Our first Quilt !

Mummy (that's me) is so proud of her two little Daughter's
enthusiasm for sewing... they just love it
...all the time they ask to do some.
 As babies they loved to sit on my knee and 'help' me sew
After buying them a shared sewing machine for last Christmas,
 it was all hands on deck to sew, everytime Mummy did..LOL
 We set about to make them their first quilt back in January.
 
First we picked the fabric and then we 
measured the bed it was for...LOL
 It had to be for 'dolly',
and Mummy had just the perfect fabric....
A few mini charm packs from the Moda Sampler box.
 we sewed and sewed and added some borders.
 Then Mummy quilted it for them....
 and found the nicest fabric...a stripey one to bind it in...
There we are a'Our First Quilts'
 All finished and keeping our babies warm.

Now to make the real baby a quilt....
 just a little more stitching to do....

 Happy Stitching!

 Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs

That is really sweet Dawn, you have given them a great start to possibly a life time love of sewing.
When my son was 9 he wanted to make a quilt, he made an eye spy quilt consisting of 8" squares of fabric which he joined and put a border on.The 'paid' me to quilt it for him.He paid with 3 hugs,2 milo's & 2 Jam & peanutbutter sandwiches.I am proud of him and I'm sure he is of himself.

Hi Dawn, that is just so lovely. Made me wish I had been able to learn from my relatives- Mum was not into crafts, my Aunt and Maternal Grandmother were, but we left my hometown when I was 10 yrs old. I taught myself to sew when I was in my teens, and to knit and crochet when I had my little babies. could not get the hang of tatting tho! :)
Your sweet girls will have a lifetime of enjoyment out of their sewing now!!!! Hugs from Sandy.

I enjoy sewing with my daughters as well. Helping and instructing as they gain more independence in their sewing/quilting skills.
