Granddaughters learn to sew- Part 2

This week we have Caitlyn Cassille- Bill's granddaughter visiting us from North Andover, Mass. She asked to learn to sew. Last saturday we went to the quilt store and chose the fabrics. Our first project was a simple Pillowcase. We did it in one evening. Even the seams were straight.

Great job Caitlyn. Now on to the hard stuff, which she learned quickly. On Monday we started the cutting and sewing of this quilt top. It is a 'railfence' pattern, and a good design for a beginning sewer/quilter. Well yesterday I worked and was gone, she got to the machine and by the time I got home she had almost the whole top finished. I am sure that by this afternoon, she will have completed it. Then we will put the layers together and quilt it, and apply the binding in time for her to take it home with her.


  1. WOW!!!! Wish I had that much time to sew, maybe my projects we started would be completed. That is great she is doing so well and enjoying it. Can't wait to see it all done!
