    "Finally" finished

    Someone asked me to post a photo of Nadia's (GD-8 yrs old) first quilt when it was completed. She decided she wanted to quilt with some of the built-in fancy stitches. I think I made a mistake in letting her use those stitches as it pulled up the fabric somewhat. Anyway she did most of the work on this quilt, it's not perfect but I am so proud of her. This is a doll quilt for one of her American girl dolls and now she has picked out the fabric for doll # 2 a quilt!!! She is hooked!!!!

    Looks cute and fancy stitches are really fun to use. She had a positive first attempt so I think you've created a little sewing buddy, congratulations!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That is WELL DONE !!! RE: the pulling with the stitches.... i think it's great that you let her do it her way. That's how we (they) learn. Obviously she's been bitten by the bug since she is already planning her 2nd quilt !!!

    You have every reason to be proud of your DGD. She did a great job.

    My 6 and 8 year old DGKs are hooked also.

    If your mind can conceive it, and your heart can believe it, then you can achieve it.

    That's great! It's such a good idea to use the decorative stitches for quilting. She looks like she's loving it too!
