Friday Night Sew-In

I fell asleep after Little Bit went to bio dad's so I'm afraid I'm not getting much done this Sew-In.
I got the blocks done for this month's Schnibbles, which was a free choice. I went with Hot Cross which I have loved in every colour way I've seen.

I did this one in Aster Manor and I absolutely have fallen in love. I know I tend to make these bigger but I wasn't planing on it this time. I can't decide now what to do. I really love this pattern and the fabrics just make it so scrumptious! But I'd never get more fabrics in time for this to be done by the end of the month.

I also got 3/4 of the binding sewn down on a UFO that's been sitting around for about 2 years. It's not the best example of workmanship on my part but I adore the fabrics, Allspice Tapestry from Fig Tree. It's going to be a picnic/park quilt so will live in the minivan for at least the summer.
I got it stitched down while babysitting for my brother's girlfriend when she had to take her mom to the hospital. Which is fine, and so was she, but it meant I missed a package which has me bummed because I can't get it until Tuesday. But I'm definatly off to check out what everyone else is up to tonight and to check out the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

Hi Cara...I'm like you...I love that Hot Cross and the fabric. Is there a secret to sewing it? I'm not sure how you put it together? I'd be interested in knowing.

I love your Hot Cross top! Aster Manor is the perfect fabric for this one! That UFO looks interesting too. Are you really going to put it on the ground and picnic on it?
