Passing on a tradition
My granddaughter has been talking about learning to quilt for a long time. This past weekend, she came with her dad and brother for a quick visit. While the guys were out doing "guy stuff" at Lowes we had a short time to get into the sewing room. I told her that now that she is seven, I thought she could start to learn to quilt. I set my machine at slow speed and she made a four patch quilt sandwich. She listened to directions very well and sewed rather straight. We didn't have time to put any binding on but she was sure proud of herself! I told her she is ready now for a four patch lap quilt... maybe next time when they visit.
