This is the doll quilt my daughter made when she was 4. It is about 18″ x 23″ give or take a bit depending on where you measure. 🙂She tied the outside squares and if I remember correctly it was because she got tired of sewing the hearts and X’s by hand. Can’t say that I blame her, she was only 4. Not all of her stitches go all the way through to the back but that is okay, you learn as you go. Here is another quilt (12″ x 15″) she made at 7. I did the binding and tabs. You can see where her stitches improved greatly. Her creative energies have included home-schooling (trust me it takes a LOT of creative energy to home-school) and cake decorating. Now she is creating unique cupcake recipes.
I wonder if she’ll pick up sewing/quilting in the future. She has a great eye for color and design….
Hey Baby, do you remember these? Love you Mom.
