Thanksgiving day and my sisters quilt

This year I had my Mom and my sisters family come to my house for Thanksgiving dinner, there was 9 of us all together. We managed to sit all of us around the table too. That was nice. Anyway, after we ate, the guys headed in to watch football and my sister and I headed down to my quilt room. 🙂 She has been busy getting some of her rows sewn together from last years lock in mystery quilt, She brought it with her as she wanted to show me how it’s looking. We decided to hang them on my design wall.


She’s liking the way it’s looking and so am I!

That’s it for now. 🙂 hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!


Lock in mystery quilt 2013

What a great time we had at our annual mystery lock in. Everyone seemed to like this years pattern. We named it Hawaiin Dreams. Here’s mine done with a dark background.


This is Sharon’s, done with the light background.


Susan got a lot done on hers.


Show and tell was good. Lots of ladies brought in last years mystery, Summer Breeze. I took pictures as they walked around the room.







Hope you enjoyed the pictures.


Design wall Monday 2/18/13

I spent today getting the last of the borders put on my lock in mystery quilt. It’s
now done and ready to be quilted!! Yea!!! Sorry I can’t show more but it IS a “mystery” and this is the whole quilt!! LOL!! Too bad it’s hanging on a hanger….. 🙂


I’ll let you see the whole quilt after the lock in on March 9th. I hope the ladies attending this year are happy with the design.

Now I have to get back to working on my guilds opportunity quilt.

That’s it for now. To see more design walls check out.


Lock in mystery quilt

We had a great day yesterday at our annual mystery lock in. There were 58 ladies there sewing, chatting and eating!
Here is this years quilt. I named it “Summer Breeze”


Here’s Sharon’s quilt. She changed hers just a bit, by putting the dark around the center square.


We had lots of quilts shown that ladies made last year. Show and tell is always great!!

That’s it for now. Have a good day!!
