My mother-in-law organized a quilting party for a bunch of us girls to get together and get creative (and of course eat some food!). It was a ton of fun, but we were all exhausted at the end of the night (well, beginning of the next morning, really). We sewed from 6pm-1:30am. That's 7 and a half hours of straight sewing. Whew!
Of course I took my Flip video camera and recorded a little bit throughout the night. Here's us at the very beginning of the evening after we had done the first part of our blocks. Mine are the white flowers with pink and yellow fabrics.
The soup tureen that I'm laughing at was a wedding gift we received from a very distant relative. We thought it was kind of ugly and weird, so we re-gifted it in a "Bad Santa" exchange with the family last year. Apparently, my husband's Aunt Karen liked it enough to hold onto it. (She's the one in the purple top).
And this is my fabulous sis-in-law, Mandy. We were so tired at this point.
Here's my husband's cousin, Nicole, holding the quilt my mom-in-law made out of the scraps from each of our quilts.
A planning session for Karen's quilt. We all started with the same blocks, and situated them any way we wanted to. It was neat to see the different patterns everyone came up with.
My quilt. It's actually a lot brighter in person, but my phone's camera didn't pick it up very well.
This is a little bit closer to the colors.
So that's what I did with my Friday evening.
What about you? Do you quilt or sew? Knit or crochet? I would love to hear from some of my crafty readers!
