I can't believe it!



I NEVER imagined that those crooked rows would turn into the sweetest little quilt. Next time 7 year old Sofia tells me to leave it alone, I will! Tonight she learnt how to audition fabrics for the borders, and how to sew them on and hold onto the ends so it all stays nice and even.

Tomorrow we will finish it up. Layer, quilt, and bind it. Stay tuned!

What a great job she did!!! I'm very impressed ... and love that idea for the 100th day of school (we did toothpicks this year).

Just looking at the excitement on your daughter's face brings a smile to mine. How exciting! Her first quilt (with hopefully a lifetime full of quilting to come). Congrats! You both should be proud. :o)
