This weekend we all got together for a quilting. It's a fun tradition. We piece and hand sew a quilt for each of our school teachers. We done this for two years now and made two quilts. It's a tradition that I personally love. Quilting is a hobby of mine.
After the quilt is pieced together we set it up on a huge frame in the school room to finish it. Everyone helps, even the young school girls and boys. There's always a variety of stitches, which makes the quite a precious gift.
Even my brother helps out. He's actually pretty good at it.
He's an even better conversationalist so, a couple hours on a bench goes by quickly.
I Love my Brother to Bits!
Quiltings are just a fun time to get together and talk about everything. The conversation is interspersed with "Can I have the thread" and "Where are the scissors?" The quilt is so large and the thread and needles and scissors always end up in the middle so we keep a yardstick on the quilt to use as a bat. We enjoy using it to hit things to one another.
Well, two quilts down and who knows how many more we'll make. Lots I Hope!
