So last week Miss Darling spent Tuesday with my mom - (Thanks mom!)
Mom had pre-cut some scraps into 5 inch squares.
She let Miss Darling dig through them and pick out her favorites.
Then they got out a little featherweight for Miss Darling to learn on.
(I've really wanted her to learn to sew, but as the mom, I just don't have the patience to teach her!
I could teach anyone else, and have, but when it's my own kids... I just can't do it!)
Anyway - Grammie and Miss Darling spent some time learning about how to work the machine...
And 4 hours later, I came back and guess who was still sewing?
(I seriously thought she'd give it 30 minutes and be done!)
Miss Darling picked out the fabrics, laid them out in a way that was pleasing to her, and Grammie helped her get them stitched together. Then Mommy (me) sewed on the borders and quilted it for her.
And then...... TaDa! The quilt!
It's about 35x40 - perfect for her!
She's determined to give it to her younger cousin - but I think we're going to try to convince her to keep her first quilt!
Last night she agreed that we have plenty of time to make another one for cousin for Christmas! Yay!
So.... I suppose I know what Miss Darling's gonna want for Christmas - her very own fabric stash!
(How could I say no?) :)
