Quilt in a Day – Update

3 Feb

Happy Friday!! I can not tell you how happy I am that it is Friday. This week has been crazy at work and I am just ready for two days without the office drama. Last Friday I posted about my families quilt day. I am please to say that we had a great turnout and lots of people finished the top of their quilts. We followed this tutorial for the Strip Quilt Race. In the video one woman gets her top done in 35 minutes! Let me tell you that did not happen at our quilt day but I think it was pretty successful to say the least! Check out some of the pics!

My Quilt! Because my seam allowance was 1/2 mine ended up being a little off. But I added a 6 inch border all the way around and made it square!

The sister-in-laws quilt! She did an awesome job...once she got the bobbin threaded.

Everyone’s quilts turned out so different but all were beautiful. Head over to The Sweet Life of a Sewing Mama and see Alisia’s wonderful quilt. She was the winner of the day, she got her top done the quickest!

Have a wonderful weekend!
