Finished Bluebird Wall Hanging, Teaching Em, & Mom's Quilt Top



Here's the finished wall quilt!
I'm so happy that it's done early so I don't have to rush around next month to finish it.




What do you do on a Saturday?
Mom and I helped teach my sister, Emily, to machine quilt using a walking foot.



Her machine started out real slow and unsure, but after a few rows Em and her  machine had all the confidence in the world to get the job done.

I also helped Mom measure the size of her Shop Hop Quilt that she made last year so she can get the backing ready.  Each Quilt Shop had a block pattern.




I'm looking forward to seeing this quilt when it's all finished!

Happy Quilting!

Beautiful thread painting, Kay Lynne! It's really a work of art.

How fun that other members of your family are quilters too!
