    Mikali is five, and for Christmas I gave her a FQ and a sewing kit/basket. I actually wanted to make her a doll quilt, too, but ran out of time. Then for her birthday in January, I gave her some charm squares cut out of fabrics from my stash.

    She embroidered the heart for the medallion, picked the squares to use and hand sewed the pairs of charm squares together for this quilt. Then she sat in my lap and "helped" me guide the fabric through to sew the rest of the seams (was getting to a point I knew she was losing patience with the sewing and not having a finished project). Yesterday I sandwiched it and ran the yarn ties through. I showed her how to tie a knot, and she tied all the knots except two. Today I bound it and she signed the label.

    Action shot!

    What a cutie pie she is! A very pretty first quilt with more to come, I bet. She did a great job. I love to see parents being so patient with their children when they want to learn something.

    I wish my niece was as patient with her little boy. He is so smart and eager to learn, but not much encouragement from parents. I wish I could be near him. He is so loving and gets so excited when he does something. Then they scream at him.

    I was never able to have children, but I have kept neighbor's children and really enjoyed the smiles on their faces when they got compliments.

    Cute! I think it is good that children learn to stick to it until a job is done!

    I am not so patient as I would like to be, sometimes :( but I think it's good for kids to gain skills and be complimented on them.

    She loves her baby. She also embroidered a little bib for it, and a pillow. That baby is spoiled.
