Sister's Weekend

This is where I spent my weekend. That is Mt Dessert Island and Cadillac Mountain. My sisters and I decided a couple years back that we needed to get together every year to celebrate our Birthdays (which land in Aug,Sept and Oct). So the three of us used to get together for just a day and explore a new place. The last two years we have been coming up to Lamoine to craft for a couple days. I brought this quilt which only needed a binding. All the squares came from a Block Lotto win. I put sashing around each square and mitered the corners.

Next I worked on bindings on two other quilts but didn't finish them or take pictures because I really wanted to move on to the next thing. Here is the border I put on to this quilt top. I think now this is complete.

What I really wanted to get to all weekend was the Crumb along blocks from Jo's Country Junction. I got the Flying Geese and the Star Blocks done.

This is what my sewing machine looked like. Lots of scraps to choose from.

I am definitely going to do the rest of the crumb along because I really need to use up some scraps. The time together ended to quickly but it was so much fun. I am planning for next year already.

My sisters and I do the same thing (there are 5 of us)! We just finished our 3rd annual 'Sisters Weekend'. It is so much fun to just get together and work on whatever we want to. We listen to music, watch movies and giggle until 3:00 AM - it's a blast!
