I don't remember which group my Mom read about doing this quilt race in. I think it's also called the 1600 quilt. Anyways, at Thanksgiving, while Skyping with my sister and niece in Nebraska, we all decided it would be fun to quilt and Skype together at Christmas (and race, of course!) What a success! I'm including mine and Mom's tops - hoping Jeannine & Anna post their quilt pics soon too.
OK, ok, I didn't win - Anna was the winner, but we all say she cheated since her Dad stood behind her straightening the strips as she sewed. And mine is wrong since I was somehow missing 10 strips. I'll be mad if I find them in my sewing room when I get home later this week. But I love my colors and I think we are all very pleased with the outcomes.
Thanks to Karen and Judy who first talked about Skyping and sewing together in Karen's UFO group. Now Jeannine and I are planning on working together on our Crabapple Hill projects. And we thought it would be nice to get together once a month to Skype and sew. Maybe that will help keep us working on those UFO's!
