My sitter took on the task teaching her 4 year old charges to quilt. She borrowed a hand crank machine from the local quilt shop. The kids loved it. Unfortunately, the machine 'jammed' before they finished their blocks. They finished up on her machine. Now my son thinks he can quilt on my machine! He is very good at picking up material. When we go to the fabric shop, he generally picks up three fat squares and the colors work so well together. If I get a camera working, I will post what he and my sister worked on one afternoon.
