First Finished Projects

Last night and into the wee hours of the morning i finished sewing a binding on Avery's first quilting project. A little while back i showed the top after she had sewn it all together. She went on to choose what kind of quilting we would do, and what fabric we would use for the backing and binding. I think she did a really great job with all the sewing and quilting. She was so proud to make it and give it to her friend that is moving soon. She has a great eye for the color, i am very proud of her.

Well done, Avery! Your quilt is beautiful... but how bittersweet that it is for a friend who is moving away... you sure have known quite a few of those, sweet thing.

She did a great job! Congrats. You will cherish it for years. I made my first one in the 3/4th grade and we still use it!
