Day 21--Quilt Blocks for a Secret Family Member

Yesterday, my Mom, sister-in-law, and I worked on our contribution of quilt blocks for the secret quilt for the secret family member. We had fun girl-time and it was nice to catch up. We talked books, children, crafts and more. I worked on this same project with my sisters back in March during my visit to Montana. Boy, was that a fun time, and how I miss my sisters! The blocks are coming along, and better come quicker, as they are supposed to be put in the mail by Saturday. Four more to go! Quilting is becoming an enjoyable hobby of mine. Although there is an immense amount of skill that must be learned to move from novice quilter to skilled quilter, the learning process is an enjoyable one--except when it involves numerous moments spent re-picking what I just re-picked and sewed again. Nevertheless, the time spent quilting is never regretted. I look forward to beginning Brooklynn's quilts!


Here are a few shots taken in MT. on my trip to visit Tammy back in March.

This is amazing. Plus, that pic of you is so cute.

My husband's gma just passed last year, but I have all the squares for a quilt she made me...just have to put it together. It has LOADS of meaning and importance for me.

That sounds so fun quilting with all you ladies. Wish I was there and I can't wait to see your blocks. Way to try to reach that goal!

P.S. I opened up my new blog! Yay! You'll have to check it out and tell me what you think!

Love the quilt and the fabrics. Way cute. And way to go on the garden. I LOVE veggies from the garden in the middle of summer. Chris planted ours this year because I told him I wasn't doing it 8 1/2 months pregnant, so we'll see what we get! :)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
