Friday finally - very long week!

Oh man a week of work after a week of sewing bliss, that was a REALLY long week.  The only sewing I got done was the binding on the square pants quilt.  Last pictures of this one.  I did have show that I do finish things all the way :)   The pattern for this quilt can be found here at Lilly's Qulits.




Here's a project I'm working on with Anna.  She's 12 and this is her first quilt.  She's making it for project linus.  She asked me if I would work on one with her.  It took all of a nano second for me to say "you bet!". I did the cutting and the ironing.  She did sewing and designing.  She picked out a jelly roll (cuz I still have a few :) and here's what she came up with.  We have all the blocks together, and started sewing the blocks into rows.  We sewed for 5 hours straight, well with one pizza break!!  What fun.  Anna has a really good 1/4 inch seam going on these blocks.  I think she's doing great :)

Linking up  with Sarah

  4. Again - you just blow me away with your quilting. You turned a a pretty plain block quilt into a masterpiece. How fun to have a youngster getting into quilting - 5 hrs. is super sewing! Love this pattern and it does work up quickly.
