Weekend quilting fun with family

I went to Earling yesterday to spend the day sewing and chatting with my family. We had so much fun. This is my sister, Sharon and my niece, who was helping us...she snipped, she drew lines on many many squares for us. This sister and my mom were making quilts from the book: Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam Lintott. Neither one had jelly rolls, they just cut their fabrics up into 2 1/2" strips.
Here is another niece helping out.

This is my sis-in-law, Amy, who didn't quilt with us, but was looking through quilting magazines. And of course Dad doesn't want to miss out on the chatting and food, though he commented that he knew he didn't have the patience for quilting! He does beautiful woodworking, though.
And then there's Deb, who hadn't ever really sewn until we got her going not so long ago. She started some string pieced blocks last time and was anxious to get back to them. I will post some more pix tomorrow.
