    This grandma is so proud!

    My 9 yr old DGD is a beginning quilter. She wanted a wall hanging for her room that she could "pin stuff on". She made this top herself and I embroideried her name and quilted it for her. She did a great job!!! She chose the fabric herself and did most of the sewing too.

    She definitely has the makings of a great quilter! I hope she stays with it. She's got a good eye for color!

    She picked out great colors! I wish I had something like that when I was a kid.
