FNWF

Last night was our virtual sewing night in blogland hosted by the lovely  Cheryll from Gone Stitching. She once again left the key under the mat so we could let ourselves in and have fun...so trusting lol!
Hubby and I were on babysitting duty last evening and so I  knew I wouldn't get any stitching done so I had a FAWF instead.
After making a gaff with the  amount of small hexie flowers I needed for my Roma quilt I had lost momentum. So I  laid out what I had for a little ponder.

I quite liked this layout and I had enough flowers and more importantly it meant that I could move on...so I trimmed off the gorgeous FG charm squares (a gift from Cheryll) and sewed them together.

I am pleased with the result....
I am going to  applique something in the corners but ...still thinking. My next dilemma is the next row. I was trying not to  have solid borders but I think it may need it. Plus I have to try and keep the dimensions so that all the other bigger applique blocks will fit. I am so not mathematically minded...lots to consider still.
I hope you enjoyed your stitching evening too.
Thank you  Cheryll.
I am off to an art workshop on "back to basics with graphite pencils" 
Enjoy your day.
Namaste and Blessings

  5. Looking lovely Michelle - Have you thought of a very narrow plain border, almost like piping? I found it very useful on my medallion quilt to separate the busier areas. xx

  9. You flimsy looks beautiful and yes I do think it needs a solid border before more pieced blocks..
    Oh you would have had a great time at your workshop..

  10. Roma is coming along beautifully. I think it may need a solid border too, or perhaps something pieced with scraps from the same colour/tone. I'm sure whatever you choose will work perfectly.
