Friday Night With Friends!

 I got a bit of a late start to sewing last night but managed to start cutting pieces for the chicken quilt backing.
I need to start joining some parts so I can work out sizes of other pieces.
I also did a little preparation work.

I'm going to join our friends in the Northern Hemisphere this afternoon while they are having their FNWF! Hopefully I may even managed to get the backing finished. If not, it will be an enjoyable afternoon!

PS. I think I've managed to solve my comment problem!

Hi Christine, forgive my late FNWF visit - great prep for the quilt backing, it will look as impressive as the front!
