Too funny! After I start teaching her to sew and she learns to read, Iíll get her started. 😉

I loved the quilt you and your daughter made together. In fact, I thought the pattern looked familiar and lo and behold I went looking thru my pattern bins and there it was. Guess I really like it!

Did she help you sew any of the seams? My grandson was 5 when we watched one of Alex Anderson's Simply Quilts episodes on kids making quilts. He decided that he wanted to make a quilt too. We discussed what he would do with it -- keep it for himself, donate it to sick kids, or give it to a family member. He decided to give it as a baby gift to his auntie.

I cut 4 1/2" squares and he sewed them together on the machine while I supervised. Yeah, some of his seams were wonky (I redid a few after he went home for the day) but all in all it was a good quilt for a 5-year-old. It was 36" x 36" when he decided that it was big enough "because babies are really tiny, Grandma." I quilted it (FMQ kind of scared him that he might put a needle through his finger) and he gave it to his auntie at her baby shower. Cousin went to his baptism wrapped in Grandson's quilt.

She didnít help me sew any of the seams. She wants to sew but her attention span just isnít there yet. Iím scared of her getting her fingers near the needle of her attention wanders.

I realize that the title of my post could be misleading now that Iím re-reading it and reading some of the comments! Iím sorry about that! I didnít mean she sewed the quilt.
