FNWF results

It was a hot night here last night, the sea breeze seemed to stop about 9pm and the house just got hotter and hotter. I did manage to get some things done

I made the binding and attached it to the Aussie hero quilt, now I need to do the hand sewing and finish in the cotton endy bits

I got part way through this block and as I was ironing realised it was completely wrong, I had created a fish not a star!!
this is what I was supposed to be making!!

this is the block after lots of unsewing and re sewing!! These blocks are going into a dignity quilt some of the Guild members are making for a local care home. They are supposed to come out at twelve and a half inches, I have made two and they are both different sizes, not a lot different but not the same.
I also did a few leaves on the applique wall hanging, will slowly get back into it.
Heading back to bed now for a cuppa and a read before it gets to hot again.
Thank you for being the hostess with the mostest Cheryll.
You can catch up with the other FNWF'ers over at Cheryll's blog.
Happy sewing.

The hot weather muddles the brain a little. But you got onto the right track again.
A few mores leaves done on the appliqué, that's good progress.

Well done with your progress when it was so hot. Here in Dunedin,NZ it has been a strange summer and last night was perfect sewing weather. Good that you picked up your mistake before you went too far.

Cute fish block ;-) but happy you were able to correct it into a star. These blocks are beautyful! Happy binding-stitching!

I have to say that I like the "fishy' block even though it was not intended. These things happen. Keep cool.

Well at least you know how to do a fish block should the occassion arise lol! It is going to be a lovely quilt. I find sewing the binding down very relaxing x

Unsewing blocks is a familiar thing here. I under stand about the hot. Here in Gisborne I think we are one of the only places in NZ getting a real summer this year

I think you've been channeling me! I did an awful lot of that sort of thing around Christmas. It's a gorgeous block.
