The other night I had a sewing buddy in my Hidey Hole!
My oldest daughter has Down Syndrome
and usually doesn't want much to do with my quilting.
Going to quilt shops is the worst for her
and often involves some kind of a bribe.
Her piano teacher has a birthday soon
and Doodlebug decided that she was going to make her teacher a
table runner for her birthday.
I had the perfect piece of fabric...
pretty design that would look great just quilted.
Out came the fabrics and batting,
I basted the pieces
and set Doodlebug in front of the sewing machine
with the walking foot in place and the speed on
She had a blast quilting this runner.
The lines are not precise at all,
but she is so proud of her accomplishment,
as she should be!
I sewed the binding on and it's ready to wrap.
Her teacher will be thrilled.
I'm continuing to play with the 2 1/2" squares I cut from my scrap pile
and have a baby quilt sewn together.
This top may be done.
I haven't decided if I will add a border or not.
I started to make a large quilt,
but decided I didn't need a large quilt right now.
I need baby quilts!
There's a population explosion going on in my world right now!
After cruising Pinterest,
I made these blocks with some of the squares and HST's.
Mr. Sunshine appeared just like this after the cutting was done.
How cool is that?
