Sister's Weekend just ended on Sunday. I am sad to be home but really missed getting the normal amount of sleep I normally get. Charlotte doesn't like to sleep as long as normal on vacation. This year we decided each of us would make a quilt square and then we could make our own lap quilts.
Here is my finished quilt with the two kids I left behind. It was so wonderful not having all three kids with me.
This is the top three quilt square. From left to right the squares were made by Jeni, Lonita, and me.
Here is the center three squares. The one on the left is Suzanne's square and the one on the right is Allison's square. The square in the middle is one I made since we only had a total of eight squares. I cut out an S and W. Then I sewed the letters on and in orange thread I used my machine to write Sisters over the S and Weekend over the W. The little red square is the Olivia pig laying on the floor and it says "Worn Out." We all thought that was perfect since at the end of sister's weekend we are utterly exhausted.
These are the three bottom squares and from left to right they were made by, my Mom, Donna, and Krissie.
I am always fearful of creating quilts because I'm just not sure if the fabrics I use ever go with each other. For example I think I like my quilt but I'm just not sure it all works together. I really wanted to use the purple fabric because I bought it a long time ago and I've lately been trying to use some of the fabrics I love but don't want to use. This purple fabric was one of them.
So what do you think?
