The kids camp idea lives on, and I am happy to be teaching a Sew Fun Kids Class once a month in Danville.
Last week we made hand-sewn pincushions and three-color tote bags – sorry I forgot to take photos!
One of my darling students shared a quilt that she had just finished, and just look at it!
Summit had attended my Dream Chair Quilts class in March, and at eight years old, she was the youngest student in the class by three decades! She worked fast and decidedly and really needed very little help. She just cut and glued and sewed and was as determined as can be!
She had chosen all of the pink French fabric and the chair went together quickly. She and I worked together to choose the green border and the lime shadow. She had the whole quilt top finished by the end of the day.
With help and guidance from her grandmother, Summit added some really fun embellishments to the quilt, including sequined trim around the border and the chair.
I didn’t make my first quilt until I was ten years old, so Summit really has made an early start on her quilting career. With her style, focus, and talent we are going to see great things from this wonderful girl.
