Ashleigh and Quilting

Ashleigh came for a weeks visit. The plan had been for she and I to make a quilt. I started by cutting fabric and as I did so she was putting blocks on the design wall and designing her quilt. She then learned how to safely use a sewing machine and how to sew a seam. We worked together on her quilt all week and got the body of the quilt put together. I want to finish the border and get it quilted for her. I think she really enjoyed herself and I loved being able to pass on the quilting skills. We have plans to make another next summer. She said she wants to make a quilt in colors her best friend likes so when she spends the night she'll have her own quilt to lay under.
She's proud of her work.
