My mom and dad came up for a whole week of sewing last month. It was the first time since they moved that mom and I have been able to really work on things together. It was so great. We chatted, played with the kids, and sewed, sewed, sewed. It really was awesome now much we got done.
My mom asked the girls to each design something to sew up. Ali used some graph paper to design a quilt top. About 20 minutes later she came in with a "Tetris" quilt top. Mom and her chose colors from both our stashes and they got that thing sewed up that afternoon. Mom quilted it and I added the words "Tetris" in different colors around the border. The backing was some sock monkey flannel that I've had. It turned out really cute. (tetris quilt is on the right)
Mom made up a sea life & bugs jar quilt. She had some super cute fabrics stashed away for this one. Black background, and red and yellow sashing made this top sooo cute. She got this thing cut, back pieced, quilted, and bound in the week she was here.
Rachel designed a pillow top. She picked out her favorite prints from our scrap boxes and mom sewed it up for her. Mom quilted it and I put the pillow backing together to finish it up. She loves it and has taken it to all her slumber parties so far this summer.
Above is a pile of most of our finished goodness. From bottom to top: Tetris Quilt finished, Jar Quilt finished, Robot Factory top, 2 Vintage Sheet tops, Terrain top, and Ray's pillow.
Oh... and you may ask what Curtis and my dad were doing this whole week. Well... Curtis had the week off so he and dad went shopping to some stores that Dad doesn't have down by him. The worked on the cars, and read books, etc. General guy stuff.
