Yesterday was fun

There was a lot of sewing going on in Earling yesterday. And everyone worked on something different.

Deb has not sewn much, but she did a great job on these string-pieced blocks. She got 7 finished, and seemed really revved up to make more. She wanted something that would look old fashioned.

Mom is making a quilt using 20 different fat quarters from the Turning Twenty pattern. Very simple, yet pretty and a great way to use many pretty prints in the same quilt.

Sharon and Kelly were making jar blocks so that they can make some Christmas gifts. They cut out some from M & M fabrics and plan on making some from critter fabrics too. They will be so cute. Here is Sharon cutting. I didn't get a pic of her 27 finished blocks, but will soon. That is Dad in the background, Kelly didn't get in the picture. We'll catch him next time!

I worked on a new star for a Christmas table cover/runner type quilt. I didn't get too far, but will work on it some more later.

We had a really good time talking and sewing. You can see that Dad helped and supervised!
