Friday Night Sew-In Results for March

Heidi and Bobbi again hosted a Friday Night Sew-In. It is every third Friday of the month, and it happens to coincide perfectly with Scout campouts around here, so I'm available to participate. I have a tendency to start and not finish, so I have numerous UFOs (see the sidebar for details on that). I worked on a number of items, just chain sewing. Here's part of what got done last night.
Yep, that's half a quilt top. My quilt group wanted to make a zigzag quilt for this round, so I am making a prototype. I need to take it to church tomorrow for advertising, so I kept working on it today and finished it up.
I don't have enough boyish quilts in my personal stack of TV-or-movie-watching snugglers, so I decided on this color scheme. It's mostly Heather Ross' Mendocino line. I left the mermaids out of this one.
This is just leftovers from my stacked coins quilt out of Spring Magic. I had all the blocks made, sewn into strips, and then they just sat there. So I sewed the strips together last night. It still needs some borders -- not big enough for a baby quilt.
One of my Common Threads blocks. I worked on another one for Nadia, but it's not done, and I'm dissatisfied with how it's going. I may have to make it into two blocks. I also worked on some of my quilt-along blocks -- just a whole bunch of chain sewing. Not done. Thanks to Heidi and Bobbi for the motivation to get this stuff done!
