Several weeks ago, my granddaughter asked me to teach her how to make a quilt, and I told her we'd better wait until school was over for the summer, since she and her family are always pretty busy. Today was the day! I got out graph paper for her to practice sewing straight lines, which she did much better than I'd expected — and with much less practice. :) Then we selected fabrics for the doll quilt she wanted to make; it's all in pinks to coordinate with the bed. I'd thought we'd make a Rail Fence quilt with three "logs" in each block, but DGD had a tough time deciding among four she liked, so we finally went with all four fabrics, arranging them to her taste.
