    4 year old DGS helped make this

    I have been teaching him to sew by his request. He started out pulling the straight pens and then pushing the pedal and now he is guiding the material. He sewed quite a bit of this quilt. He made it for his 4 year old cousin. I had a blast and so did he.

    That's great for a 4 yr. old. It's very pretty also. Couldn't have done better myself.

    It is darling! Doesn't it feel great helping the little one learn 'grown up' stuff? It makes them so proud - us, too!

    That is awesome! My grandmother had me on her treadle sewing machine when I was 5 or 6 sewing quilt blocks together. Too bad she was so busy she didn't get me to make a whole quilt. This quilt is really cute. He did a nice job.

    Wow! How wonderful is that to have the little ones wanting to participate. Please take a picture of his face when his cousin receives it. You know he's going to be very proud! You're a wonderful grandma! Please tell him we think he did an awesome job!

    That's a wonderful quilt! Good for him. And he's so generous to give it up to his cousin. I'll bet he wanted it for himself!

    Very cute!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    How precious, both for the time you spent with him and the thoughfulness of him to give it to his cousin. Does he get one of his own?Merry Christmas. BrendaK

    What special moments and memories. Please tell him he did a great job. He must have a great attention span too.

    I think we underestimate what our kids are capable of. This little guy will grow with lots of confidence with this kind of guidance.

    I have a question... when you finish a rag quilt, is it okay to put a traditional binding on it? Is it better to bind or not bind? I am making one with my DSIL soon. BTW, love your quilt
