    My 12 Year Old Neice made this

    Last Christmas I bought my neice a couple layer cakes and and jelly roll hoping she would get into quilting. She was excited and put this together all by herself and tied with buttons. She then gave it back to me asking me to put the binding on. To my disapointment she also said she didnt ever want to do that again.. I finished the binding today. She did a nice job on matching all her corners and I think it turned out really cute.
    I hope someday she will decide she wants to try again.

    She did a wonderful job on her quilt. Perhaps when she gets older she will take up quilting again.

    Preteens and teens are a lot like politicians - they are famous for changing their minds. Tell her how impressed you are with her work and that she finished the project. (Most of us still struggle with that one!) Then smile and let her try other things.

    Remember you introduced her to a hobby. If later in life, she returns to it, then take that as a compliment. If later in life, she ventures in other directions, compliment her and her accomplishments.

    Well, it seems that I remember saying that there were things I didn't want to do again, and now they give me a lot of pleasure. Changing our minds is a perogative!

    She'll remember this some day with fond memories and come back to it. Once you've quilted you can't say no.

    She did a great job and I hope she tries again. Whenever I finish a quilt I am so tired of looking at it and glad to put it away or send it away. When I get to see it again I am amazed that I did it and get inspired all over again. I hope this happens with your DN.

    She will always remember the project that you helped her with.

    It took me.... 8 years.. to attempt another quilt after tying my very first quilt. I can say with confidence that I will never tie a quilt again, but I do regret thinking that I never wanted to quilt at all after that first experience

    I love her quilt! My first top was also done as a teen, completing a project my mom and her sister had started for their hope chests. Did not dislike doing it, but certainly not particularly interested in doing another. Fast forward xxxxx years and once again I'm making quilts. This time for my own enjoyment and loving it! So you never know when she will decide to continue.
