Sunday Sewing with Family

I cleaned up my sewing room so that at least three of us could have a work area, laid my camera out . .

and then didn't even think to use it. So I don't have a picture of us working or a picture of the complicated block.

We started working at about 1 p.m. There were three of us cutting pieces and my mom was cutting off the dog ears. While we were able to cut strips for the pieces, we were not able to make half square triangles or anything else. We cut out templates of the odd shaped pieces and then had to cut around each. We were able to get some pieces sewed together and got ONE block finished. Too funny for 3 to 5 people cutting, sewing, and pressing.

But that's okay because we had a blast. My sister and niece thanked me over and over for the day and my mom called me after she got home to let me know she really enjoyed the time spent together.  I think we need to do this at least once a month.

We will have to get together again to finish it so I'll try to take pictures then. I bet someone would be able to give my some tips on an easier way to do it.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. Gracious -- you all will have to meet a little more frequently than once a month if you're going to get all those blocks done in time for the wedding!! LOL! I'm glad y'all had a good time! :)
