My FNSI Results

I had a very productive Friday Night!

A few months back, I joined the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of the Month. I joined late so they mailed me 4 months to catch me up. Then I received Octobers block in the mail and as I stared at my pile of 5 pkgs... I knew if I didn't get caught up now, I would be in trouble.


 
So, I spent Friday Night making all these...

 
Now, most of you have been around the FNSI for awhile. So you know that I am a true believer in preparation. During the days before FNSI, I cut all the fabric for each block so it would all be ready Friday and all I would need to do is just sit down and start sewing. If I hadn't done that preparation, I would just be showing you a pile of cut fabric.
 
I was a little shocked to see how much fabric they send you for these block of the month clubs. I definitely have enough fabric to make 2 of each block. I just might do that over the next few months.
 
Aaaah.. it feels good to be caught up! Now I'm off to see what some of you worked on!

Those are really gorgeous. I love the colors too.

Good for you! I stopped doing BOM's, because once I get behind (and I always do) I tend to lose interest, and future installments get tossed into a box, never to be seen again. Love your fabric choices.

Congratulations on your finished blocks. I've signed up for these blocks too, but have not done one thing with them. TFS yours.

Nice of you to admit you had all the cutting taken care before Friday night... I saw the picture first and thought, WOW!, she works fast! Well, I'm still impressed that you got all five of them pieced in one night! And they are so cute!

Great effort for a Friday night even with all the prep. Now how easy is next months going to be to get done being one little lonesome block :)

Leah said...

Great work!

Roseanne said...

I have been doing the same BOM and the colours are so gorgeous! You are right about the amount of fabric - I always have a lot left over too! I have only just received my Oct block and it will have to sit for a while with all the other WIPs I need to finish first for Christmas!
