    DGD's Quilt Camp

    Originally, I had planned to teach my 9.5 yo DGD, along with two 6-yo girls, to make a simple, small quilt. After a trial run with a craft, my DD and I both decided the younger girls probably aren't ready for sewing. My DGD is taking to sewing, like a duckling to water. She picked out her favorite fabrics (BTW, she LOVES monkey! LOL), arranged them, then started pinning and sewing. She finished the quilt top, on Sunday. Next time she comes over, we'll work on the back.

    She did all of this, except for the appliqued heart, with her name and date. I'm so proud of her! Her quilt is 36" x 48".

    You are living my dream! I can't wait for DGD's to get old enough to teach and pray they will want to.
    She did an excellent job!

    Thanks, everyone! She's a wonderful student and has been being very careful, every step of the way. She and I are both really enjoying this!
