Auntie Camp.....Auntie Style

Auntie Camp is long over and I have finally recovered. It seems I'm not 25 anymore. Here is Cheergirl learning to quilt. Yes, she is capable of matching clothing as well as a quilt! For some reason she is wearing her pj top with her shorts!! LOL. I let her loose on my 5" squares and she assembled, arranged and sewed.

I set her machine up across from me so this was the view from my sewing machine.

Her first seam!!

The final quilt. It is finished and bound. I am delivering it to her this weekend. I am off to visit with my family. Next post...the quilting on this quilt. I had a ball just trying out different quilting techniques.

I think it is so important to get kids sewing and quilting. I find it sad that so many quilters are grandmothers and so few are granddaughters. Good for you for passing it on.

The quilt looks great!! I swear I have tried to teach Cheergirl to match her tops to her bottoms!!! Well it makes for a priceless picture!

I love Cheergirl's outfit! Comfort first and foremost. :) And from the looks of her quilt, she is fabulous with color.

I have taught each of my 3 older granddaughters to use the machine, let them pick fabric and sew with supervision. Seeing this makes my heart sing. Thanks for sharing.

Whoops, Ian's comment was my comment. I forgot DGS was using the computer. :)

What a wonderful job she did! It looks like aunty camp was an overwhelming success. Not only did you make a quilt, but that was truly making a wonderful memory.
