When I asked my daughter what her plans were, she said she wanted to make a quilt. I told her it was going to be a mighty small quilt, since she didn’t have much to work with. When we got home, she immediately started looking through my fabric stash. I’m really not a pink person, so there were absolutely no pink fabrics for her to add to the mix. Then she spotted a big stack of white fabric. She pulled it off the shelf and I told her that it reminded me of the “modern quilts” I had been seeing lately. She asked what I meant, so I sketched her a picture.
Between our two visions and my daughter’s sewing, this sweet little modern quilt was born. Another trip to the fabric store resulted in the backing (and some really cute green binding). We’re going to try a little free motion quilting on this, just for fun. Honestly, I don’t have high expectations when it comes to our ability with free motion, but we’ll give it a shot.
I’m just impressed that an 8 year old, with a mini pile of fabric, can make something so adorable!
