More Sewing Enthusiasm

 How old were you when you learned to sew?

With a bit of experience and guidance, an older child can work on her own. It is so exciting to make  fabric choices (and not be handicapped by years of being told what will and will not go together.)

Pressing can be done carefully, mindful that the iron is very hot.

The fun decisions of what to add next.

When the top is completed, rows of quilting stitches hold the quilt together. And, it is certainly more interesting to make the rows curve back and forth across the surface.

An overlapped back, the top and bottom edges stitched, and a pillow is made.

We love it!
