As I plan and prepare to register today for QuiltCon 2016 in Pasadena, I am so thankful for the added dimension quilting has given my relationship with my mother. Over the years, my mom has twice flown out to visit with me and make a quilt in a week for family members, and recently we have been collaborating on quilt making remotely (she pieces the top and sends it along for me to finish and gift). Having the common bond of quilting between us is something for which I am extremely grateful. And QuiltCon registration reminds of this because we will be sharing a room together there next year!
What are YOU thankful for this week? Here’s how to link up (link up open for 48 hours on Thursday and Friday US Pacific time):
- Link up any blog post the past week that discusses something that you are thankful for, no matter how big or small (Did you win a giveaway? Did your seam ripper save the day? Did a friend do something simple and kind that made your day?).
- To link an Instagram photo, click the Instagram icon at the bottom of the link-up screen, and use the URL of your IG feed as the link (for example, my URL is http://www.instagram.com/quiltingjetgirl). Please hashtag #QuiltyThankfulThursday.
- If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
- Comment on at least a few of the other Thankful Thursday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

So nice you and your mom can spend time together (or at least collaborate) doing something you love!
I think it’s wonderful you and your Mom can work on projects together, even from a distance!
I agree. It’s wonderful to have a mom to be able to share quilting the way you both do.
I am thankful for something today, but did not want to post it on my blog. Yesterday, my husband and one of my closest friends were in car accidents, and fortunately, no one is hurt. They were in two separate parts of town. Yes, there’s damage to the cars. But they can be fixed or replaced. As we know, you can’t replace a loved one.
We go about our business every day, and these things happen in an instant. This reminded me not to take anything, all those special moments for granted. I am grateful they are both fine.
I posted a pic from Flickr. I hope that is ok as I don’t write a blog (someone has to read all of the) and don’t have Instagram. I can see them but can’t comment or post.
Love how you work together on projects even if you are far apart. I’m thankful I could go to the longarm club with my mom this week.
Super awesome! My mom is crafty but in the paper sense… not sewing. Love that you have that with her and it will only strengthen as the years follow!
What a lovely connection, quilting is definitely something special that works across generations, and sounds great for next year too!
