We're Celebrating Back To School With A Blog Hop And Giveaway!
Thanks to Michelle Foster at Quilting Gallery for organizing this blog hop. I know everyone has been running around furiously getting all their children ready to return to school and now it's time for some quilting fun and relaxation.
Last night my bee girls came over and we hand quilted on my mother-in-law's quilt. We had a blast! I think we all needed some "girls giggling time". It's amazing how you can quilt yourself into a corner...Gina......hehe
Here was Gina just quilting along and suddenly glasses are off and she is like a pretzel trying to get some stitches into the quilt. We all rolled......and of course there had to be a picture. Ever fill like your arms are just not long enough to get that last needle full of stitches in?
Below is where we all suddenly ended up at one end of the quilt trying to get this row finished. We bumped elbows and heads. We would be sewing along and suddenly someone would hand you their needle and say "here do that piece". What a great group of ladies!
Mom was sewing a sleeve and label on her challenge quilt and being the quilt police for us....hehe. She is always able to find a "spot" that we might have missed some stitches. Here shows the four quilters all ending up on the left side. What a hoot!
Love having my bee girls come over and play. Thanks ladies for all the help quilting this quilt. We spent so much time oohing and awing over the beautiful embroidery that my mother-in-law added to every one of the sunbonnet sue and sam blocks. How talented she was with those skills.
Now to my giveaway........
I've put together a jellyroll of 20 batik fabrics from my stash. I have really grown to so love these beautiful and unique fabrics. The giveaway is open until September 4th at midnight Eastern Standard Time. I will draw a winner on September 5th at 5:00 a.m. and post the winner. Entering is easy........Just follow my blog and leave a comment telling me how many years you have been quilting.
