February Friday Night Results

I hope everyone made some progress on projects last night. I was able to get quite a bit done.

We had an event at the school last night and after sitting outside in the cool air - I really wanted to come home and snuggle on the couch. But, as intended, the Friday Night Sew-in commitment gave me the little umph I needed to get in there and sew. Once I started.. I was on a roll!

I have been working on some long overdue home improvement projects. Some big - some small. I will be sharing them with you as they get done. One of them is a re-do of my disorganized laundry room. I'm actually going to decorate it (maybe that will make laundry more fun?.. no?) So, I'm working on a wall hanging quilt that will go above my washer and dryer.

The top is almost done. This was totally, 100% inspired by this post from Jacquie. I fell in love the minute I saw hers. I will show you more detailed pictures once it's complete. I still need to paint the laundry room too.. getting behind the washer and dryer will be a trick for sure.

I also worked on my Postage Stamp quilt-along tutorial that I will be posting for you all tomorrow afternoon (so excited).

What did you work on? Did you make some progress on your WIP's? And since sharing and encouragement to get things done is what the Friday Night Sew-in's are all about - don't forget to share what you worked on last night. You can share on your blog - or on the Flickr group page.. or both.

The giveaway winners will be selected tomorrow from all those who participated and shared. This is what I will be sending one lucky winner..

Bobbi will select a winner over on her blog tomorrow too.. can't wait to see who wins! Pin It

I LOVE your clothes line quilt top :) Oh so cute. That would get me into the laundry room a little more often, or at least brighten my day when I went in there.

Patty said...

What a cute idea a clothesline quilt for the laundry room. :^)

What a perfect wall hanging for a laundry room. Really cute!

I participated in my first Friday Night Sew-In last night :). I got a later start than expected, but I got a second wind and accomplished my goal of cutting out all the fabric pieces for a quilt top for my son. Now I'm ready to get sewing today!

Cute clothesline (and who's going to know if you paint behind your washer and dryer?). I stayed up WAY too late sewing after the excitement of John Montgomery's skeleton GOLD and our women's curling team squeaking out a win over Denmark in a tie-breaker. Will take photos after breakfast. Thanks again for the sew-in!!!!

Crystal Hendrix said...

I love that you created this! I had a fun time with the Sew in! I will make sure I post pictures today!

Kat said...

I got two tops finished and two and a half quilts basted last night! One of them even required piecing the backing! I had to post pictures one per post (they're from my phone), so here's the best way to see them:

I love the wall hanging for the laundry room, look forward to seeing the finished result

kwiltmakr said...

The wall hanging is so cute, I think I saw Jackies before too. Clever. I got some cutting done for my sew in project.Looking forward to the postage stamp tutorial.

Kim said...

Oh yes, I sewed! I posted on my blog what I worked on too. Thanks for the nudge--it helped me keep going last night when I ran out of thread on the first project.

Cheryl said...

Love your sewing line quilt!! Worked on my eye spy quilt and will shortly post my progress. I just love this Friday night sew and now I'm looking forward to the Postage Stamp quilt event!

Amy said...

I just love clothes lines on quilts and paintings, etc. They are such fun subjects. We are redoing our laundry room soon and I was thinking of doing something similar! I love the way yours is turning out!

Bobbi said...

that quilt is SOOO fun!!! cant wait to see your laundry room when done.

Dandelion Quilts said...

Your laundry room will be so cute! :) Well, I worked on 2 purses, actually finished one. Then I got up this morning and finished the other!

Thanks again for all of the organizing and fun.

Thank you for organising Friday night sew-in and I hope that it will be on again next month. As a full-time worker it is hard to find just "sewing time" but this is definitely "do-able" and I was able to complete my project. I am enjoying blog hopping and seeing what everyone has been working on.

Rachel said...

That's going to be such a cute little quilt for your laundry room. What a great idea... although I still don't think it will make actually doing the laundry more fun. At least you'll have something fun to look at while you're folding towels.

Last night I completed the quilt top I had been working on. The Friday Night Sew-in was a great idea; my husband wasn't impressed, though. He planned on us watching a movie. Unfortunately, my sewing machine isn't in the living room! haha

PunkiePie said...

Here's what I got done!

suedio said...

Can't wait to see this laundry room quilt finished. It soooo appeals to me . . .

Thanks for once again organising the Sew-In. I was maybe not as productive as I'd hoped, but I enjoyed myself. Such a nice way to spend the evening.

Regards, Sue

Love the clothesline quilt. What a neat idea.

I enjoyed the sew in. I managed to finish a quilt top that was two years in the making. Looking forward to March's Sew In.

Lisa said...

I love the clothesline quilt! I might just do that too!! It would be fun to use some of the clothes that my kids have grown out of!! Please enter me in the drawing! Thanks!

Joanne said...

Love the laundry quilt. I decorated my laundry room with a little quilt that says "LAUNDRY", made from some of my husband's old shirts, buttons included.
Thanks for hosting the "FNSI". I usually don't sew on Friday nights, so this was a nice change, and I got a lot accomplished!!
Looking forward to starting the postage stamp quilt.
Thanks again!! ♥

sewbeeit said...

Thanks for organizing this. It's amazing how motivating it is. I worked on projects other than sewing but I'm so happy to have accomplished so much in one night.

Thanks ladies, I was able to get a mini top done. It measures 22-1/2" square.

Vivian said...

I ended up with a migraine so went to bed EXTREMELY early and did nothing fun yesterday. But it looks like a lot got some things done, way to go!

Barb said...

Oh you did well! I love your laundry room! I didn't finish but made great progress--love Friday Night Sew-In! Thanks so much ladies for your organization!

Valerie said...

Oh I love your clothes line quilt!! I haven't got to post yet but hopefully will tomorrow. Thank you and Bobbi for hosting this. It really does motivate me. I also felt like just resting but I knew all of you were sewing so I got busy!

Kim said...

I fell in love with Jacquie's clothesline quilt, too. I have a friend who would totally love to have a quilt like this ~ who knew how interesting and inspiring a quilt with a clothesline on it can be? I think of that fresh air and sunshine smell that comes from hanging laundry outdoors. Glad to see that you made your own laundry day quilt! Very nice. :-D

Shiree said...

hey it was a great night, thanks heaps for hosting, i pieced a nine-patch form a jelly roll that I have been wanting to do for ages, just need to sort out the sashings and border when we go to town this week!

Narelle said...

If it wasn't for the Friday Night Sew-In, I wouldn't have achieved anything.
Thanks for the push!

Sue said...

Your quilt top is a ripper. Nothing can make doing laundry more pleasant, but you will have a lovely quilt to look at soon. The sew-in was a lot of fun on Friday night. It gave me the motivation I needed.

Karen said...

Your laundry room quilt is going to be a big hit!
