    well actually she's the daughter of my dear friend but we call each other niece and aunt.

    any way she's 4 (she'll be 5 in 2 months) and she made this table runner and 8 placemats for her mother's birthday next month.

    i did all the rotary cutting and i only worked the pedal on the sewing machine because she couldn't reach the pedal.

    she fed the fabric thru the sewing machine and kept an excellent 1/4 seam.

    its a cheater fabric (she didn't sew the hexagons) but i'm still really proud of her.

    i made the log cabin quilt to give to her mom for her birthday. its from the same fabric line so everything matches.

    i'll do all the quilting - she said that she wasn't ready yet for quilting.



    placemats - she made a total of 8

    She did a great job and must have a really long attention span for a child her age to accomplish all that in one day.

    Looks like you have a great protege! She did a great job, and only 5? My, my, she is one talented kiddo. To match "Auntie" of course!

    I couldn't help noticing that your quilt matched your other helper too! At least in the photo! LOL

    i couldn't believe she had the attention span to finish in one day too.

    we would sew for 90 minutes and then play 3 games of air hockey.

    i started her with pillows about 3 months ago. then about 1 month ago i taught her to make the origami purse (the link is on this forum).

    she made 2 origami purses (1 for each grandmother). her and her mom each have 1 too - so all 4 ladies have the same handbag for when they have lunch together.

    when we were done with the quilting she picked out a bunch of ribbons and some batik fabrics because she wants to make a woven ribbon handbag next time she comes over for her mom.

    i just adore her. she's very mature for her age. she does a little show called "samantha on the spot"

    here's a link to her you tube shows
