Nov Friday Night w/Friends

I got an early start on my Friday Night With Friends as I spent most of the day sewing. In fact, I've spent quite a lot of hours this week working on my Morris Garden quilt.

By today, I had all the pieces assembled and I could start putting together the quilt. I tried doing one mitered seam then decided it was going to be too difficult to get all the points to line up perfectly so I made the decision to tear apart all those kaleidoscope squares I had already sewn together so I could sew corners onto the octagons. It was an easier decision once I realized I could fit 2/3rds of the quilt up on the design wall.
The ripping added a bit of time, but I think my final assembly is a little smoother.
As of bedtime tonight, I have three rows finished—half of the central blocks—and have finished ripping apart all the kaleidoscope squares. I'm quite happy with how it is turning out. I should be able to just sew tomorrow unless I get distracted by something else. LOL

I'm also linking up with Finished or Not Friday.


  1. You’re making great progress on the Morris Garden quilt after doing the ripping… 👍

  2. OOOOOOO! That Morris Garden quilt is gorgeous. Glad you figured out an easier way to assemble the blocks. That'll speed things up and you'll probably be more successful (not to mention more comfortable!). Have a wonderful sewing weekend!

  3. What a beautiful and complicated looking quilt you are working on..very pretty hugs, Julierose

  4. Gorgeous quilt. Very eyecatching. Hugs, xx

  5. Wow - this looks amazing - challenging with the octagons but so worth it (glad you found an easier way to assemble them). I see by the end of Saturday you'd made even more progress...
