    This site has so inspired me to get my 6 year old Granddaughter sewing, I don't get to see her often as she lives 500 miles away but gave her her own machine this last weekend. She had a ball. (I bought her machine at a garage sale for 2.00. and it is even lock stitch!
    Emily and Katie were great inspirations!

    Izy, You are right he told her "if you can't figure it out I will help you" I hope to get to Walmart today to work on her stash- Wish she was still here so we could do it together. She did tell me some favorite colors tho.

    You guys are so awsome for offering. I am fairly new at quilting only about 6 months so don't have a large stash to offer her. She was so excited. She douldn't wait for me to get pieces cut. She will learn all out that in a few weeks when we see her again. I can PM you the address. Thanks again.

    She is so cute!!

    You are a wonderful grandmother to help her make her first block and to buy her first sewing machine!!!

    I would give anything to have my grandchildren only 500 miles away. I live on the east coast and my grandchildren live on the west coast. :(

    PM me the addy, Emily loved getting all her mail. So we would like to see the same excited look on Maddy's face when she gets to open mail too.

    Us grandmas have to stick together and help our little ones learn to quilt. The memories we share with them will last forever.......

    I had forgotten about this lille machine I bought it at Rite Aid for half off so it was 10.00 plugs in or uses batteries Now I can sew when we go camping! :D :D Maddy's machine uses batteries too so we can sew together while we sit at the picnic table. I can't wait!! :D :D :D
