    The young lady, and the quilt is very beautiful. I would have never started out with making a star quilt for my first quilt. I did make one on point, and I don't plan on making another one any time soon. She did a great job, and tell her to keep up the good work. If she is that good now, she might become a quilt teacher or something else in the field.

    Thanks, everyone for the wonderful comments. I am so proud of Marisa and so glad she didn't listen to me when I said "are you sure you want to do that? Don't you want to try something easier?' She pieced it on my 1973 Kenmore. When I offered her a brand new machine for graduation she said "No thanks, can I have the Kenmore?" So it's hers now and she loves it because it's "vintage" and it is a real workhorse. She is just a really neat kid and I am so lucky to have her as a daughter and now as a quilting buddy.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Very ambitious and very successful!! I still have my 1973 Sears Kenmore and it still stitches beautifully and makes the best buttonholes! Although I do love my new Janome MC6600.

    Thanks for sharing that wonderful story and the photo's. She is a natural talent with quilting. I love the look of this quilt. The colors are beautiful and all of her stars look fantastic. It makes a stunning wall quilt. I would give her an "A+" for all of her effort, construction and outcome. I was happy to read that you let her figure it all out on her own and didn't try to make it for her. That is the best gift you could give her for her ability to learn in life.

    "Teens" have shown a decidedly Inspirational ability
    to see, analyze, interpret, & speculate.
    Beautiful Quilt!! Hope her teacher sees her accomplishment for what she has achieved.

    This is really exquisite. She did an incredible job with all aspects of the quilt. She has a natural talent and the ambition to do research and figure things out. She has the ability to make good money from her work if she decides to continue with this talent.
