    I love the zest my daughter has for quilting, but yikes! She is almost done with all the blocks, we worked together all day today on our projects :) She found the pattern on line at the Moda Bakery! Too funny. I can't wait to post pics tomorrow. This quilt may swallow her when it comes time to put it together!

    Isn't it great. Both of my boys qulit. Thank goodness they use two different machines. At least I only have to fight one for the newest machine to quilt on.

    My now ten year old made his first quilt when he was 5. It was supposed to be a quilt but we ended up making it into some pillow cases. He's working on a D9P.

    My 14 year old is making a blue D9P that is made from fabric left over from the log cabin his grandma (my mom) made for me years ago.

    I love working with both of them. I just wish that my oldest didn't want to use the only machine I can quilt on. And I wish both of them would learn to pin their own stuff.

    That's awesome. My DD made 1 quilt but doesn't seem to have anymore interest in it.
