    She did a great job. Hope she sticks with the sewing and quilting, I can't wait to be able nto teach my granddaughter, she's 20 months at the moment. So nice to see kids getting into the fiber arts and family teaching them.

    She is doing a very nice job, Quilts for kids is a great way for her to start out.

    Congratulations on teaching your granddaughter the love of quilting. I am so happy because a lot of tradiational things are being forgotten in this "fast" world.

    I'm happy to see that another young granddaughter has a sewing machine! My 6 year old g.d. got one for Christmas, but it was a very cheap "imitation" of a sewing machine, so I bought her a low-end Brother. She hasn't made any quilts yet, but she's made her grown-up cousin a purse and her little sister a pair of shorts!!!

    I love your granddaughter's quilt, and for a great cause, too!!!

    Cathy, she has always liked the fiber arts. She is active in Medieval Recreation and has learned three ways to weave, how to spin using a drop spinal, how to knit, crochet, and sew. I begin teaching her how to sew when she was 4 ( she made a tote bag by hand stitching using the running stitch) At 5 she was given a Simplicity Sew Precious sewing machine and made another tote bag to learn how to use her machine. At 6 she made a pair of shorts. She has stated that her next project is to learn lace making ( all styles :D) She has declared herself as a "Fiber Arts Specialist" ha ha

    Awesome... it's nice to know that I'm not the only grandmother who believes in starting them young :D
