Friday Night Sew-In!

Well, it was a Friday Night Sew-In and it was great to be a part of it--even though I didn't get the entire Friday night sewing! I started after I had gone with my daughter to finish up some things for her to go back to college; for her senior year! So getting going about 9:00 p.m. was not what I had originally planned, but anytime sewing is better than no time!

Let's start with the fabric collection:
You can see that I am working on a Halloween quilt. The name of it is, The Big EZ, by Cottonwood patterns; I absolutely love it for big prints! The Halloween cats are too cute to cut into small pieces! As you can also see, I have a furry "helper" in the far right corner. He will definitely become more obvious as time goes on. I should have entered him in Pets on Quilts!
Next, I have chosen the two fabrics for the four-patch and cut and pieced them all together:
I also cut all of the strips and corner squares--way too many of them (120 of each).
Now to cut the large 7 1/2" squares of three different fabrics, here comes the helper:
I will be continuing this tonight (Saturday) and tomorrow--hopefully being able to show you a finished top in a day or two. This top goes together so easily--look at my previous post with the flower quilt!
While looking at fabrics here are some other pictures of my cat hard at work helping me decide which fabrics should stay and which should go:
It really is amazing I get anything completed with all the "help" I get! Sometimes, he rearranges pieces at night if they haven't been sewn together yet--that is always fun!
Well, I had a fantastic Friday Night Sew--can't wait for next month! I really accomplished alot more than it seems to show!
Sew, Quilt and Enjoy!
