These will be Christmas presents for little Miss M (floral fabric) and her cousin Mstr J (blue spotty fabric). I still have to find a coordinating fabric for Mstr J's softie for the snout and ears. I had the perfect one but unfortunately didn't have enough of it in my scraps. I can't wait to get sewing and see how they turn out!

|The WAQA library has some fantastic books, of which this is one.|
It is a fantastic book with some very useful tips around cutting up scraps ready for turning into lovely quilts and quilted projects. Luckily for me I am still fairly new to the quilting game so have not collected huge amounts of scraps yet. Maybe I will be able to get reasonably organised before I get too many bits and pieces.
We also enjoyed the show and tell session of the night. My other good friend, Phil of The Guilty Quilter fame, showed off 2 of her quilts which both won a 3rd prize at the Royal Show recently. She is an amazing hand quilter and appliquer, and her machine quilting is beautiful as well. You will be able to see some of the quilts that were shown off on the WAQA blog very soon.
If you would like to check out what everyone else did for FNSI you can visit Wendy's blog, Sugarlane Designs, here. I'm off to have a quick look myself now.
