Family Quilting Marathon

We had a family quilting marathon this past weekend and it was so much fun! We got several queen sized tops all put together. Two quilts and five runners quited, 120 blocks appliqued, and several cut out for more projects! We had so much fun and I cannot wait to do it again. Even though I am ready to go to bed! Whitnee made this quilt for her friends baby boy. She made it in one day! She even designed the pattern herself! It turned out so cute! Good Job Whit! Taking a little break from the quilting
(notice that Grandma still has fabric in her hand, hehe)
Jeff was my helper, he would lay the fabrics together and then hand them to me to sew. The mountain of scraps that turned into our "Recycled Quilts".Ashlee learned how to use the long-arm machine. She did a really good job too! The five completed table runners, all five were made from one jelly roll. So much fun! I had fun and am more inspired to finish my projects! Thanks for the fun times girls!


  1. ok, so that quilt that whitney made for kelsie was amazing! That picture doesn't do it justice. I would love to pay for one when i find out what i am having! You guys do amazing work!

  2. Natalia, we loved the sewing retreat. We got really motivated while we were with you and now we have finished two more "Fall" quilts, sashed one of the dot quilts, bound the quilts and runners, and now we are working on Ainslee's baby stuff. Good thing Layne was gone so we could continue our crafting here in Preston. Thanks for all you did for us. We really did have a fabulous time. You are a great teacher and inspirator(?). Keep it up!
