This is a special blog from Jean Wells sharing her granddaughter's first quilt she ever pieced, and quilted herself!
When my granddaughters turn eight then I help them to design and make a quilt. Violette had her birthday in July right after quilt show and we started her quilt in the fall.
She wanted to have a "diamond" shape for her quilt. (Working on Meme's messy table.)
Annette suggested she long arm quilt it and she was excited. (I have never tried long arm quilting myself.) Annette set up a box on the floor for her to stand on and they loaded it on the machine. (She sent ViVi home to practice drawing designs for her quilt.) She was so excited to run this machine.
We are so proud of Violette! Its not easy to piece your first quilt, but to even quilt it herself is amazing!
Here is to future quilters all over!
