FNSI results

I had a good night sewing last night, managed to get the next Aussie Hero quilt together...very simple design, now to try and decide on some quilting
front....

and back......

and I managed to get the stitchery trimmed...had a woops there as I trimmed it to what I thought was eight and a half inches, but when I checked it, it was nine inches so I happily took half an inch off each side and duh!!!! then realised what I had done! So my inner square is smaller than most! But that us ok. Then I went to put in the clock mechanism only to find there isn't a small nut as called for in the directions...so everything ground to a halt!! will have to go to the local hardware shop and see  if I can get another.
Off to Wendy's now to see what the other FNSIer's got up to.
Happy sewing.

You did have a productive evening..........I sat with my stitching in my hand watching a movie, but didn't really do much stitching at all!!

Sometimes things just don't go as planned to they?
Part of the challenge is getting around the obstacles.
Are you going to AQC tomorrow?
