Fun, busy weekend

I picked my sister up from the train station on Friday night and it seemed we were going, going, going until she went home on Sunday morning. We went to a quilt shop first thing in the morning and got some yummy Lakehouse fabrics as well as a few cute FQ's. Went to visit my SIL who broke her arm from falling off her horse. Thank goodness she is okay and all that happened was a broken arm! Dropped my husband off at the Indian casino and found another quilt shop to go to. Got home and made a make-up bag together with some new fabric we bought (we would have used some in my stash but I hardly have any!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). LOL We finally had to get off our feet so we went and sat on the couch and did a little stitching. I worked on this.........and I'm happy to say I'm almost done. Only one little cherry and raspberry to finish.

And Isabel worked on this. This is her quilt from the Sharyn Craig class we took a couple of years ago. Mine is made from civil war reproductions and hers is out of 30's. This is an older picture. Her binding is all sewed down but she is in the process of adding buttons to the intersections. It is super cute in person.

She quilted it with a stitch in the ditch and a pretty braid pattern on the border.

And that was all on Saturday!!!!!!!!! Needless to say, I took it easy on Sunday just doing laundry and worked on my baby nine patch/snowball quilt that I shared here. I used my scallop gadget and the information I learned in the Darlene Zimmerman class and got a pretty scallop border on my little quilt. I pinned the binding down and have to stitch it but I want to get my BOM done first. Hopefully, I'll be able to share a picture with you later this week.
