Quilt With Us

My 10-year old son and I are working on a quilt for his grandmother (my MIL).  We've been having so much fun working on it!  It's paper pieced so it's easy for him to sew on the line.  I arrange the fabric and he sews on the line!

Jen, he did such a great job, I'm so impressed.  And it looks like he enjoyed sewing.

Awesome! It looks like the future of quilting is in good  hands, with our children and grandchildren learning.

What a great idea to use paper piecing to teach!  I bought my two GD's a sewing machine for Christmas with all intentions of giving lessons through the holiday vacation time.  We have all been sick off and on since and no lessons have been given yet.  My first project for them will be pillow cases.  Thought that would be nice and easy.

Awesome quilt, lucky Grandma!  And what a great idea to paper pc. with kids! 

P.S.  I envy you your flat work surface, wish I had one.

Such special memories.  My 14 y/o grandson has always enjoyed spending time in the sewing room with me since he was little.  The last 3 years he has learned to piece quilt tops with me and quilt them on my long arm.  He just did the quilting on a giraffe top I made him at Christmas; this was the fifth one he has quilted.  Love the memories we have made in that studio.

This is super!  He really looks like he is having fun doing this and I think the pattern is so great...especially for a boy to be doing!  I love the pattern.

Over the New Year weekend my grandson was visiting and so wanted to come into my sewing room with me.  I kept saying "Out...too dangerous" until he peeked his little head in and said, "Nan, I no touch, I just look?"  What could I do but let the 3 year old darling in.  He sat on the bench next to me and I let him push a few buttons...he had a ball!  When my daughter (his mom) stuck her head in to see what we where doing he sad, "OUT!"  He took his little "triangle, triangle, square" home with him!  Told his Dad he did the "sawing macheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen".

How nice it is to be able to enjoy a hobby with your son. Your mother-in-law will be pleased. What a great project design to use with him as well. Enjoy your project together.

He looks like he is really enjoying himself.  My dgs who is just a bit older learned to sew when he was the same age.
