Quilting with my granddaughter

My seven-year-old granddaughter wanted to make a cushion for her bed, so she spent today with me. She'd already picked out the colors she wanted, and I pulled fabrics from my stash and cut them from the layout I'd done in EQ7 (for the Mac!) so we'd be sure to finish in the one day. She requested yellow and white, and we added some purple, her favorite color. She pieced the log cabin variation sitting with me in the chair for supervision, and then she had fun with the walking foot for the quilting. The addition of an overlapped back made the quilt into a cushion cover.

Here's my happy granddaughter with her accomplishment. She loves my Bernina! ;)

    1. We did have fun — and she insisted that we go to the quilt shop to show off what she'd done. :)

    1. Thanks, Marcella!! I should have mentioned in my post that this was her second project, since she made a doll quilt just over a year ago. Here's the link to that: http://www.sandywf.blogspot.com/2013/06/her-first-quilt-is-finished.html. Both times have been fun, and my granddaughter is already asking about making a quilt for her Barbie dolls. LOL!
