Oh boy! What a great time we had! In addition to spending the whole day on Friday, from 9 a.m. until 10:30 (we wilted before midnight), I got to spend time with my granddaughter, my son, my brother, my sis-in-law, and my niece and nephew and their spouses.
The picture posted is one of Cori and Zane with their wedding signature quilt. I finally got it to them a year after their wedding. Aren't they beautiful?
Anyway, back to the "Quilt 'til you Wilt" session..Deborah and I started in at 9 a.m. and worked on projects until noon. We then met my family for lunch at a local restaurant. We got back to the quilt shop around 2 p.m. and resumed our marathon sewing session. I was able to finish quilting a DWR tablerunner for Deborah (I owed her), finished binding my reversible quilt (picture to come later as soon as my brother sends me a copy), and I started a pink ribbon quilt top. I worked and worked on that baby until I finally had to quit. I had begun to put rows together and was doing great without a design wall until about the 4th row. I then realized I'd messed up the design. It's a simple one - solid squares alternating with four patch squares. I'll re-work it later.
On Sunday, my brother, Henry, set me up with my sewing machine in his computer room. I was able to get some quilting done on the top I completed at the Amarillo retreat. While my machine was set up, my granddaughter decided she wanted me to make her a quilt. LOL Okay, I said. We'll sew some blocks together. I sat her on my lap, she worked the foot petal, and we sewed blocks together and made her a pillow. She was thrilled! She wanted a little sewing machine they have at Target, but when we realized it's made for 8 year old and older, we (she and I) decided it would be best to wait until she was a little older. I want to be able to spend time with her when we do get her a beginner machine.
Time to get ready for work.
