    Val Val's first quilt top

    Val is my adopted DGD. She calls me Grandma Cupcake. She came over one day and said "I'm here to learn to sew." This is the result. Val just turned 8 on July 8th.

    Grandma Cupcake welcome from Northern California. I love her name for you. You must be really sweet. She is a doll. The quilt is great. She did a super job. Thanks for helping her. Sounds like you have a special relationship. Nothing better than helping the young one to learn new things. Thanks for sharing. BrendaK

    She did very well, looks like she had a wonderful teacher! Hope this is just the first of many sewing sessions for both of you!

    VERY cute!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Val did a wonderful job on the quilt top! I love her color choices and it is a treat to see a picture of her showing her pride at such a lovely accomplishment! Thank you for sharing. I would love to see pictures of any future projects that Val takes on.
