Design Wall & Creative Munchkin

Can I first say that I'm sick of cold and snow and I'm really ready for spring.

With that said here are a couple pictures of Grace. Since she hasn't been to school this week and has decided to get creative with fabric. I helped with the sewing but she did all the fabric picking and arranging, etc. and created her own little quilt top.

Creative Munchkin


The thread kept breaking so we didn't get very far tonight. I think it's probably because she's moving the machine so slllllooooooowwwww and I turned the speed down. I think when we go back at it tomorrow I will turn the speed up a bit. Crazy thing is, she gets it. She made a flower on one of the first blocks. I asked what she was doing and she said Well making a flower of course. Such attitude.  :-)

On the design wall is another t-shirt quilt, which I will spare you pictures of. I'm working on a "I Spy" top. I used my Go cutter hexagon and triangle dies. So have I mentioned that I LOVE my Go cutter? I love working with the shapes that I wouldn't normally cut myself. Hexagons definitely on that list.

I Spy

The top has grown since I took the picture.  The hexagons are cut from 6" blocks that I cut from the remains of other baby quilts and just threw in a box. That's a perfect size to put on the die and not have a lot of waste.

School has been cancelled already for tomorrow.  I suspect we will finish quilting a quilt top and have pictures to show.

Have a great night.

It's great that your daughter seems to love something you love, too. I predict many years of fun quilting together! And your hexagons are great. I have made 6 hexagon I Spy quilts and they are really fun. The red star points are super.
