Wonderful, wonderful Sunday - too bad it's been pouring rain here.

I spent a lazy morning playing on quilting this tablerunner.

I got the inspiration to make it from Jacquie - and added my own gold stars in the blue (they're kind of hard to see). I took Glad Press N Seal, drew the stars and free motion quilted them. Now I've just got to piece together a scrappy binding with some of the leftovers from various projects.

Then Jessie wanted to learn how to sew, so I let her practice on some scraps, and then she made this chicken block all on her own (I thought paper piecing would be easy on her - follow the lines):

I wonder if she will continue to quilt - or if she will not have the patience for it - she's not one to sit still for very long:)

Then of course, Tyler had to try out the sewing machine:):

Happy Mother's Day everyone!!!

It's neat that your kids are taking an interest in quilting. I can't wait until mine are old enough to start.

So fun to see the kids at the sewing machine! The flag looks great! I might be making more. The friend I gave it to has been taking orders from her military mom's group. I could be up to my ears in flags!

I'm with you Jessie! I want to learn how to sew too! That is truly special that you have the gift of sewing (along with many others:) to pass on.

Happy belated Mother's Day friend.
