You know you're in a little bit of trouble when your 10 yr. old runs off with your graph paper and comes back with a quilt design! She even has measurements on there... 60" x 80"... that's a pretty big quilt!
So, how can you say "no or not now" when she even comes back with her own stack of fabric?
She received these pretty fabrics (Sugar Snap by Melissa Averinos) a while ago for a birthday gift and we were able to find a few more to add to the collection over at Purl (bonus: they were even on sale!).
So, I am the designated rotary cutter, trimmer and ironer (if that is a word)! K. gets to sew and pin... and we're working on sewing all those pinwheel blocks together. We have just about 1/2 of them done.
I helped her out by making the binding (below).
I can't think of a better summer project than making a quilt with my girl.
I'm sure this one will immediately replace the one I just made her on her bed, but that's ok?! :) I know she's already really proud of the way this one is turning out.
Is anyone else making a quilt with their child? I thought it might be fun to start a quilting with kids group on flickr.
