Last weekend we FINALLY began working on KayLi's 100 Good Wishes Quilt. My friends T.J. & Donna Sue came to my rescue and they are amazing!!! I have no clue what I'm doing in the picture above but they guided me through. I actually learned enough to feel useful. And they taught me really cool phrases like "quarter inch seem allowance" and "fat quarter."
T.J. was so patient with the little details! I still can't figure out how she cut all the little green corner squares. I would have had a full blown melt down!
I had no idea there was so much ironing involved in quilting. It's making me reevaluate whether or not this will be a hobby I pursue in the future. At one point I was actually teasing that the next adoption would have to be from a country without 100 Good Wishes Quilts :0)
My mom and friend Priscilla were awesome, too. Since we meet at our church to quilt, they came over and took advantage of the kitchen and cooked dinner for our families. Believe it or not this really is the best of three pictures my husband took of them cooking. Sorry mom...the lasagna was wonderful!!!!
