    After sewing the pieces, it is important to press the seams in the direction you want them, so he is doing that

    His finished quilt block...which by the way is named Shoo-fly. Isn't that a neat job he did? Notice how all the seams meet exactly, and he has good sharp points on his triangles?....Oh!..............I think I'm bragging! ;-))

    He's so cute, sewing away!!! And I can't believe how his block came out absolutely perfect!! Good for him!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :D

    My two grandkids who live near me have just started sewing. One is almost 9, the other 6. I've not let them use the iron (or rotary cutter), but now will rethink that, after seeing how well your grandson is doing with it!!
    :D

    He started this two summers ago. He worked on this block again this year when he visited. I gave him my oldest sewing machine to take home with him. I think he has his quilt almost finished now.

    Better than I can do I tell ya. That is awesome. I too would love to see the completed quilt. Just think if he is this good now how totally awesome he will be years from now. Great masterpieces I have no doubt.

    Thanks you all...I will have to show this to anthony next time he visits.
    I am anxious to see his finished quilt also. I'm sure he will bring it to me to have quilted, so will have a chance to photograph it to share.

    And brag you should!!!!!!!! What a total doll he is! First of all, he is an adorable boy!! My mom was a redhead, and I hoped to end up with one, no such luck. He's just sooooooooo cute. Then, on top of it, so intent and focused on his project...and check out those points! Wow...did he love it? Do you think he might want to make something more than just the one block? What fun...Thanks for sharing.

    You will have to tell Anthony how we all think his points are great, he's adorable AND that it's wonderful that he stuck with his quilt top. Looking forward to seeing it when he visits you. You should be so proud....bragging about grandchildren is in our job description--it's a requirement :) :)
    Congrats on a fantastic job.

    What a wonderful job! I have trouble getting the men in my life to just look at my work. They are all outdoorsmen. What a great memory for both of you. :D
