    Red face What do you do to occupy a 6 year old GD...???

    I have my grand-daughter here for a couple of sleepovers and my little darling wants to do something - "grand-ma can I sew a quilt???" So off we go digging in my bag of bits and pieces of leftovers, she chooses the motives we cut out, the colours and other materials to match - in short we make a scrappy quilt, very scrappy...
    She sews....I unstich all the seams where she couldn't stay on the 1/4" line...., fix here and there, finally we did finish the blocks, Maylin helps me to place them so it looks good and then I sew them together as by then of course she lost interest and plays in the play-room with something else and I put everything together and add a border as otherwise this bright quilt would still be too small, even for a newborn little boy. So this is the top. I hope to be able to sandwich it and quilt it and add the border before the 2nd of December as baby is being dedicated at our church.
    It's simple but I hope you like Maylin's taste so thanks for looking!!!

    I think she has wonderful taste. I love to sew with my grandchildren.
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.
