Friday Night's Sew in

Friday Nights Sew In hosted by Heidi ....
Didnt get a great deal done,  but managed to get this practice piece done  for Friday Nights Sew In ..so I could do the flowers on the runner. ( now done) I now will sew these peices together and do some practise FMQ to see how the double wadding will work out.

Sewed up the appliqued flowers and ...MADE SOME STARCH!! - fist time.  I starched both the backing fabric and the top and have double layered the cotton wadding and it is on the table ready to baste.  I am not going to pin - I will hand sew the basting again...much as it gets hooked on the machine - It really is held together better.  At least I will give it another go......Lots of lovely spaces to FMQ - I think this will keep me going for a bit. Then I need to get some UFO's completed!

Not sure if I can get any done today..its now Saturday here, and I am out for a staff dinner tonight :) Still having a problem with blogger and putting the photos in a differednt spaces.
 'Scuse the mess in the background...at least the table got cleared LOL.
Have a great weekend.

It will be interesting to see how you feel about using 2 layers of batting. It certainly will give the piece texture.

Can't wait to see the wonderful designs you will be FMQ.
You sewing space is amazing!♥

I may have missed out-why you are using two layers of cotton batt? Sometimes I use 2 layers, one for puff like wool and one for stability-current favorite is Orient. I haven't tried two layers of cotton before and I'm intrigued. I love your project-all that room for your beautiful fmq! I am totally jealous of that huge table to layer on...

I can just see it quilted with what you'd drawn up and I think it's going to look wonderful. The two layers will make it sit nice on the table.
