    Never too young...to get hooked!

    My oldest granddaughter (not quite 2) walked by my makeshift design wall and voila...a couple blocks fell off...she automatically picked them up and put them back on (quite straight the first time) only to have a few more fall off...she worked diligently and the final picture says it all..."I did it!"

    By the way, she moved some of the blocks around and I like her placement better. The quilt is for her momma, so it's only right that she helps grandma make it. (And yes, I've also taken her to a couple quilt shops and she's mesmerized with my sewing machine...I may have a quilting buddy in the making...yippee!).

    She is adorable and my guess is she has the bug. I always sewed while keeping my grands. They heard the machines and wanted to sew from the time they could ask. You'll be showing her quilt soon.

    Now that's a neat idea! That's "building memories" as my friend and I say about things we have done over the years with our children. Frame the picture and give to her mother too.

    Building Memories: We took our children to Hiddenite in N.C. to dig for emeralds ... dug in the dirt all day while our husbands napped ... had a picnic lunch. Husbands teased us saying we thought we would find an emerald. Didn't, but our children are in their late 30's now and still talk about that trip. Ha.

    Such a sweet darling! My two are 6 and 3 and are totally mesmerized by my sewing machine. I can remember the older one sitting on my lap when she was 2 or so, watching me chain piece and encouraging me with many a "Nother one Nana!!" I think you have a design guru here!
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    How wonderful and she's got a Beautiful cheeky face. My granddaughter is only 6 months old I can't wait till she's old enough to sew with. After having three wonderful sons it's lovely to have a girl to squidge lol

    Your granddaughter is a cutie. She'll probably want to help you design quilts every time she visits. At least, it's quiet compared to getting out the pans and lids in the kitchen. My friend's granddaughter wants to cook with grandma. Thanks for sharing.

    That is so sweet. She is stunningly adorable! I would save her t-shirts. the one she has on is adorable and would make a great little quilt when she grows out of it. Love those rosy cheeks and beautiful smile.

    She is adorable. She may well be a future quilter in the making. I am sure her Mom will be delighted that she helped you out.
