    Teaching 10 yr. old how to quilt...

    My DD & family just moved back here from Texas where her husband was in Army. My oldest GD wanted to make a quilted purse...so I made the quilt sandwich for her...showed her how to quilt around the flowers with free motion...left the room so she would feel relaxed & let her quilt. She did wonderful...and about half way thru she came out into the livingroom and said " Grandma you know what I want for my birthday? A sewing machine" Yes I am beaming with joy. I am so proud of her work ~! Alas,,,a quilter is born. Thanks for looking. Name:  017.JPG

    She is a beautiful little girl and with you as a teacher she has a great future. Pretty soon she will be sharing pictures of her quilts.

    Her quilting is looking good and she certainly looks at home behind your machine.

    I love the story of her you shared, and she is a very pretty girl. I like her birthday wishes. She is going to have fun as a pretty sewer/quilter.

    Wonderful! Imagine all that she will create with the skills you are passing down to her. It is such a joy when they 'want to'. May the times you spend together bring such happy memories.

    What a beautiful child she is. And to think she is taking after you by wanting to learn to quilt! How utterly perfect!

    Great job! She does need a sewing machine!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?
