An old friend and her daughter (
and I were bugging about today. I had to pick up a backing fabric so we wandered off to the fabric store. Little one decided she wanted to make a quilt of her favourite things. At the store she picked the Canadian fabric (they are dual citizens currently living in the us) and the ombre teal used on the side borders.
When we got back here she sketched out her plan, I handed over the sharpie fabric paint pens and cut the 8" white blocks. The list of her favourite things include.
Me, my best friend, Butthead (her cat), mom, hearts, Canada, Dr. Seuss, and her iPad. The Butthead pic just slays me.
While her mom and I made apple cider caramels she created her masterpieces. Then. To the sewing machine. We went over pinning and why we do it. I showed her how to use the quarter inch foot. And let her rip. Then we learned pressing seams and pinning again. And we found a kid who LOVES the iron. Even though it did get a burn in. In really no time she had this top together.
I personally was impressed at how long this was able to maintain her attention. I guess I'm used to boys.
She picked a green frog flannel from my stash for the back. And while they went off for dinner I basted and quilted and bound it. Ready for pick up tomorrow.
And an in progress shot ...
