this past weekend my mom and i participated in a quiltathon!
it was sooo much fun!
there were 93 participants who spent either a half day or full day at the quiltathon, which was held at a local middle school.
the event was timed, from 9am to 5pm, so that we could establish a record for amount of quilters participating, and amount of quilts made.

these beautiful quilts were hanging all throughout the school, and in the large gym we were working in.

we ended up finishing 124 quilts!! wahoo!!!! they were smaller lap-quilts, made of 5 rows of strips, each consisting of 7 squares. the quilts will all be sent to an organization working in africa, which was coordinated by the middle school. what a great cause, and a fun event!! as a beginner quilter, it was so cool to be able to work alongside women of all different skill levels and learn new tips and tricks, and of course it was awesome to be able to spend the day crafting with my momma :)
