Description

My 11-year old granddaughter, Rosalee, asked me to teach her to make a quilt. We hand pieced a small doll quilt together a year ago and she did well. This year she wanted to make a quilt for her bed. I signed her up for a three week quilting class. She learned about the machine, rulers, measuring, rotary cutting, and piecing with straight seams. She loved the USA map printed panel and chose fabrics to add to it. Her instructor helped her pick fabrics for the borders. She wanted to make another quilt top using the world maps and I suggested adding it to the back. It was wider than the top so we set it sideways. I ended up doing most of the sewing on the back, but she helped with the measuring and cutting. It has been sent off to be quilted using an all over jigsaw puzzle pattern. When we get it back she will help with the binding and I'll post a pic of her with her quilt. She has lost her enthusiasm for this project at the moment, but I know seeing it quilted will spark things up for her. Sept.5, 2013. Back from quilters and I added a scrappy binding.she loved it so much I had trouble sewing on the binding as the quilt kept disappearing to her bedroom. I heard her talking to the quilt in her room this morning. "Welcome to your new home. You won't be leaving forever." Finis!

This is lovely smile Brilliant that you are passing your knowledge and passion on to your granddaughter and whilst her attention might wander at the moment, it is in the future that she will get the most out of it and give her brilliant memories of you and your creativity.
