The Making of a Maverick Quilter

Darling Granddaughter, Taylor, age 6, spent the night with us last night. She has developed a fasination with my scrap basket. Oh Yeah! another fabric loving granddaughter. That makes 3 out of 3 and that makes me happy.

We got out some fusible web and made a nice background. More fusible pressed to some scraps and started cutting out shapes. Then she placed them where she wanted them and we pressed them down. Well that wasn't enough so we turned it over and added a few more pieces to the back. I think this girl is ready to learn to use the machine and start something for her baby dolls.

After the photo, we pinned it on the wall. Everytime I looked at it, I couldn't help but feel all giggly inside. We had so much fun! Now it's with her and had a place on her wall.

I haven't had much time to sew in the last 2 weeks. I did spend some time last week working on more floral 9 patches for my swap and on Monday I had to get my flannel strips ready to mail off for another swap. I swore I wasn't going to participate in any swaps this year. The first 2 that are announced, here I am jumping up and down with my hand in the air, "Me, Me, Me, pick ME!"

Now it's time for jammies, hot chocolate and a look through 2 new quilt magazines. Today I got all my errands taken care of because tomorrow, I SEW!

What a proud young lady as she should be. It must be fun to share your interest and fabric with your grandchildren. Elliot is a beatiful baby. Enjoy the kids.

My great niece is getting to be such a big girl! And what a pretty little piece she made! Tell her that she needs to make her aunty SuSue one :)
