    I'm soooo jealous. Both of my daughters made a few simple 9-patch blocks when they were in their teens and that is a far as it got. One of my daughters tried hand quilting, but didn't stick with it long enough to do very well, but I'll give her credit for trying. The heritage of piecing quilts and hand quilting is stopping with my generation. I do have one niece who is interested. Ironically, her mother is the only one of the four sisters that doesn't do quilting, so guess it's skipping a generation with that sister. Oh, yes, another sister's son has learned to hand quilt and does quite well. Now that he is almost 15, I'm not sure it's too "manly" to do right now, but who knows, he may come back to it.

    I bet you are proud! I tried for years to get my now 21 year old daughter, who moved back in to go to back to college, to quilt. Last week she came up to me and said she wanted me to help her make a quilt for her friend's baby shower. Needless to say, I was a proud Mom too! We both must have had an influence on our daughters when we didn't know it! Awesome!

    Congratulations! Take pictures along the way so you can have them to look back on. I see you are in Western KY - Bowling Green area?? I am in South Central KY - Elizabethtown/Hodgenville area.

    I'm so happy for you and your DD. She will have a lifetime of joy and skill from what she is learning from you. My DD is not at all interested in quilting or sewing. Her DD is 15, and doesn't have time for such. Maybe one day! I suppose my soon to be ex- DIL will get my stash, as well as my herd of machines, vintage and otherwise!

    That is so great. I have three daughters and they do not sew. They are missing the good stuff.

    How Lucky you are! I was excited when my daughter made a few small "panel" blankets when she was about 14. I thought for sure she would get the sewing bug. oh well it was nice sharing my love with her even if for a short time.
    Today she LOVES to choose fabrics for me to sew! HA!

    Hurray!! It will be wonderful to have a sewing partner and someone to pass on your tips of the trade to. Congratulations.

    l just love her choice of colors - its very young/hip. Both of my daughters, ages 29 and 23, have interest in quilting with me, but not as much free time as they'd like. We do sew together on rare occasions when we get an afternoon together.

    I know how good that feels. My granddaughter who is 26 now started quilting at the age of 15 and when time permits she still loves to quilt! The only one out of three grands!

    My daughter just told me today that she is assuming she gets my stash when I am gone. Of course she does I want someone to love it and use it like I do.

    That is so neat...especially coming from a 17 year old...so often at that age, they aren't ready to slow down enough to work with fabric, knit, crochet, etc. Life is coming at them so quickly at that age. Congratulations. I understand how pround you must be!

    I taught my daughter and daughter in law to quilt and they both made several ....now when they need one as a gift or want one for themselves they ask me to make it....say they dont have time...My DIL makes sure every new mother/father or grandmother/grandfather in her office gets a baby quilt...but she says "Now that they know "I" have a talent, they always ask "ME" to make them one....all she does is tell me what she wants...LOL
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:
