WIP Wednesday post. My 9-year old daughter Quarta (her blogname... I don't like to give minor children's real names on the internet) made this quilt all by herself with lessons from me. Actually, she did most of the work on it when she was still 8, over several Saturday quilting get-togethers at the church, with fabric donated by some of the other quilting ladies. She had the idea of doing the appliques in the alternate blocks; teapot and teacup and a cupcake. After she picked up the idea of applique she really took off and designed the table and chair and candle all by herself.
And the Crumb-Along: I am almost ready to start sewing together. I have more than 120 blocks and plan to make a twin-sized quilt. Maybe I'll have something to share on that link soon. I'm getting really antsy to clean my sewing area and put away all those crumbs soon, but they're still there for now! I admit, it's kind of fun to dig and rummage through the huge pile and just see what I come up with. But seriously, the cat slept there last night. One or two more days should do it, and then we'll get back to just mildly messy.
