I was actually showing her how to lay a quilt out to get it ready to quilt.....
Like I even knew what I was doing!
We were down at the clubhouse at Loreley in Helen, Ga.
The guys had gone fishing so we were quilting.
This took a lot of safety pins!
Vicki says, "Are my knees suppose to hurt like this"?
I said, "I think so"! We are Lucy & Ethyl!
Lucy & Ethel
Vicki asked me was her knees suppose to hurt like that!!!
She said it already felt like a quilt!
Wonder when she will finish it?
Yes, we quilted on vacation! I worked on my quilt top that I am doing with Amanda Jean's Quilt along! I only have a little more work to get it done. I also did quilt block #1 on her new quilt along. I think I need to go on vacation again, so I can sew. Several people laughed when I told them I was taking my sewing machine on vacation with me but I enjoyed it so much. It makes me smile. I feel proud. I feel peace. I feel joy.
The other pictures are my best friend Vicki's quilt. It is all hand done. I asked her to bring it on our trip and I would help her get it basted so she could get to quilting on it. I learned to baste with safety pins in my quilt class that I took with My Mom! Vicki probably thought I really knew what I was doing. But a big quilt like that was a little harder than my wall hanging. We were pouring sweat. We had a very nice place to do it though. Our condos have a big clubhouse down on the river and it was great. We had a ball! You all would love Vicki! I am trying to talk her into doing a blog. She is so funny!
