This month the Friday Night Sew In is being hosted by Sugar Lane Quilts  and I am super excited to see this Sew-Along come back!!! My goal this month was to get my quilt top finished and I DID!!!  I started out with the quilt top looking like this...

 
4 strips already sewn together, 16 more to go. I started early yesterday as I wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to get this done and not be stressed about it. If you've read my FNSI posts before you'll know that I'm not super friendly with a sewing machine. Short periods at a time keeps me happy:)
However in the middle of the day I realized that I need to go into town. We were out of bottled water (our water is icky and our purifier needs a new filter, so bottled water for right now), and we were out of cat food. I trip into town is never a quick thing, so 3 hours later we were finally home.

 
 This meant that I was up much later than I would have been to get this done. BUT, I did get it done!!! I am super happy with how it looks and I can't wait to have it all the way quilted and finished so I can have it on my bed!!!

 
Here is a close up of the fabrics I used in this quilt. I'm planning on using the blue flower as my backing and binding as it is my favorite print of them all:)
 
Next month my goal will be to have the backing pinned on and maybe get the quilting done. I'm planning to machine quilt a simple diagonal line through all the blocks. Nothing fancy, but maybe if I keep it simple this quilt will actually get done!!!
