A little bit of sewing +FNSI

A few weeks ago I joined the

I picked my layer cake and downloaded the patterns over the next few weeks (a new block comes out every two weeks) but then didn't get around to starting my quilt.  Last night I was able to grab a little time to sew so I made the first three blocks.
Block One:
Block Two:
I'm not completely happy with my version of block two and will probably redo it but here it is for now....
Block Three:  I plan to make a couple of very small hexie flowers to sit in this basket.
Tonight is FNSI and hopefully I will make Block Four and make the little hexie flowers.

It is always fun to be part of a Friday Night Sew-In.  My DH is a harness racing fan and always goes to the trots on a Friday night so I can peacefully sit at home and sew.  And I get to watch TV without someone channel flicking - what is it with men and TV remote controls?
Heidi from Handmade by Heidi organises FNSI's for us.  There are always over 100 participants.  I love to think of all those others happily sitting and sewing along with me.  There is still time for you to join in.
