    I can't tell you how happy my DD made me this past weekend when she said maybe she would be interested in learning to sew on a long arm! My two DD's have never shown much interest in sewing and/or quilting. Not only will it be wonderful to have someone to share with, it will be great to know someone will put all my "stuff" to good use when I have moved on to glory.

    She wants a quilt for my DGS, age 10, so that is where her lessons will begin! :lol:

    I don't have any daughters and I'm the only one out of 4 girls who even knows how to sew. My niece asked me the other day to teach her to make a quilt. I told her I'd be honored to teach her! Can't wait, it should be fun.

    I know what you mean. I have one daughter and all she wants to know is when her NEXT one is going to be.

    my daughter made a total of ONE quilt. She included it in her portfolio when applying to school and it was LOVED and she got in! Her other work was great too (seemingly not just my opinion). Enjoy the time together.

    This is normal. As SHE ages, YOU will become much smarter, and if she's like my two were, she will soon be calling you for advice for her own kids!!
    My own gave me that "when I get married and have kids, I'm not going to.......(put whatever here)" and then after a few years both told me that when they opened their mouths to scold their kids, MY voice came out, saying the very same words!!

    So, give her a few years, say about 4, then again suggest her learning to make a quilt prettier than any her friends have.

    My daughter does not show any interest in learning (she's 21, but loves the quilts I make her). Her one friend does quilt (her father does and taught her) and I joke and tell them that they were switched at birth. They laugh at me. I'm hoping when she has more time, she will be interested. Saving a machine for her just in case. Maybe I can make a deal, she can teach me piano and I can teach her quilting.
