Taking a little break

With all the craziness in my schedule, last night was a welcome break. My daughter-in-law Breanna asked me several weeks ago if there was a time we could get together and spend some time sewing. It just happened to be the night of the BIG basketball game and the boys had plans, so it was the perfect night to sew.

When Breanna got engaged to our son Ryan, someone asked her if she knew how to sew. Evidently, this person thought it was a pre-requisite to joining our family. It's really not, but Breanna wanted to learn a little more about quilting. We had a lot of fun making this table topper, this was her first official quilt.

We didn't quite finish, it still needs the borders and to be quilted, but we are saving that for another fun quilting day. Great job Breanna, you are a natural. Cecily, care to join us next time?
Back to work,
PS There was a loud shout for joy from the boys at the end of the game!


  1. Great job for your daughter-in-law!

  2. Great job Breanna! It's really lovely that you're teaching her some new things Bonnie; no one in my life really sews so I've had to teach myself everything and it would have been nice at times to have a helping hand.

  3. That is wonderful!! Great to have a daughter in law that is willing to learn. Looking forward to seeing more from her.

  4. Looks like fun! Wish I could have been there to join in. I've figured our it's much more fun to work on projects with you mom! I get lonely working on them all by myself... not to mention they turn out much straighter when you help. Funny how that happens!

  5. WONDERFUL!! It is always fun to welcome a new quilter to the groups.

  6. She looks like one of your own! Such fun to sew together!!!!
