Giveaway Reminder -- FNSI -- Quilt Guild

Just a quick reminder that tonight's the night to give away some fabric!! If you haven't already entered, you still have a little bit of time! 

My Friday Night Sew In was not very productive. I was trying to get another bunch of my scrappy trip around the world strips done, but I've decided that I just can't do random scrappy. I thought I could overcome it and challenge myself, but I can't. OK, maybe I can, but I don't want to. I saw one recently that I really liked on My Quilt Diet.  I think just adding that one consistent color in each block would be easier for me to handle. Maybe I'll undo everything I did last night and start over. 

I went to my first Corvallis Modern Quilt Guild Sew Day. What a great group! I had such a good time just hanging out with these women and talking about sewing and quilting. I got some great tips and, of course, encouragement to attempt free motion quilting, which I've been a little afraid of. Heck, I just might take a class! 

I'm heading out for a bit. Stay tuned for the winner and some FNSI pics.  I think there are only about 36 entries! 


  1. Can't wait to see the pics of the strips and your sew day. :) I think the STATW blocks would look super with one common color through the middle of each one. :)

  2. What Kelll said. :)
    I've recently become intrigued with the free-motion quilting. All I've ever done is "stitch-in-the-ditch" quilting. It never occured to me that there'd be a class--I'll have to check into that!


Thanks for stopping by Lisa Lisa and the Quilt Jam! I love to receive comments, and read each and every one of them!
