    my niece is in the Childrens Doll Quilt Swap.

    She picked this pattern out of Quilt Sampler Fall/Winter 2009. I modified the pattern to a wall hanging size and then she wanted to embellish it with butterflies because she thought it looked to plain.

    she did everything herself except - cutting the fabric and sewing on the bows.

    she made the prairie points in the pinwheel blocks and even did all the quilting.

    i taught her a quilt as you go method and i marked the designs with vanishing pen and she just traced right over them with thread.

    we closed the quilt like you do a pillow because she's not ready for binding and mitered corners yet.


    i've also attached a pic of the purse she made for mate in the swap. the fabric was given to me as a gift from luv2quilt on the forum.


    i'm so proud of her - she's been sewing for just over a year now and its just amazing what she can do.

    its going to be 3 posts of pics - so wait a few moments.

    Wow, she's a superstar, rockstar!!!!!!!!!! Tell her she's got big fans out here in CA!! And she's so on time, which is more than I can say for my DD. She's running behind, but we've corresponded with her partner, so I think it's okay for now!

    Way to go on this quilt kiddo, you must take after your auntie!

    i put fusible on the butterfly fabric and cut them out for her.

    then she ironed them on the quilt where she wanted them to go and she did a straight stitch to hold them down.

    she doesn't know how to do free motion so she takes a few stitches and turns the quilt.

    thats how she did the sun and the flower quilting - she'd take a few stitches and then turn the quilt and she just followed along the lines that i drew.

    Accolades to both mentor and "apprentice"! What a beautiful way to have a child express their creativity. The butterflies are a really nice touch and the little purse is just gorgeous. Thanks for posting the pics...brightened up my afternoon.

    Sam is VERY talented! If she's only five and she's been sewing for a year, that means she started when she was only 4. Wow!

    I really like both the quilt and the little purse. Very, very nice! :thumbup:

    Amazing job! Congratulations, Sam, on a beautiful quilt! Keep quilting and creating those masterpieces.

    My DD loves the butterflies you picked for the applique. She has some of them on pillowcase edging.

    It is fun to hear about your chance to mentor, Klue. Sounds enjoyable.
