Calling it a night on FNSI

Here's what I got done:

10 of my stacked coins blocks for my Gold Coins quilt! The other 10 sets are trimmed and ready to piece. The 5 to the left are seamed together, but I thought I better wait before making any more columns to make sure the fabrics are somewhat evenly/randomly distributed across the top.

I also made chicken salad to use to for a sandwich tray tomorrow. I'll make the sandwiches in the morning. We have our ladies meeting to reveal our 2010 secret sisters and get our 2011 secret sisters. Throughout the year we pray for each other, and if able, give little gifts (at the least, notes) every now and then to let the lady know we're praying for her. Remember this quilt that my aunt quilted for me? Well, it's going to my secret sister :-). I had to attach a label, so I sewed that on tonight too.

Have a great weekend everyone! I'll try to be back on Saturday night after I've been able to log more time sewing. My goal for the weekend is to get Gold Coins to the flimsy stage and finish M's comfort quilt. Gold coins just needs 10 blocks assembled (the yellow & white rectangles are sewn, so just 4 seams/block) and then 15 blocks assembled into 3 columns of 5 and then the 4 columns seamed together. There's no border for this baby, so it will be ready for quilting then!

For M, I need to hand sew together the backing for quarters 3 & 4 and then seam both halves together (I quilted it in 4 parts to attempt a QAYG method.) Then it just needs binding and a label!

You are well on your way to finishing it I think. Good luck!
