Big Ten Quilt 2008

It was that time of year again.  Time for us to gather and work on our BIG Ten quilt for the U of M quilt raffle.  We gathered at Robin's house (she is in the blue holding up the Purdue block).  You see from left to right after Robin, LTW, me and Judith.  (Yuki was taking the photo!)  That was our group this year.  If you remember I had all the blocks make up in kits so it made things much easier to put the whole thing together.  I think it took us about 3 hours to put the entire top together.  Robin fed us breakfast as we were all there at 9am on Sunday morning.
Here you can see out rows all finished before being assembled into the finished top.
As you can see here *I* am still working on the borders.  They all put their machines away and made me put both sets of borders on the quilt.  They got out the wine and were having some before I was even finished!
Here is what the finished top looked like.  I will have more and better pictures once it is back from LTW.
They let me have a few sips of wine while they were whipping me to finish! LOL.
All in all it was a wonderful day.  Once we finished Robin had made a wonderful spread for us for lunch too.  I am looking forward to doing this again next year!  Having the kits ready sure made it easier and less stressful for everyone.
