I spent most of last week in Wyoming on a Youth Trek for our Church. 350 Youth and their leaders traveled up to the Mormon Handcart Historic Site to have a small taste of the handcart pioneer experience. And of course, we needed to look the part. So a little Patchwork Skirt sewing was in need. (and sadly, I forgot to take any pictures of this skirt while I was in Wyoming, so these are just in the backyard, le sigh)
Now, we all know I am not the best 3-D seamstress, so I was grateful when Barbara offered to make my skirts. (especially as I was trying to crank out a last minute deadline.) I had these fabulous Cotton and Steel Basics charm packs all picked out and I think they just made the cutest skirt!!! Aren't they just so fun!!!! I just loved how bright and happy they are :)
I needed a second skirt, so Barbara found this super adorable cheater print that looked uber authentic. So cute, I just loved it!!!! We didn't remember to take a whole lot of pictures while on the trek, (to busy walking) but I loved this one with my sweetheart and my oldest. Quite the crew :)
And just in case you were wondering . . . this is what half out our group looked like all decked out in pioneer fashion. What an awesome experience, I am so grateful I got the chance to go to this historic site and experience it with my sweetheart and my oldest son. I think we will have to go back as a family some time. Think of how cute those little girl patchwork skirts will be!!!!!
I hope you are having a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
