Caitlyn's finished project

The learning process was a success. Here is proof that Caitlyn made the quilt- assisted by me, Gramma Jackie. It is beautiful She also learned to finish the binding-by hand- not machine. She never once complained that something was 'too hard' or 'too boring'. It was a pleasure to work with her this last week.

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.

Granddaughters learn to sew- Part 1

Sew busy Sewing.... The legacy, hopefully, will be passed on. At least 2 girls are enjoying the art of piecing fabric together.
This is Tori Burt, at this time she lives in Oklahoma. I was recently there for a visit and she helped me finish the quilt I designed and made for her.

This is the final product
