My six year old started his first quilt today. He is so excited.
I let him have a baby quilt kit I had bought on clearance a while ago.
I cut the pieces out for him today. He is making it for his baby sister.
He's doing a great job!
As for me, I finished the binding on my other two quilts and will share them with you once I get good pictures. This is another quilt being made from donated fabrics from my church. We are doing a service project of making lap quilts for local nursing homes.
This was my first attempt at appliqué and I was very happy with how it turned out. I finished the quilt top tonight, but these are pictures I took earlier today.
I'm enjoying the creative process of making do with limited quantities of fabric that I probably would not have picked out myself and try to make something beautiful for someone else. It's a big stress-reliever.
I'm also learning new skills along the way with no pressure to make it "worth my time and money." I also like to think of the little old lady who will be kept warm by this little quilt. I hope she enjoys it.
