    Mikali is five, and for Christmas I gave her a FQ and a sewing kit/basket. I actually wanted to make her a doll quilt, too, but ran out of time. Then for her birthday in January, I gave her some charm squares cut out of fabrics from my stash.

    She embroidered the heart for the medallion, picked the squares to use and hand sewed the pairs of charm squares together for this quilt. Then she sat in my lap and "helped" me guide the fabric through to sew the rest of the seams (was getting to a point I knew she was losing patience with the sewing and not having a finished project). Yesterday I sandwiched it and ran the yarn ties through. I showed her how to tie a knot, and she tied all the knots except two. Today I bound it and she signed the label.

    Action shot!
