Sewing with Jacqui

I spent Friday morning at Jacqui's house. I worked on putting some more blocks together for my niece's PJ quilt and I put together a second row of my Carolina Christmas quilt. This one takes a while because of all of the seams to match up. There are lots of star points that I don't want to cut off too. Here I am with my first two rows done. I am loving the way this quilt is coming together. So far, I am uninspired as to what to call this quilt. If you have any ideas, leave a comment. If I use your idea, I will send you a surprise in the mail...

Jacqui worked on quilting her Friendship Braid quilt. She and I each made a Friendship Braid lap quilt for our local hospital chemo ward. My quilt is off at the machine quilters being quilted. I hope to have it back soon so I can get the binding onto it.We are supposed to bring our finished quilts to our next Elgin Piecemakers Quilt Guild meeting later this month. I will take pictures of everyone's quilts at that time and do a blog post about them.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian readers! I have lots to be thankful for--my family and my friends are at the top of the list.


  1. Wish Upon A Star! It's beautiful and looks like it could make dreams come true!

  2. How about "Point me the way to go home?"

    How about 'Orange you Crazy' or maybe spelled this way: 'Orant'you Crazy?'

    Wait til I start my 'Just Plain Nuts' or 'Nearly Insane' quilt! Maybe I should do it in blues and oranges and we can call them 'Orant'you Crazy I & II' LOL.
