    First Quilt

    My DGD, who will be 6 in May, and I spent the winter learning to sew straight seams on scraps, learning to iron (with those 4 inch irons). I got her a beginner sewing lesson book for Christmas and showed her how to hand stitch with a big needle and pearl cotton. So here is here first quilt...she picked the fabrics and sewed on turtle speed. My only contribution was folding the corners on the binding, and sitting by her reminding her to "put the foot down." And listing the steps of course. She plans on giving it to her sister for her first birthday in June. She is so proud!

    Aww, look at her!! Bursting with pride and joy! I love seeing the fabrics she chose -- sunshine and light bulb match her personality! And the flowers... she loves to see things grow, and the globe-- she cares about the world. How heartwarming that she wants to give her quilt to her sister. That's a generous, kind, and thoughtful girl. What precious memories you're making with your darling granddaughter, Jane!

    Now there's one very proud quilter. She did a fantastic job on her first quilt. How very unselfish of her to want to give it away to her sister. Maybe as time goes by she will be teaching her sister how to quilt. Congrats to you Grandma on a well done teaching job.

    Oh my goodness, the cuteness overload. Missing teeth, how she is holding it with no hands, and the look of pride on her face.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    This picture is beyond adorable. You can just feel her pride. She did a wonderful job. And to give her first quilt to her sister is so sweet. You just have to love her. Congratulations to both of you. BrendaK

    I love this! I remember being about 4 or 5 when my great grandmother (Mamaw) put me on her feather bed, handed me some scraps of fabric and a needle and thread. I've loved sewing and fabric ever since.

    I can't wait until the Lord blesses us w/grandchildren (if He does) so I can experience something like this. Her quilt is priceless.
