Like Mother, Like Daughter.....

This was a real quilty weekend for DD and me. Saturday was a quilt-in at the church for our small quilt group. DD had started a modified Trip Around the World at the previous quilt in and finished the top in just a hour or so. She had a lot of fun using the iron like a big girl.

Here's her finished top. She's so proud! I'll help her baste it and quilt it. She expects to give it as a gift to her cousin, but we'll see...

The rest of us in the church group started on our own trip .... our Trip Around the World raffle quilt. Here's the first panel after sewing all the strips together.

And here's how far we got. DD and I dragged our butts out of there around 9pm. Boy, were we ever tired. We want to get the quilt done by early summer so that we can start selling raffle tickets at the Farmer's Markets on Saturday mornings. Then the raffle will be at the end of September at our annual Chicken Roast (held Homecoming Friday).

DD is out sledding right now; I've got about another 30 minutes of time to myself, so I guess I'd better get off the computer and over to the sewing machine.
Can you believe that tomorrow is March 1st? Spring, come on!
Have a great week!
