Mother and Daughter Quilting Day

Last week my daughter, Amber, and I made trip up to Missouri Star Quilt CO. in Hamilton, MO.  This was her first trip there and she is now addicted to quilting.  We spent the day working our our quilts Sunday afternoon and she finished her quilt top all except for the borders.  We were doing this in the middle of our dining room since I don't have a sewing room.

This is the Jelly Roll Race 2 and you can find the link for the directions at the bottom of this post.

I spent the day binding my quilt with a black and white stripe that looks like checks after I sewed it on.

My next sewing project will be to replace this old worn out apron that was Grandma Edna's.  The last time I washed it, it had a big hole in the center.

I love this style of apron and the old retro fabric.

This is the fabric I'll be using:

I will also be trying to do a time lapse video of me working on a painting this week.  Wish me luck!


  1. How fun spending time quilting with your daughter!

  2. You two will have such a great time quilting!! Your quilt turned out great and love your apron fabric. My grandmother always wore apron's in the kitchen too!

  3. What a wonderful craft! I have always admired those who can quilt. So nice your daughter is picking this up. Have a delightful day!

  4. Your quilts turned out lovely. I love the black and white binding you added to yours. What a sweet little apron. Have fun making the new one. Happy Spring Catherine! xo

  5. Well, gals, you did a great job getting those projects done! Most of us leave them too soon and they sit undone for a long time. I really like the idea of using the stripe fabric that looks like a check. It's so you! And that apron style is delightful. I do wish you all the best with the time lapse photography! (I did not see this post before my own, but great minds think alike. Your posts are not updating for some reason. I think my fairy blog mother has a fix fir that, too!)

  6. Such a fun activity to share! Been wanting to go to that quilt shop!

  7. How jealous am I, a daughter who wants to quilt! Love your apron, and good luck on your video.


Thanks for taking the time to share your sweet comments!
