I think i might be in for it. This is Avery designing a quilt. I would say her first but she has been awfully helpful on my last few and she has already sewn one of her own. Anyway...she came to me one night and asked for a piece of graph paper like i used for making quilt patterns. I gave first and asked second.
She explained that she wanted to make a plan for another quilt. When i went to the table to check on her she was already writing out instructions, size specifications and was well along in drawing the picture of what she wanted it to look like.
Now I have the bonus challenge of making another quilt on top of the 4(or8) that i already have in the works. Also if you look carefully at her design you will see circles on top of squares...oh no...i am deathly afraid of applique. It is the vast unknown of quilting for me. Otherwise it is a pretty uncomplicated affair. She has particular color instructions, brown and pink. SO we raided the mommy stash and have found some acceptable fabrics....now the pressure is on!!!
It is like a two edged sword...i am thrilled that she is enjoying what i do, but so worried about making it work for her.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
