Many hands

I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day on Sunday or whenever you had a chance to celebrate.

I was lucky enough to have all my family together for the whole day.    I was asked what I wanted/needed done on Mother's Day.  

my answers:
  • not to make any meals
  • peace and quiet amongst siblings
  • not to do  any dishes
  • and help me pin a quilt together!

This is my oldest UFO.  You can read more about it here and here.  

Hubby, son and daughter #2 all helped to sandwich and pin this together (DD#1 was sick in bed).

We had lots of giggles and fun working on this together. 
 (Bonus it was done in half the time)

Have you ever recruited family members to help with quilting?

Happy stitching!



  1. This has to be the worse part of machine quilting....I've only pinned small quilts so far. I;m not anxious to do a large Love the quilt!!

  2. How fantastic that they helped you baste. You're a lucky woman. It's the least enjoyable part of quilting for me, too. At my house, there's only me and my two cats and while I wonder sometimes if they THINK they are helping ...

  3. I have never thought to ask my family to help me baste a quilt. My kids are still at the age where they would be more hindrance than help, but I'm sure my hubby could be recruited.


  4. Well done, I love helpers! This quilt reminds me of the old timies around at the turn of the century, did you plan that?

  5. Good for you! That's got to one of the best Mother's Day gifts!
