    Had my granddaughter for spring break...she made a pillow for her Aunt in N.C. (her first star--Ohio star). Then we needed to have something quick and easy to make for her mama for Easter...so I taught her about whole cloth quilting and cross-hatch quilting; she got 2 pillows made and she was so happy she actually got 3 projects done in 2 days of quilting. She's 13 and loves to sew on my Janome 9000 (which she will inherit when she's 16). I'm a proud grammie!

    Your granddaughter is so very pretty and did a wonderful job!!! I wish I could get my 14 yr. old DD interested in sewing or quilting. My DGD who is 4, loves to help me, so maybe I will have a future quilter in her.

    She did a wonderful job on the pillows :thumbup: Please pass on to her our compliments :lol:

    She is very pretty, keep her interested in the quilting, it will keep her in the house and away from the boys :wink: LOL And how fun for her to be able to practice, learn and work on a a machine that will soon be hers :mrgreen:

    Sherri, don't count on it. My granddaughter loved sewing on my machine from ther age of 4 to 10, and I thought ,"oh boy, I have a girl I can finally teach to sew" Nope, no interest at all after she hit her teens.

    Don't loose hope...the aunt she made the Ohio star for was in her late 20's when she decided to learn to quilt...was in another state, so lots of long distance tutoring and she basically taught herself...she makes beautiful things and is very active in a large guild (in charge of safe child--I donate alot of quilts to her). But, alas, my older daughter lives here and has NO interest in sewing...she says "why should I? I have you and you're teaching Kaelyn". Gotta admit, she has a point.

    And thanks, everybody, for the nice comments...I am passing them along to Kaelyn.

    Those are all beautiful. She is such a pretty girl. It's good you are teaching her to love fabrics and quilting. She is one of us now.

    Vicki, funny, my granddaughter's name is also Kaelyn, and my daughter, Linda, said the same thing about learning to sew. LOL And both our GD are beautiful!! My Kaelyn is almost 21, so I don't think she is going to get interested , but she is going to make other people have beautiful smiles with her new career.
