And the results are in...

4 out of 6. I think that is pretty good. First I sewed the bottom row onto My son's quilt and it is now the right size. Then I worked on the log cabin blocks for the back of my sampler quilt but I think they look to good to put on the back of a quilt. Next I finished this paper pieced block for a swap that i am in. We were told to use yellow orange and black and any other colors. I hope this looks good with all thothers.
I recently joined an International Round Robin that starts in September. I am mailing my block to Brazil. We will have 6 rounds and I should get my block back next year at this time. I went with an I spy themed center. Everyone has novelty fabrics don't they? I am hoping to write some I spy lines on the backing for the kids to find.
I also got the seams ripped on my Crazy Mom Quilt along. My side strip should be 28 7/8 and I stretched it to 30 1/4. No wonder it was a little wavy along the edge.
Well the motivaton of the Friday Night Sew In has worked its magic and I have gotten a couple things off my to do lists. Thank You Heidi. I can't wait till September.

I love jelly rolls. I am a beginning quilter.

Friday night sew in is a neat concept. Our quilters only get together one day a month. Not enough time to quilt since we are usually catching up on everyone's lives. Gotta be a better waY.
