On a rainy Sunday.....


The weather was boring today .. Just a soft rain, tho enough to stay at home ! Dawn and I are swapping beautiful drunkard path blocks. Actually she sent me a pile and I still have to sew them ..... So I thought that today was a perfect day for it. Everybody at home was enjoying her or himself so ........sewing time for Mammy . I opened my closet to search for some fabrics! and...... I found a bag with scraps which I got from Kathie, and she showed me last her quilt she made with blue fabrics .... And the inpspiration came up. Sorry Dawn, I always have very strong inner feelings. So no drunkard path today but a blue project.

My daughters with a helping hand.
I like squares. I love the simplicity! In the bag with scraps was only one fabric big enough for the border!


( why do I always make a mistake with a simple pattern like this ... believe me I only found it when I uploaded this picture !!)
In my turn I inspired my daughter ...... She played with her fabrics and had so much fun !!

Blue is my favourite colour to work with and I love your new quilt. Also love the pink top your DD has put together.

Carolyn said...

Lucy, it looks beautiful, even with the slight error! (Which I really had to look for...if you hadn't mentioned it I never would have noticed!) Aren't rainy days fun!

Bea said...

See your daughters are very PW-busy - :-) - hope my sons - or just one of them - will even sew one time. In the moment (they are 4 and 6 yo) they love more to race with cars - its o.k.! Wonderful quilts.

What a treasure to quilt with your daughters. The mistake took me awhile to find, therefore it can't be that bad. I think every quilt should have one mistake, thats what they call the humility block.

It took me awhile to find the error, I think it just adds character.

I like your blue quilt, even with the error. Your daughter's pink quilt is adorable. Isn't fun to just sew when an inspiration hits you? That's what I did this weekend too.

Love this quilt top - very lively. Very generous of Kathie to send you the scraps. It's only a mistake if you let yourself think that way. Instead, think of the block as being lively, bold, and unwilling to follow the rules! It's your inner Maverick rising to the surface.

Dawn said...

Oh Lucy! I love your blue project! Way better than drunkard path blocks! I like your little mistake! It adds a spark! And your daughter with her blocks is soooo cute! I"m glad you played.

Gail said...

Two lovely quilts on such a dreary day. How wonderful that your daughters sewed along with you! I had to search for the error, too. Shhh- no one will ever no if you don't mention it.

Karen said...

What a wonderful rainy day, family around and all contented, and beautiful quilting projects.

Sandra said...

I love the 'mistake' as well as the blue and white colours - always very fresh looking :-) Your daughter is turning into quite a quilter - she looks very comfortable at the sewing machine and she laid out her fabrics very nicely!

Rae said...

She looks so sweet there at the sewing machine. Like mammy, like daughter.

Mmm ... the ideal climate to be in house sewing. Very nice the quilt!!!!!!!!

I must be really blind, because I can't find the mistake, but, it doesn't matter. I find the whole thing just enchanting!

Lucy, what neat pictures! Your daughters are beautiful and are having so much fun!

I just wanted to tell you that my sister is leaving the west coast (USA) to fly directly to Amsterdam tomorrow. How I wished she could stop in an see you and say 'hi' to you in person from me!!!! She'll just be in the airport a few hours and then is on her way for a month in India. Since she won't be able to visit. . .I'll just send my greetings this way!

Your girls may not remember how many toys they have, or what they had for supper, but they'll always remember sewing with Mom. Great pictures.

Happy New Year. My weren't you all busy busy busy and I couldn't see "the mistake" until I looked at the photo of your design board and then back to the photo of the quilt. Doesn't show!
