feathers quilt. I haven't blogged much about this one, but it really is so gorgeous it deserves a whole blog post all to itself. Now I've just got to attach the binding to the back, which I prefer to do by hand. Good job I've got a new thimble!
