The designer's squares sewn

     From a past post, I wrote about my granddaughter's quilt design and how she said she only designs quilts, not sew them. So I sewed all the squares and showed it to her. She said, "I knew it would look like that." How come she gets it at five when sometimes I struggle to see how it will come out? 
Because of the star, I sewed each section in a web in three sections, columns first, then the rows. Then I sewed the long seams connecting the sections.

The sunlight was coming through the fence, so it looks a bit odd

Remember, kids are usually easier to please. We tend to be more picky. The quilt turned out nice.

LOVE her design (AND the fact that you sewed it up for her!!)

Great job on the sewing too! It is so pretty. She is a designer who has not been tainted by the quilt police:)

Love her matter of fact-ness. I suspect life has chased that out of the rest of us and replaced it with second-guessing.

Bet your grand-designer-daughter will WANT TO try out a machine some time soon. I couldn't wait for my mom to PERMIT me to use her only machine ( a featherweight). One day I saw 2 girls on my block making doll clothes AND they were using a machine! I ran home with the, "if THEY can do it why not ME???" demand. And it worked - she taught me that very day. I was SO PROUD and still LOVE to sew. (cutting all those blocks of fabric is the task I wish someone else would do).
