Design Wall Monday

Still plugging away on the wedding quilt, with a deadline fast approaching. I have two more weekends!

Luckily my sister is here to help. She re-ironed every other block's seams the opposite way so I could nest them as I assembled the rows. Yesterday I sewed five rows, leaving four to finish that task. There was a little complaining about the boring job I gave her, but it sure was a big help to me, lol!  See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times. 

Over the weekend we had a huge party at our house. There was even a band.
That's my hubby on the far right, playing with some friends at his 60th birthday party. It was a really good time and having the food catered was terrific!  First time ever that we didn't spend all night in the kitchen :). Today is his actual birthday, though, so happy birthday, honey!  Love you bunches!

Oh, if I had been the one to press all of the seams I may have whined, too. : )
Looks like a fun 60th party. My DH also turned 60 this year.

Happy birthday to your hubs! My sweet man has his birthday today too, he turns 66 and I'm so happy to have spent more than 48 of those years with him. Looks like your party was super fun.

Happy 60th Birthday Grant! That number deserves a party.

I dont mind pressing seams- feel free to call me if your helper decides to mutiny!

The wedding quilt is looking good. Thank goodness for sisters - I am sure the complaining was not that hard to take, at least if she kept on ironing.

Happy birthday to Grant!

Happy Birthday to Grant! 1953 was a good year. My Mum was born that year in March. She celebrated with numerous occasions!
