I am a busy homeschooling mama of five kiddos. I love to quilt, but am always trying to find stitches of time to do so....

I have been quilting, see?
Hand piecing is going very slow for me. I can't wait to get my sewing machine out of storage. We need to find storage for the Navy to move our stuff into and then I can pull some boxes of things out that we'll need. Luckily, since we were discussing living in the fifth wheel for three years, I packed some things seperately and made the movers label them "camper" so I could find the boxes easier. My sewing machine and bread machine are in there.
Both big girls loves horses, so when I came across this horse fabric I got enough to make two quilts. I have six rows pieced and four of those sewn together. The light green here, will be a small border before the horse fabric border. I know the girls will love it.
On the side bar, you'll notice that I have two BOM's going on. One starts this month and the other is this Christmas one. Sadly, I haven't even started the Christmas one so I need to get moving on that. The pumpkin one arrives this month and I can't wait!
I found this pattern while shopping in OR with my friend, Connie. I love it. Just have to get some fabric. The nice thing about living in the fifth wheel is that I don't have a fabric stash so I have to BUY! Shhhh, don't tell my hubby.
This is daddy and the kids watching a movie in the back part of the fifth wheel. The queen size couch is great because it fits all of us!!
