A Great Weekend Comes To An End!

My friend Lisa, and her family came down to visit from PA! It was the first time that we had met in person. We talk daily on the phone or over the computer so I was excited for her visit! The funny thing is, my oldest son, Andrew said "Mom, you really are not that interesting so I don't know why someone would want to drive down from PA to meet you" Anyway, we had a wonderful time and so did the rest of the family. Our hubbys even have a lot in common!

We went through all of my quilts that I had stacked up, all of my quilt tops, and played with my fabric. Oh we also looked through some books, sewed a little and just had a great time!

They left this morning and we slept in! :) After I got up I worked on quilting some quilts! The first one is Vintage Planes. I made this one for Hunter, he just loves old planes and military stuff. Nothing fancy, I just added borders on the plane fabric. I really didn't want to cut the plane fabric up. I just did a simple stipple and it turned out nicely. I still need to do the binding so I will work on that through the week! He loves it!
I also quilted this crib quilt! It is a simple "Bow Tie" pattern. I quilted it with a "Pinetree" pantograph. I also need to do the binding on this one!
So 2 more down and 71 more to go!!!! :)

How exciting to actually meet Lisa and her family...did you take pictures?

Starting quilting on the new machine...learning something new to add to your list of "things you can do"!.

Have a wonderful week.

I'm glad you had a great week. Your quilts look great. Now don't overdo it. I always need rest after spending a week like you did!

Sounds like a wonderful time, and I'm sure it was too short. I'm guessing the two of you have already started plans for your next visit.

How great that you had friends that both you and hubby had something in common with. That Lisa has great give aways! LOL

I have some of that same airplane fabric.......not quite sure what I'll use it for but it is nice stuff. Lucky Hunter that you got your quilting machine just in time for his quilt.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I take it as a REAL compliment from someone who has some really pretty quilts of her own.
