    Update on Emily's quilt (7 yr old granddaughter)

    She stayed the night with me last night and today, she sewed her borders on that she had picked out. I guess we will hit the store for some backing fabric. The colors show up better in the 2nd picture. She was brushing the hair out of her face...doesn't always love that pretty hair pulled back. For those of you that commented on my earlier post, she was tickled pink as we read through them. Also the picture is her "I finished my quilt happy chant."Name:  Emily's quilt top-2 8-8-12.JPG

    I am really proud of her. Hope I get to work with my other granddaughter this weekend when she is here to finish her top.

    Impressive little seamstress. She's darling.. hope she loves her new quilt. Have you seen the twister quilt? it starts out just like this one and ends up looking like pinwheel blocks. Like this one... (not mine) http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...34922.html#top It's fun to try new techniques.

    Dear Grandma and Emily,
    Your quilt is lovely. I love the colors and differant materials you have chosen. Agree with sewdarnbusy...impressive little seamstress. The Best of all your quilting, is a project with Grandma.
    Wonderful quilting project!

    Such a pretty quilt, and a great job for a seven...uh...are you SURE you didn't mean sevenTEEN year old?

    Her quilt is awesome. That is quite the undertaking for a 7 year old. She should be very proud of herself, and I know Grandma is proud, too. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice quilt. Especially super achievement for a 7 year old. She should be extra proud of herself.

    Thanks to all the grandmas and great grandmas who ever taught us anything about sewing. My first experience was when I was about 4. My gr-grandma set me up in the middle of her feather bed and handed me some scraps and a needle and thread. I've been "addicted" to playing with fabric since then. I love material!!!

    Your granddaughter's quilt is really cute. She did an excellent job!

    What a great job! I love your quilt, Emily, and I know it will always be special because you made it with your grandmother. Take good care of it and I know it will keep you warm forever.

    Proud of her you should be she's so sweet.
    She's better at meeting her squares right on then I am sometimes.
    That quilt looks perfect to me.
