    One proud Nana

    Never underestimate a child because of thier age. When my 7 year old granddaughter said she wanted to sew on one of machines my heart took flight. So in 5 days at her convience we sewed and this is the masterpiece she made.

    She and her quilt are both beautiful.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    How lucky of you to have someone want to follow in your footsteps. Her quilt is beautiful, and she is, too! And doesn't she look proud of her accomplishment?!

    She did terrific, great job and thank you for sharing. Beautiful little girl. My mom started to teach me at that age. And I am 65 and still love sewing and making quilts.
    Have a Blessed day

    That is a challenging pattern for her 1st quilt. It looks great. When my grandson at age 8 expressed an interest in making a quilt for his dog, we just did squares.

    She is adorable and I love her quilt! That is wonderful! Teaching kids to sew is such a full-filling job. In the end, the child is proud and happy for learning something new and completing a task, the parents is proud and happy that the child is learning a life-long skill, and the teacher feels all of that together. I know since that is what I do for a living, teach kids to sew. But I start them at age 8. So hats off to you, great job, and she'll have that quilt forever to remember her experience with you when making it.
    It brings back memories... my nana and I sewed together too,... a long time ago though...
    Happy Sewing & Best Stitches,
    Judi

    Wow, what a start. Bet she will be hooked for life. How wonderful to be able to share your passion for quilting with a new generation.

    She is an awesome kid - a kid who demonstrates this level of discipline and attention to details at such a young age is capable of great things!
