Quilting Weekend


I picked out the pattern
over a year ago.
I think that Mom has fretted over it since then.
 
A year of finding the fabrics,
all batiks,
coming from
quite a few states
and
trips.
 
Finally this weekend,
we started.
Figuring,
sorting,
cutting,
figuring,
re cutting,
sorting,
figuring
and
finally
some sewing.
 
It all took me back to high school
geometry class
and
poor
Mr. Simerlink.
 
I am really not sure he ever liked me,
but I sure would have made him proud this weekend.
 
I used every bit of geometry that I remember.
(which is not much considering it was 40 years ago!)

This is what my dining room looked like for much of the weekend.

And it even spilled out onto the kitchen floor at one point!
 

Mom brought in Kamden's quilt that she had finished.
This one looks a lot easier!

Some time out for
Gracelyn Cheering,
she is the little blonde in the middle.
And
Tyler's
Basketball game on Saturday.
 
No pics of that.
 
A fun, too short visit with Garren on Sunday after church.
 
Friends for a great supper last night,
and that was my weekend!
 
It went by way too fast.
