October FNSI sign ups and a September Winner

So sorry about the delay in drawing last month's winner!  

This year is certainly getting away from me as it is for most I guess, but especially seeing as I have my very first grandbaby due very VERY soon and the prep for that has been enormous!  My poor daughter in law has been soooo sick for almost the entire pregnancy and spent many a day in hospital on drips and in doctors surgeries so this little cherub might (understandably) be the only one they have.

For that reason, I've been making the most adorable baby quilt I could....it's called Duck Duck Goose, created by Meags & Me using the beautiful Blue Goose fabric range by Clothworks.  I am just so in love with this range.  And I guess by now you've realised, our bubba is a little boy!  *squeee*....I just can't wait!

Here is my version so far.....

Well, it's actually a little further along than this...all the hand-stitching is complete and the backing has been made and it's ready to sandwich and quilt!  It is a large one......56" x 62" and as you can see, it's laying across our queen sized bed and it goes all the way across!  fI think it will do our little man for quite a while!
Last month I also completed all the stitching elements for Block One of Gail Pan's "Wish You Well" BOM, which I didn't get around to showing you. 
This is now in the 'wait' pile until that baby quilt is done!  Only six weeks till he's born so that's first on the list!
What have you got planned for this Friday Night's Stitch In?  Hopefully I'll be on the Sweet 16 having a practice run.  Make sure you sign in or pop on by , either below or in our FNSI facebook group.  You're more than welcome to join our group if you're not already a member.  
 It's always fun to play with others....especially when there's a prize to be won!  (thanks to the gorgeous Kitty Rose!)  Don't forget to pop by and see what lovelies she has in her shop...there's a lovely new BOM designed by Dawn and it.is.the. BOM!

Now it's finally  catch-up time, from last month's Stitch In......who is our lucky September FNSI winner?  


CONGRATULATIONS Jeanette!!!  I'm sure our wonderful sponsor, Kitty Rose Cottage, has something beautiful to send you in the mail!  Thank you to all who joined in.....it makes our lockdowns so much more enjoyable when you know you can still join up with friends doing what you love best!

In the meantime, remember to join us by linking in below or joining in with our Facebook Group.  We'd love to see you there.

The baby quilt is very nice and I love that it is on the larger size. I think it will be more useful and the little guy will enjoy for a lot longer.
I've just recently returned to the sewing machine so I'm excited to join the group for FNSI...it's been a long while. Thank you for hosting.
