A productive weekend.....


A few times a year the Friday Night sewers have some time away at a nearby place.  I love going and sew sew sew all day long.....

I had some catch up sewing to do so I worked on my scrappy rainbow challenge little beach houses....


They look pretty cute and have joined the pile of purple and teal houses......

Some time ago I inherited a UFO from Kris ..... I had previously sewn all the blocks together in their layers.....


... and they have been sitting in my drawer waiting for attention....

This weekend I got them all sewn together....

A lovely warm raggy flannel quilt


I just have the clipping, then wash and dry, wash and dry to get the frayed edges and it will be ready for snuggling in winter here....  thank you Kris..... I didn't have one of these for myself - now I do!


I'm very glad to have these self springing clippers for this job, nevertheless I will be doing them a little bit at a time.... 

I'm still calling it a finish though????? is that cheating???

I did work on a couple of other projects.... but have a little bit more stitching to do on them till they are completely finished.... all in all a very productive weekend.... thanks to Marion at The Quilters Angel who hosts it.... and to all the others who go for providing the entertainment!

Righto, Gotto Go.... housework ignores the fact I have been busy sewing!!!

I guess that's what they call "painting the town red"! No? Oh! Regardless, your town is lovely. In my book, yes, you can call this quilt finished even if it isn't all clipped. Because the way I see it, a finished quilt is a quilt you can use and wash it. Well, that's my definition but I might be wrong. hehehehe. Anywho! I think it is gorgeous and I love the colors in it. It is also perfect for the time of year as it sports the first colors of Autumn when the grass is still green. Probably what your back yard is starting to look like? No? Not yet? Good! Enjoy it while it last. ;^)

Of course it's not cheating......finishing a UFO is still a finish, doesn't matter who started it! I love those little houses.

Never the "C" word... "creative" is a better "C" word...xox

Definitely a finish, Fiona; it's going to be so snuggly come winter time, great work!
Love all the little red house, they look good together like that - just like a little estate.

Great projects! I haven't made a raggy quilt yet. One of these days.

KaHolly said...

Love your litle houses and your raggy quilt is lovely too, a finish is a finish, another drawer empty!! Time away is so good for getting uniterrrupted sewing happening.

Lovely results from your productive week end. Always fun sewing with friends.

Lovely collection of houses to add to your neighbourhood. And well done with completing the raggy quilt too. Very productive.

Oh well done with the flannel ufo! It is so pretty... the first one I did I had to snip it all by hand, and the spring scissors do make it so much easier.. Then I got the Go! cutter and it cuts it all for me :) Much much easier, lol! Love your beach houses too! xx

Louise said...

I do love those raggy quilts, but they are a pain in the hands to clip them. You can claim it as a finish as you keep clipping along because the quilt is completely usable right now! Is the back all one fabric, or is it also a bit scrappy?

Lin said...

Your quilt looks great - still on my list to do. xx

2ne said...

Love your rag quilt

Janet said...

Love the cute houses! Isn't it great to have a finish, even if it isn't all the way there. You know you'll finish up that clipping pretty quickly. So much fun sewing with friends. I have a session with friends coming up next weekend.

A great weekend's sewing Fiona - your houses look really great and also a lovely finish with the raggy quilt - yes, surely it's a finish!! (Bet it is by now, anyway!)
