Our road trip is over

I drove Mom home today. I don’t fly home until tomorrow so I had time for dinner out with my brother, brother-in-law, and Mom.

But, before and then after dinner I coached Maureen through making a Quick Strippie. I let her choose her fabric from my stash (FaceTime!) and then I cut and kitted the project to bring with me. She has made quilts in the past but it’s been a while so she needed help.

The top was done before I left for dinner and I’d gotten her started on pin basting it so she could quilt it when I got home.

I’m kind of shocked that she got it all made today but she wanted me to trim it for her before I left so she kept working until it was quilted. It still needs to be bound but lucky for her, she has Mom here to help because I head out early in the morning!


  1. What a great quilt! And wow… Maureen is some kinda speed demon! Thanks for sharing her project with us! Safe travels!

  2. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, you and your mom always look so nice in your pictures. Very photogenic! Love the quick strippie – I have one pieced but need to finish it.

  3. So glad you had this family time! You and your mom always look happy together and collaborate so well! Maureen’s strippy came together quickly and looks great!
