FNSI Results - June

It looks like last night was my first FNSI since June, I think I made the most of it but don't have many photos.

I spent the whole evening working on my first Xmas quilt. First steps was to get the blocks arranged in a pleasing way and remove the dog ears. 


From there on in it was chain piecing interspersed with pressing to eventually achieve 18 blocks. 



I'm really pleased with how they've come together. Now all I have to do is arrange 16 of the blocks ready for making the top. Not much actual sewing left but plenty of head scratching first!

FNSI is kindly hosted monthly by Wendy of Sugarlane Designs, pop over to her blog to see what everyone else got up to and, if you're free the third Friday of the month join in with the virtual quilt along.
