    A couple of days ago my DH and my 3 year-old DGD helped me build my quilting frame. Today my DGD asked if she could "help me do it". So I gave her a long needle and some thread, showed her the "stab" method and off she went. I now have a 6 inch area that is basted to the max!! But she loved it.

    Hey, Granna, this is fun. Can I have more thread?

    I wish I could but I am quilting this for a friend. It was made in the 30's and he is going to give it to the maker's daughter as a gift.

    She'll remember this moment for as long as she lives! You should continue teaching her all you know as long as she is interested. :)
