    My 7 year old grandaughter, Emily, worked on crumb blocks last nite.
    She wants to make a wall hanging when she gets enough made.

    Izy your directions were real easy for her to follow. Thanks for doing them for us.

    I say we should all send Emily a piece of fabric to start her own stash for her. If you send me your address I'd love to send her something.

    She's adorable Pam and her quilt is going to be wonderful when she gets it all done. I love the horse fabric that she picked out! :) Isn't it great when we can get the little ones interested at such a young age? My dgd started at 7 too. She's 20 now and didn't continue, but it was sure fun while it lasted. :D

    Way to go Emily!! You're off to a fabulous, fun start! :thumbup: (LOVE your stash :wink: )

    I'm sure it was adorable. I had seen some FQ in turqoise with both the hands and feet, so I bought them up, cause they didn't have it in yardage.

    You guys are all so sweet. Emily will be so surprised to see all the nice things you have written about her and her crumb blocks. She loves to get to stay all night with out any sisters so she can sew.
    She is just learning ---but my she is a quick learner.
    Thanks again everyone. I am sure she will be so surprised to get fabric in the mail.
    thanks again.

    Emily is so sweet. I love that she's taken an interest in quilting already. My daughter is going to turn 7 in June and I thought about trying to get her started sewing this summer. Any suggestions on how to start her out? And what exactly is a crumb block?

    Izy made a real easy tutor of the crumb block, (I hope i posted that right) and I'm sure your daughter would find this block as much as Emily did. What day is her birthday in June? Emily will be 8 on June 21
