Mother Daughter Sewdown

Last year at Sew South, I met some amazing peeps! One great thing about some of the gals I met is that they also got their love of all things textile from their moms. (Y’all know I learned all from my Mom aka The Guru.) Chrissy decided it would be fun to coordinate a Mother Daughter Sewdown. Obviously The Guru and I were in!! Chrissy had heard about this great retreat center in Waynesville. It’s all set up for a fabulous sewing or quilting retreat…complete with books, rulers, cutting tables, ironing stations and lots of adorable rooms to sleep in! This is the outside. I spy a BARN QUILT! Here was the team: Chrissy & her mom Linda, The Guru and I, Nicole and Sweet Vic and Amanda Jean and her mom Bev!

My pictures of the inside were not awesome (messy). I swiped this one from Chrissy’s instagram feed. Look at all the books!! BOOKS!!

I putzed around on Friday night chatting away. So, Saturday, I was ready to get my sew on! I brought two layer cakes to make my new Lazy Sunday Quilt pattern! I decided to make them simultaneously. Sweet Serenade is a gorgeous muted line with blacks, peaches, teals and creams.

I finished up Sunday morning just before we left! I’ll be showing more of these when I finish them:)

I’m also excited to report that Sew Lux Fabric is now offering the Lazy Sunday pattern as part of a kit! They have High Street and Sweet Serenade with plans for more in the near future. This quilt is so fun to put together!! The guru also made her blocks for a Lazy Sunday baby quilt! She used Road 15. I love it!!

As always, I should have been better about getting pictures of everyone! I had a great time!! We are already planning the next Mother Daughter Sewdown…
