    I'm so excited, my 6 year old is learning how to sew! She made her 1st quilt block and is super excited to make her 1st quilt like mommy! I hope she has the patience to finish it. I told her we could do 1 block per day (we are using 4 of the 5" charm squares to make a block) and then we will one day have a quilt. She said, "tomorrow I want to make at least 2!" She's a born quilter... Yay!

    It's so funny you say that about the stash sharing because I was thinking the same thing! Ahhhhh! I'll just have to buy more :)

    I agree!! Every quilter needs her/his own stash.

    How precious! What a great job Alyssa did! When she wins in a Quilt Show someday, be sure you still have the pictures.
