K creates her own quilt

Miss Special K is working on her own quilt. I purchased some yardage (her choice) with strips of cats and other designs. I cut it apart and we are inserting other fabric rows and she is creating her own rows of things she has cut out and fused. She's only in kindergarten now--I hope she always will love fabric and sewing as much as she does right now. Mommy and Daddy weren't even out of the driveway when she is dragging me to the studio to play!




She is very careful when she is cutting! And her teachers wondered where she got such good cutting skills! :)














Viewing her quilt to see if it is how she likes it. She definitely has her own opinions on where she wants things on her quilt--I might make a suggestion, but she doesn't follow it very often! :) That's good--she has her own mind on why she wants things in certain places.















Quilt in progress...the blue rows are the ones where she is adding her own designs. We got all the center rows done, and now need to add the side borders. She wanted it all done because she went to the Quilt meeting with me and she wanted to have her own show and tell. She took what we had done so far, as well as the pillow and baby doll quilt that we had done.

Oh how fun! I have a little QIT (quilter in training) and even tho she's only 3, she also drags me to the sewing room. Does Miss K use the sewing machine? If so, when did you start her? Baby keeps asking, but I don't know......

What adorable grandkids you have. Miss K is doing a great job and really looks like she has the "drill" down. I have a peephole just like hers on a ribbon tied to my sewing tools basket---indispensible tool and right where I can find it easily.

How wonderful to have a little one to share your joy of fabric and quilting. Having only grandsons, guess I'll have to wait to see if I get a little girl one day (but not too soon!)
