    yesterday with the help of Katie I cut up four quilts.
    The first one is my Jelly Roll quilt I want to start.
    The second is a flannel baby quilt to give as a gift to friends of ours.
    The third is a quilt kit "Crazy Eights" that Katie wants to make.
    The fourth is a pin wheel quilt for buddy to start to learn to sew and will be his first sewing project ever. Had to resize the baby quilt pattern and Buddys pattern to make them smaller.

    Then we cut out not one, not two, not three, but, FOUR of the table runners like the one Kate made me.

    She made a fourth of July one last night and we worked on Buddy's quilt last night and tonight. Katie started her quilt tonight, and I sewed the baby quilt top together including the borders today. Will post pictures tomorrow when not so tired. Machines running, irons steaming, kids stitching.... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: what could be more fun. Mommy sore and tired :? :? :? This Mom is headed to bed. i will post pictures and there progress as they go. It has been fun though.

    Guess maybe Buddy will need a machine too. LOL :lol: Never enough machines I say. :lol:

    Oh PS Dale is doing great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    wow, that is so great that your kids are enjoying all this. I would love to share 'quilt' stuff with mine, but they are either busy working, or busy with babies. they are just teens, you should be so proud of yourself, mom! :wink:

    What a wonderful legacy.
    My daughters sew and now my two oldest granddaughters.
    I am blessed they have creativity of their own.
    So far I am the only quilter.
