It's a process

My husband is out of town this week for a business conference and man, is it putting a damper on my goal to have my Penny Patch Quilt finished for my mom's stay in the hospital next weekend.  Most days I can get about 30 minutes of uninterrupted time after dinner is done and the baby is asleep.  But this week that 30 minutes is spent more like this -



Yes, it seems that my son thinks the best way to baste a quilt is with a John Deere... perhaps he is right! 

Thankfully, hubby comes home tomorrow and I should be able to make more progress.

  3. Your Penny Patch is a beauty. And I do hope you can get a chance to finish it in time for your mom. But those little farmer types know that spring is the time for field work and you got to make hay while the sun shines! Love the purple and teal together!

    1. Thank you Lorna! I think if I just do some simple crosshatch quilting, it should be doable. I will tell you though, the spring certainly has brought a renewed energy to my family! Thank you so much for stopping by.

    1. I love that my kids "help" me with my quilts. My son loves to sit with me when I am sewing on my machine. And my daughter loves to go to my quilt guild meetings to see all the beautiful blankets during show and tell. I hope this will encourage them to find their own creative outlets!
