    Her first "practice" quilt

    Awhile back I posted that my oldest daughter wanted me to
    teach her how to sew and quilt.

    I purchased a cheap sewing machine for her from WalMart and
    gave her more than enough supplies to get her started. Yesterday
    she even joined the QB.

    This is a picture of Didrika2013 (my daughters QB name) first attempt
    at making a "quilt" its to small to be a lap quilt. But she was to excited
    to wait for "sewing lessons" and such also she wanted to get a "feel" for
    the rotary cutter (never used one before).

    This is what she made, of course I will give her kudos for trying and
    not shying away from it. Sure looks better then the first attempt I did.

    She used a purple and teal for the backing.

    I love the fabrics and love the colors, good job. I'm glad that her "feel" for the rotary cutter wasn't a literal feel.

    It's fun to know we've got a new and very excited quilter. Good job to both of you - newbie and teacher.

    Certainly is better than my first attempt. It is lovely. She is on her way and I hope she continues quilting and finds joy is the creation and in giving quilts to others to bring them joy. Nothing better than that,is there?
