Teenager's first quilt, a scrappy pinwheel
Just had to show you the quilt my 16 year old neighbor Samantha made. I gave her free rein on my stash, she chose all the fabrics and the pattern. We went to Joann's together, she chose the blue chambray for sashings and border. I cut the pieces, and helped her pin the squares, then she sewed everything. I ripped out what wasn't quite right, she sewed again. She embroidered the sashings on my machine. I pinned the rows, and she sewed all of them. Then we pinned it together with backin and batting, and she quilted it on my machine. I just finished sewing the binding for her last evening. She is an artist, has a much better eye for color than me, and worked hard this summer to complete the project. I am so proud of her work, and what great fun for me, not to mention her company. She's a great kid.
