I am amazed at quilters. Its such a feat and alittle daunting at first. A whole twin size quilt? I can't even imagine a queen size, but people do it. Alot of people.
It came together little by little and much faster than I anticipated. I used the pattern by Rae from windham fabrics but made the quilt bigger with more rows. We picked out all the fabric together. Serious fun. Picking out fabric with your 8 year old.
I tried my hand at free motion quilting too. The lady on youtube makes it seem much easier than it is. Just so you know. I got the hang of it at the end. So part of the quilting looks great!
She is thrilled and thats all that matters. Eight is great!
