This past weekend my Mother, sisters and sister-in-law
gathered for a mini sewing retreat. The purpose of our get-together was each one of the girls were to make their rendition of a pattern for my 5th book.
We all gathered in Mothers home where we grew up as children.
Our sister Emily who lives in Texas was the only one of us 8 Children who did not get to make it to our quilting weekend. She texted a picture of her working on her quilt.
Our one and only brother slipped in and
visited us along with his granddaughter.
Mother worked on piecing a doll quilt. I think that is pretty good for a 91 year young lady.
My son Christian dropped in for Sunday lunch.
My sister Polly and I.
Cheryl's finished quilt top.
Julia and Coleen working diligently.
Julia's quilt "Twirling Birds". She will be entering this quilt in some quilt contests.
Mother made these blocks at our family sewing retreat in Feburary. This quilt is one of the inspirations that made my mind start churning for this new quilt book. Can you figure out the them of the book?
