FNSI Report

I spent a lot of time cutting fabric last night for FNSI. It's not my favorite job to do, but I needed to get my civil war quilt sorted out. I got all the remaining blocks cut out and will post them as they get sewn together. That was a big job finished!
Then I had a grand time playing with my purple scraps and made some scrappy 6.5" crumb blocks. It was very fun, and rewarding to create something useful out of piles of unorganized scraps. Hop over to SoScrappy to see other purple scrap projects.

I agree the doggie one in the middle is super cute! Sounds like a great reward to play with purple after you got all your prep work done.

Always an admirer of crumb blocks!

Great blocks for FNSI. Do you embroidery over the seams like crazy patchwork or just leave them like they are? Love purples and mauve's.

I'm a crumb lover too - yours are looking great - love that centre crumb. It sounds like you had a successful FNSI - cutting can be a labourious job, but oh so necessary!
