Quilting with my niece

My 10-year-old niece is at work on her own quilt. The one I made her years ago is just too short! She’s making a rail fence in yellows and browns. She gets better and better at cutting and sewing as we go along. I’m now the presser, so I actually have something to do while she sews.

Instead of cutting all the strips first and then sewing strips and blocks, she’s cutting eight strips at a time and then making enough blocks to make a row. That way, she can see her progress. She’s already planning overnights once school starts so she can work on her quilt. Stay tuned….

    I can see from the photo your neice is correctly using the most important sewing technique: holding your tongue just so!
    My mother, who was a great seamstress from the age of 7 and later a great quilter,taught me that critical action, and it has always helped me through times of difficult stitching.

    One of my sisters (not the mother of this niece) said she could tell by the tongue sticking out that we must be related. Wonder if it’s a quilter thing?
