    My daughter took a 4-day quilt camp at an LQS called The Cotton Patch. She had a ball and we went today for the "show" - it was her first real attempt working with a sewing machine, making anything at all for that matter. It was a ball for her, and me (I got to work on her binding a bit today...you'll see us at the machine together).

    Enjoy!

    Me and Sophia - helping her with binding. It was pajama day so all the girls were in their jammies!

    Your daugter is a cutie, and she did such a GREAT job on the quilt , you must be very proud ! Of course you realize that now she will need her own machine and stash, or she will take over your stuff :roll: LOL

    ROTFLMAO (did I do that right??)

    I noticed it too, but I don't know how to get rid of things in photos - I know there's a way. Yes, the girls had fun, ages 9-15 or so. Yes, I think I'm in deep trouble. We were in the LQS after the class and she was comparing BERNINA'S!!!!!!!!! Forget the stash, this girl's going for the gold!

    Your daughter looks so happy with her new quilt---and how awesome that your LQS has a quilt camp for kids in your area.

    Eying the Bernina's, huh? Man, you are in serious trouble :lol:

    Your daughter's quilt is beautiful, along with her classmates quilts. You are so lucky that your daughter now shares quilting with you. I tried years ago to teach my daughter but she wasn't interested in quilting but ofcourse her home has lots of the my finished projects. LOL
