GranddaughterStitches was visiting this summer (oh, we had so much fun!) and one day I asked her if she would like to make a quilt. Boy, was she excited about that!
So I gave her 20 5" squares and told her to arrange them however she wanted to on my design wall. Below is the result.
|These squares came from the Bear Patch Bits Club at Bear Patch Quilt Company.|
Then I sewed them all together for her. I think she really liked the result.
We both worked on sandwiching the quilt. She worked hard on it, and did a good job. One safety pin in the middle of each square.
Basting all completed!
Here is a photo of GranddaughterStitches with her completed quilt. She was very happy to have a quilt for her doll. (You can also see the potholder she wove. That was another fun thing to do.)
Don't you just love the backing fabric she chose? Very pretty.
I told her that every quilt needed to have a label, but every label doesn't need to be square on the back of the quilt.

Pretty good for her first quilt, don't you think?!? I'm sure she and I will make more. It's a lot of fun to sew with GranddaughterStitches.
