Christmas Quiltalong progress

Before I get into the Christmas quiltalong, I wanted to share a few pics of my youngest, Hannah, from her senior ball last night: Hannah and Anthony looked great, didn't they?? The bottom picture is Hannah and her best friend, my "extra" daughter, Sophia. Very bittersweet for me. I am 48, my oldest child of my 6 will be 31 this year and Hannah is my baby at 18. This will be my very last prom. I don't mind my age, but I HATE my kids growing up!!!! Now for the quiltalong. The next part in the mystery has been revealed and I have 6 of the blocks made. Now, back to stitching to finish up the other 18 blocks!!

  5. Oh your last prom, that's a sure tear jerker isn't it? Love that he wore a matching tie, to cute, in my day the guys wore cumber buns, yikes I better save that one up to torment my 6 year old with, right there along with the "I was born before the Internet" - and remember it's development too.

  8. Love the pics, Reenie - such a happy time for them (if a bittersweet one for you!) - their whole future is before them.

    Like your block layout too - this has been such fun!

  9. I hate the growing up part, too. I would have had a dozen but he wouldn't agree to it. I am 47 and my youngest is 21. Every day seems to bring another "last time". Your girls are gorgeous. Hope they had a good time.

    I love your Christmas quilt along. I wasn't sure with the last post but I am liking it now.

  10. Hi Reenie - your daughter is gorgeous. My oldest is graduating this year, I am a wreck and her prom is still a couple of weeks away.

    Plus loved seeing the picture of Shellie!
