She selected every single color combination - in fact, she was very insistent on what she liked together and what she didn't like.
We learned about the quarter inch seam and chain piecing - and before she knew it - she had all 16 blocks done.
As you can see, she's in her bathing suit (we were headed to the beach and had a few minutes while waiting for everyone - so of course she wanted to sew at least one more block!)
She sewed all the blocks together and then sewed the blocks into rows. She helped me pin baste it and then it was time for me to quilt it.
Here's the proud quilter holding her first quilt! I am so proud of her :).
I think her smile tells you how she feels :).
Here we are holding our quilts - now all I have to do is baste and quilt mine!
In addition to the quilt, she made the pillowcase dress for her doll (she learned how to zig zag) and the pillow for her doll (she learned how to turn and stuff).
Here we are together. The big quilt behind her is Tree Party that I made for her last year. Now my 5 year old grandson has decided he wants to learn to sew. We're choosing a pattern for him and then it's back to the sewing machine :). I am one happy Nana Girl!
Until next time,
