She Has Finished It!!!!



Emily has completely finished her first quilt. She finished quilting it several weeks back and it only lacked a binding. So Tuesday we decided to pull it out and finish it up. First she basted the raw edges. Then she attached the binding to the front side of the quilt.





Then we wrapped the binding around to the back and stitched in the ditch so that the stitching would catch the binding in the back. She is so comfortable and precise with the machine that it amazes me. I did all the cutting and pinning....and she did ALL the stitching. Yes, she put EVERY stitch in this fantastic quilt.




She is so proud of herself....as she very well should be!!! I am super proud of her. She told me last night...."Now I see why you like to sew and quilt so much." Bingo!!! She gets it!!!




She is already planning her next sewing project. She said she wants to make some doll clothes. As soon as she determines the details....she'll be off and sewing again. I am looking forward to it!!!

Super job Emily. I knew you could do it. Good thing you have a mom who sews. It makes your life a whole lot easier.

Hi Susan! thanks for posting on my blog . . . .looks like we have a lot in common! I have also been writing up some tutorials and a few eBooks using my sewing skills that I've learned over many years of trial and error. My girls love to work on fabric, too, and when they are just a bit older I think I will teach them to do a simple quilt. I've been thinking of doing an eBook with simple sewing projects for children . . . . perhaps you would like to contribute one of your projects? Something to think about! Hope to see you again soon, Nina mamas*little*treasures

Great job, Miss Emily - your quilt is beautiful!
