In the Craft Room: Lucy's Quilt

Well have you missed me??
I've been busy.
I decided to up and leave Sunday after church and drive to my momma's house.
Me and the kiddos.
It was a rash sudden decision.
I even surprised mom and dad. :)
And it was great.
(Not the best sleeping arrangements with all of us in one room. One kid snoring and the other talking to himself.....)
I quilted my little heart out.

How could I not being in a room like this?

She has it set up like a shop. With her fabric on bolts on shelves. And cute baskets holding fat quarters. It really is a great place to work.
So my momma worked on her school work (she's doing her master's), my kids played with cousins and played with grandma's toys. And I quilted. :)
I finished Lucy's big girl quilt. I'm quite happy how it turned out.
I also did a baby quilt top (with some real 30's fabrics someone gave me) and both sides of a reversible quilt for my living room. I have that one pinned now and ready to quilt it.

Here is Lucy's quilt. (Which she loves... and that makes me like it extra!)
(It was kinda hard to take a picture without anyone to hold it up for me....)This is a close up of the stitching in the middle of all the flowers.

So you can see the backing and binding.

My momma feels about quilting like I do about scrapbooking.
Scrapbooking is my thing.
Quilting is my momma's thing.
I like to quilt too.
And my momma likes to scrapbook too.
I love that we can both enjoy what the other person enjoys too.
And when I get quilting it gets my creative juices going so I scrapped a pile of pages when I came home too. So besides scrapbooking.

Since we've been home, I have finished up Sarah and Dale's photos.....


And working on Sherri and John's wedding photos...



What have you been up to??
