The Party is On!

This week, there has been zero sewing happening over here.  Instead, last weekend my father-in-law came for a visit.  He is actually moving here in a few weeks, but came to make a few decisions about the house he bought before he closes on it and moves.  We are thrilled that we will have him close to us very soon, because right now he is eleven hours away, and that is just too far.

And tomorrow, my grandparents are arriving for the weekend.  Usually, we go to visit them, but they decided to come here instead and I'm super excited to see them!  So instead of sewing, my time lately has been spent visiting, cooking, and cleaning between guests.  I have been able to plan my next quilt though, even if I haven't gotten any further along in the process.  I pulled this summery palette from my stash, and I'll get busy cutting into these next week!

Before we party, check out some of last week's eye-candy.  Julie's Quilts and Costumes shared two soft and sweet baby quilt finishes.

Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting linked up a whole slew of pretty charity quilts!  Awesome!

And I just love this quilt by JanineMarie at Quilts From the Little House.

Y'all are amazing.  So, without further ado, let's get this party on!

1You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!

5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Enjoy the visit with your grandparents, Kelly!

  2. I'm so excited for you to have your dad close by!! We had our first visitors in months this past weekend and loved every second of interacting with others again. It couldn't happen unless both our families were serious about taking precautions for the past several months! Anyway...there will always be time to quilt later. Enjoy your company!

  3. Have fun with your family! We're 18 hours from ours, so I know the challenges distance prevents... and that Coronavirus is also presenting! I miss my family.

  4. It sounds wonderful to have family visits and family moving near by!

    Sometimes the fabric selection and planning part of a new project is the most fun part!

  5. Aw, thanks for the shoutout! Have a good time with your family while keeping everyone safe. Having a relative living close by instead of 11 hours away will be so good.

  6. Beautiful fabric pull! Yay for having your family move close by!!! Thank you for featuring my charity quilts!💗


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
