And I helped

Quilts are piling up in Maine and I’ve been helping. I’ve spent 3 and a half days at the tying table but now it’s time to head home.

    A yeoman’s job, and a fine one it was !~!

  • Looks like you got a lot accomplished. How wonderful!

  • You all are wonderful people!!! You have been very busy.

    I’m curious if you envelope the tops & backs with batting then turn and tie or if they will need binding…

  • Marcy:

    Great job! I am curious about the comment on “turn and tie.” I don’t have a longarm and would love to finish the tops I have peiced that never get quilted. Also, what is the big spool of “thread” beside you? Enjoy every last minute of beloved Maine.

  • That big roll of batting is no smaller than when you started. How is that possible? I think I need to purchase that kind of batting myself…neverending! Great job on the quilts!

  • I can imagine that seeing such a large pile of quilts was very satisfying for everyone. Good Job.

  • Sandy K:

    The group of ladies that go to the Maine sew in are such good role models. They look like they have fun doing what they love to do.
    Looks like it will be another successful quilt in.

  • Angie:

    Mary, are the string quilts difficult to tie through? Our local community service center ties quilts during the winter, and I was thinking of using my scraps and making them some of these quilts to put together. Does the needle go through the extra layer okay?

    Thanks for your example in helping others and sharing your love of quilts with them.

  • Linda in NE:

    Wow, your fingers must be sore from all that tying. Looks like it’s been a very productive sew-in.

  • WOW – that is some pile of lovely quilts 🙂
