Friday Night Sew-In ~ November 2021 ~ Progress and a Finish!

"Friday Night Sew-In" is hosted by Wendy Bertello at Sugarlane Designs .  FNSI is set for the 3rd Friday of each month (Australia-time) but as participants are joining in from all over the world, you can participate any time from Thursday - Saturday, depending on where you are.


I am so excited!

I have officially finished the I-Spy Quilt I have been working on for the past few months.  It will be gifted on December 4th at my cousin's baby shower.  The quilt is on the larger side for a baby quilt, but I wanted it to be able to grow with the baby into toddler age.  I made my girls an I-Spy quilt when they were young and we had such fun playing and snuggling with that quilt.  Sweet memories!

Here is the obligatory picture of the hubby holding up the finished quilt!

I ordered the charms off of etsy and machine pieced the charms.  Then I took over 2 months to hand quilt the squares.  I will admit that I sewed the binding by machine because I really wanted to have a finish for FNSI.  Plus, why not!  lol

I adore the dragonfly fabric I used for the backing.  Luckily I bought a bit extra to add to my stash :)

Here's a silly picture of the hubby just because :)

I have loved participating in FNSI!  I can't believe the motivation it gave me to finish up this quilt even if my fingers are a bit sore now...



  1. Congratulations on the finish. It's adorable and I'm sure it will be treasured.

  2. Many hours of fun to be had looking for items. Nice work.

  3. That is such a fun happy quilt!! its good for Hubby to be silly haha!

  4. Wonderful finish and on time! That part (to me) is the hardest. There will be loads of fun for the little one finding all the special prints. Hope you're having a good week.
