Quilting day..

July 16, 2011|11:33 pm

As I was re reading my last blog and talking about the quilt I’d like to do someday,I realized I haven’t shared here about my daughters’ quilts. Bethany and Dané were attending the 4H quilt club meetings this year before we decided that 4H was something that just had to go for my sanity. They started making quilts with many different blocks. Dané declared today quilt day and spent the morning at her house working on blocks. Bethany went over for awhile but soon quit. Then they decided to work over here in the kitchen where the new air conditioner is keeping it an wonderfully cool. They are of course, all done for the night and off to bed but have their stuff all set up hoping to get in a few more hours tomorrow.

This is what the breakfast nook looks like right now.

This was earlier in the day as they were both hard at work.

Some of Dané’s blocks all laid out. I am sure she will post more pictures on her blog soon. Seeing the beautiful quilts these two are making is what inspired me to buy my own fabric earlier today.

Ran to Jo Anne’s Fabric tonight

|11:20 pm

and bought the fabric for my first ever quilt. It may be a while before I actually get to it as I am not even sure what pattern I am going to use. It is a wide range of fun patriotic fabrics that are just right up my alley..one even has moose on it! could  that be any more me? I’ll need to add in some solids later on but couldn’t pass the deal on this fabric up. They were 50% off and I had a 20% off my entire purchase coupon.

Oh and I also picked up some cool yarn on a REALLY great clearance. Enough to make a 00000000 for 000000 for Christmas! Info withheld for the obvious reason that some of my children read this blog on a regular basis!

Todays CM party was a bust with all of her guests cancelling but we had a great visit and fun afternoon anyway. I did get  started organizing photos to give to my mom in love for her birthday on Tuesday. I can safely say that as she rarely reads this blog.
