Last night's FNWF was fairly productive and, although there are no finishes in sight, I'm pretty happy with where I've left everything.
First up I started on a pillow that I bought as a kit. I had already cut the strips so it was just a matter of sewing them together. There are some wool applique flowers to go along the central piece, but I just didn't feel like doing them last night, so this is as far as got with this project.
Next up, I got to work on Block 2 of Chick Jubilee. Again I had already prepared the freezer paper shapes, and just needed to spray starch and press the fabric pieces into shape. For the circles I used aluminium foil wrapped around the shape to help create a neat edge. The wheels looked perfect when I removed the freezer paper after using this method, but as you can see, in the process of glueing each piece into place, the pointy bits have appeared. Not impressed! I didn't do any of the stitching last night as our lighting is not very good and my eyesight is even worse, but I did a wee bit this morning. I've made it very hard on myself by sticking too many pieces on too soon, but I'm not removing them as it was a mission with all those curves!
These little lovelies were what I tackled last. I have wanted to try these for so long!! I found what I think is absolutely stunning fabric, and just had to try my hand at hexagons, at last! I think they're perfect!
This final photo is of Block 1 of the FQS Mystery Block of the Month. I could pretend that I rustled this one up last night along with everything else, but no, this was last weekend's project. It needs a good press, but I'm really pleased with how this turned out. It only required a little unpicking here and there to get things lining up right, and I'm feeling rather proud of how I've improved since my first attempts at piecing.
On that note, I will leave you and go and see what the other lovely ladies got up to last night. Thank you so much for having a look here, and I hope you will visit again. And thank you Cheryll for hosting FNWF.
