    My DGD's First quilt

    My DGD is visiting me from Tacoma, WA and she made and quilted her first quilt today. She even used my Tin Lizzie. Her quilt will be a gift for her little brother when she goes home. Tomorrow we start a quilt for her little sister. We are considering this visit our vacation, we can do anything we want and have fun doing it.

    Her first quilt is beautiful and so is she. What a wonderful way to spend your "vacation" with her.

    Great job on a beautiful quilt!!! I love to see young sewers and what they are learning. It is a life skill that she will use for the rest of her life. Good for you, too, Grandma, teaching her.

    I think that is wonderful, grammy. Just such a joy for me to see these young girls and boys sewing. and the memories you are creating by teaching them to sew. Bless you and hope you continue to have fun.

    Love it when my granddaughter comes to sew with me. These are the times they will remember for years to come. She is such a sweet looking girl and she should be proud of her accomplishment.

    Awesome! I'd be sending her with a sewing machine when she has to go home. I think you guys started something great.

    You and your Granddaughter are making not only quilts but very "special memories". She did a great job on her quilt.

    Wow, she did a great job and I am green with envy that she gets to use a long arm at such a young age ! Keep up the great work and she will be a master quilter FAST! Bravo.
