New Year's Eve Mystery Quilt 2010

On New Year's Eve Day Kathy came over and she, DJ and I worked on two of Ann B. Smith's Mystery quilts. We did a baby size each this year and it was nice to have some time to chat and relax in between clues though we really didn't have much extra time! These clue pics aren't in order and you see my colors and Kathy's....









Here is DJ helping us out with trimming..it was her first sewing experience.











Kathy is a pro by now and was speeding along and used two different machines throughout the day. She needed some help threading and such but other than that she did her own thing.



DJ also was chief ironer. She did almost all of my ironing and most of Kathy's too! It was nice to have a third set of hands helping us out :)






They did manage to get a shot of me too! And here is Kathy with her completed top without borders and then with cool borders. She thinks it will wind up as her nephew Seth's. He will love it!







And here is mine and I think this one is going to DJ's niece or nephew when he or she is born.



We had a nice time and it was great to actually sew for an entire day again! It has been about two months! Happy New Year!

How fun indeed and the quilts turned out nicely!!

After I get moved we should have a sewing day together!

It looks like you have a giant over sized ironing board, do you? I need a new iron, ironing board and cutting table for the new house.

Cutting and ironing are the first steps towards getting DJ to quilt...keep it up....before you know it you will have a new convert....I'm STILL trying to convert The Missus....As you know I live in hope!LOL Both yours and Kathy's tops look fabulous.
