A Project Finished

Last spring I got together with my sisters and sisters-in-laws. It was so much fun. I love hanging out with my sisters. We just laugh and laugh. And eat and eat. And laugh some more. Last year we decided to do a Sister's Weekend Quilt. We were all supposed to bring eight quilt squares that we had made to swap with each other. all the squares turned out great, they were all different and beautiful. When I got home I had grand plans of finishing my quilt right away. But I didn't really know where to start. So even though I bought some material to finish it off with, I hadn't done anything beyond that. So this weekend when we came to Vegas I decided I would have my Mom help me finish. And she did. And I got the top finished!


I love it! I was worried I wouldn't like the colors I picked to go with it, but I think they turned out great.


And the theme of our weekend was "Worn Out" because we all needed to sleep a week to recover from our adventurous Sister's Weekend!

It looks awesome! (I lucked out and got mine beautifully finished right away - not knowing how to sew does come in handy sometimes, especially when people like you and Mom take pity on me!)

I love it! I would love to come up and see it in real life sometime! I just started quilting/sewing last year and have lots to learn from you!

I love how that turned out. I love the center and how you did it differently then me. It looks just so good. Maybe we can quilt ours together some weekend.

Kim- stop on by. I am just learning to quilt so I could probably learn a few things from you.

The middle 2 blocks and sashings all go together. The quilt top looks very professional. It just looks great. I love it.
