The Next Generation Of Quilter

Kylee has been sewing a Easter table runner off and on for a few months.  She appliqued the eggs and flowers and sewed it all together with sashing and small outer border. We haven't had much time to work together on her sewing.

Finally she finished it and today I let HER  do the quilting using my long arm machine.

We set it up together, I started the first few stitches to show her how to meander, then let her do it on her own.  With just a few moments of guiding her hand with mine she picked it up pretty quickly.

She was pretty stiff as we all are the first time we grab those handles and begin, but before she finished she had manage to relax and get a more even fluid stitch.

She even echoed the flowers and then continued on with meandering.

With more practice I think she will someday soon be able to quilt one of her own quilts.
