    My grand nephew's first quilt

    This week my 20 year old grand nephew finally made his first quilt with me. He had been mentioning it for a couple of years but he has little time to himself what with classes and part-time job. He had the quarter inch seam down in no time! He made a simple stacked bricks top with pieces I had ready cut, then quilted it on my Tin Lizzie. I did the machine binding. He did a great job and wants to make another quilt soon. Another young quilter in my family!

    Great quilt and he did a super job on it! Now that he has run your Tin Lizzie, he might turn out to be your quilting buddy.

    Wow..he did a great job. Love all the colors too.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    That is AWESOME...and love how he took a nap under his new creation!!! Good for you teaching him...I am starting to tell people I will show you...instead of doing it for them. If they really want a quilt they will learn...that is how I got started.

    I love it when guys quilt. I have tried to get my husband involved at least to help cut pieces but he wants no part of it but, I have to be part of his scrap business. Go figure
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.
