How fun is it when Mother & Daughter teams make big plans to spend the New Year’s holiday together sewing away and sharing not only their fabric, but their love of quilting!
Yesterday’s Bow-Dacious class at Fabric Fanatics in Plano brought together THREE Mother/Daughter teams and the conversations and interaction were so much fun!
For some reason, these three pairs all found themselves at the same row of tables in class!
I love knowing who started quilting first, and finding out a little bit about each pair.
Aren’t they cute?
I learned to sew basic things from my mom, but quilting never really entered the picture for me until I was off and married. My mom has only picked up quilting in the last 7 years or so. I have not been able to attend any quilty events with her as yet, so I was a bit jealous as well as joyful over these Mom & Daughter duos making holiday memories together.
Nell & Loretta from Nebraska!
Pearl & Annette from Texas!
Quilting is the thread the binds!
Allison’s Lovely Minnesota hand crank!
We also know that there are many other projects that will pull and tug over us during the coming year, so a good solution to keep moving on this one, is to use the pieces as Leaders & Enders, making units and blocks between the lines of chain piecing other things. I can’t wait to come back next year and see some completed quilts!
Irene…such a cheesy happy smile!
Allison --One down, 40 bazillion to go!!

How I spent New Year’s Eve!
Tom Hanks/ Meg Ryan Movie-thon with Irene! I’m using Allison’s lovely 301 and working on my mini bear paw units! We made it through You’ve Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle before the ball dropped!
Whole lotta piecing going on!
So, what’s up for your 2015, Day TWO? I hope it’s a good one whatever you get up to!
As for me, we’ve got a Scrap Crystals workshop starting soon, and our classroom will be filled with 31 happy scrappy quilters!
