I have full control (she wishes she could do it by herself ) I told her when her feet reach the peddle she can take over. she enjoys pushing the reverse button and telling me I,m off the 1/4 seam line. I tell her hands on hands at all times
thanks lap quilter
thanks for ru reply grammey1956
Seems like she's developed any early interest in sewing which is wonderful. But, although she may have some control of the machine's features, I would still be cautious about what you let her do on her own. I would still continue to have her sit in your lap to sew just to be on the safe side. What a great opportunity for "together" time...which she will remember and come to cherish when she's older!
wow that must be fun fore them i have lots of scraps i think i will throw them in the air and make something using what she picks up letting her sew them all together.will see just having her make something will make me happy....thanks for replying so 4 not to early.....??????
thanks grammey 1956
I give my grand kid small scrap pieces some glue and paper so he can design his own quilt block.
Pin them to the ironing board, carefully measuring to be sure your block is square and the correct size, starch rather heavily, and press it into submission. The quilt police will never see. If it's not too far off, sometimes you can ease the block into place when you sew the top together. If you hand pieced, I think this is easier to accomplish because the seams are softer.
starch a lot
This is my first post too.
I might need more info but have you thought about stay stitching around the edge of each block? Remember at always "press" not iron them as any bias will stretch.
