Yesterday the munchkin expressed a desire to make a quilt for the little turkey with her grandma. My mother-in-law is in town taking care of me and the kiddos for a little bit, and we’ll use grandma in every way possible while she’s here!
So, we let my 4-year-old browse my fabric (although there were several options I had to say no to!) and she settled on a print from Sheri Berry Holiday, from ages ago, that I had in my stash. I pulled out the rest of the collection that I had, and cut them into squares. Then, she and grandma sat on the floor and arranged those squares nicely, and I sewed them together. This morning, the munchkin and I sat at my machine and she helped me free-motion some flowers into the quilt before she got too bored, and we just finished it up.
She is excited to wrap it and put it under the tree for the new baby. Considering it will be the only gift for her under the tree… I mean, what do you get a one-month-old for Christmas??
Now, since we did this quilt in record time, it isn’t perfect. Luckily a few throws in the wash will help disguise all its blemishes :). I was amazed how fast quilting can be done, however, when you make a small quilt with a very simple design! I need more like that…
