First Quilting Project a Growth Chart.

This last month, as you know, I spent with my wonderful grandchildren in Idaho.  Each child has such distinctive personalities.  I absolutely loved my time spent there. 
Nana and SuzyQ were both interested in learning to sew.  The machine says that 10 is too young so SuzyQ was relegated to cutting and ironing which she did well.  I did not get any pictures of her unfortunately.

I was very impressed with Nana. She took to piecing quickly and became very precise in the size and shape. I am sorry I had to leave before she finished, but I will share with you the finished product when her mom sends me a picture.  Lets give the girls a big hand for being such good beginning quilters.!

Very impressive. What a great memory, I still remember my grandmother teaching me to sew.

Oh, it is so nice to see the old skills coming back. Knitting, quilting, sewing - I'm glad the girls are interested. And I don't think 10 is too young to sew at all!
I can't wait to see the finished product.
