I brought up 3 sewing machines (one mine and 2 my MIL's) a whole bunch of snuggle flannel and we got busy. There was cutting, sewing, pressing, and . . .
Lots and lots of laughing!! Seriously, I nearly peed my pants a few times with all of the giggling we were doing.
But among all of the giggling, there was progress. Which makes me so incredibly happy because this little event had a purpose. We decided we wanted to make quilts for Primary Children's Hospital as a way to say Thank You for everything they did for little David. (who is now home with his family and doing well, Yippee!! :)
And we certainly got on Stitch On and did just that.
By 11:30 pm (ya, we are getting old and all night now means Midnight :) we had 4 girl tops sewn. So cute and adorable and soft and cuddly!!
And 4 boy tops. What boy doesn't love Monkey's and Dinosaurs :) Now I just need to quilt and bind. Hopefully that can get done in the near future.
So do you have a great cause in your area to quilt for?? Cause now is the time to get your stitch on and quilt for kids!! Katie at Swim Bike Quilt is hosting her annual 100 Quilts for Kids event. You can find all about it and link up your quilts for kids here, and you can also check out all the great prizes you can win here, and here. (Including some Happy Quilting Patterns :) Of course we don't need prizes to want to quilt for kids, but a little added incentive is always nice :) You have until Sept 30th so there is still plenty of time to participate. So gather a few friends or family and have your own all night sew :)
I mean, what could be better than a night of helping kids bundled with general silliness like this :) (It cracks me up that the cord from the machine looks like it is coming out of my sister's ear, to funny!!)
That's it for me, Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
