I had a special guest for FNSI last night. My 9 yr old daughter joined me for some quilting fun. I ironed and cut the fabrics during the day while she was at school and we were able to get all 9 of her blocks made before supper.
Here she is working hard. She was using a fat quarter bundle that she picked from JoAnn's.
Concentrating on keeping her 1/4 seam allowance.
Here she is this morning with the finished quilt top, basted and ready to be quilted. If she's willing, she can help do some of the basic stitch-in-the-ditch quilting and then I will do any other quilting that she wants done.
This fabric is so her and the finished quilt will hang in her room. Will finish at 35 inches square.
Here's what I did last night. My daughter helped piece the 4 patch squares for this quilt.
I think the dancing skeletons in the border make this quilt. It will finish at 31 inches square.
Here is my quilt using the same block my daughter used. I had drafted a block using 6 fat quarters than yesterday morning realized she only had 5. I made up a new block with 4 variations. I made my blocks while she was at school and determined that the blocks were easy enough for her.
Close up of my fabrics. This quilt still needs a border. Since all 3 of these quilts are relatively small, I hope to get them all done by Tuesday. My fabrics were also from JoAnn's.
Head over to Bobbi's blog this month to see what everyone else was up to last night.
