Friday Night With Friends

I headed into my sewing room early and got to 
work on Nelson's new quilt. The top is finished but I need to add 
a panel to the backing as it isn't quite wide enough.
After I put the panel together, I found it needed extra 10 inches 
or so in length for the quilter. I've been using all the leftovers 
and have planned how I am going to add the extra length. 
But it was starting to do my head in so I stopped before 
I messed it up and will finish it today. Then I'll have to wait 
until we're out of lock down to take it to my quilter.
After dinner I sat down to work on some more of my
Heartstrings stitcheries. Finished off this cute one.
And made a start on this one.
I also realised I hadn't stitched the little flower on 
the caravan's flag so did that. 
The pineapple block was done earlier in the week.
Thanks to Chez for hosting us last night. 
You can see what others got up to here.

Nelson's new quilt is great. Love those blues and greens and the grey sashings are perfect. Cute little stitcheries, too. I hope when you return to the quilt you will be able to resolve the issues you have with it.

The little stitcheries are gorgeous.
Well done getting on to the quilt backing. So smart to use up all the pieces you have. Lock down makes us use what we have which is wonderful.
