Summer Project #2 With Kylie: Day 1
|Here are some of her squares.|
|Tracing on the back of the fabric. I bought her a couple 1/4 yards for her birthday and she grabbed a few more colors from my scraps.|
|Her squares look great and are ready for her to cut them out.|
|She is using larger kid scissors for cutting fabric. She is a mature 6 year old. :)|
|She is so excited to start sewing some squares together. I had her lay them all out first they way she wanted the quilt to look. It is going to be 5 squares x 4 squares. So she cut out 20 4 inch squares.|
|Rows are made and now she has to put the rows back together.|
|The pins are in and it is time to sew the rows together.|
We put together the rows and then it was dinner time and Jacob woke up. So the rest will have to wait till our next free moment.
Today Kylie had to do a little more cutting. She first cut out the back fabric for her doll quilt. Then I ironed the top and the back for her.
|Cutting out the back fabric.|
|Then she had to cut out the batting. Her doll Madison is watching too.|
|Then we sandwiched the back, batting, and top together. I got our safety pins out and she was able to put one in correctly. I did the rest for her.|
|The more safety pins the better when quilting!|
|I quilted it for her with my quilting foot. I also put a satin binding on it too. This part of the quilt making process will come when she is a little older.|
|A happy girl!|
|Fits her doll bed perfectly too and Madison is ready for bed!|
I am not sure what her next project is going to be, but her little sister is begging her to make her baby doll a pillow and blanket too.
