Three nights ago, my youngest son and I finally began working on his quilt. (I'm making him the Varsity quilt from Jaybird Quilts) As he is a great participant in the kitchen, I figured he could learn how to cut fabric for his own quilt.
It wasn't half as trying as I thought it might be - or take as long.
A success overall: No cuts (a 14 year old with a rotary cutter makes me nervous) and now he knows how to place fabric on a cutting mat, line up a ruler and correctly place his hands. Well, at least I hope so.
Two nights of cutting produced this:
He doesn't know that I began sewing yesterday and have all of the large pieces sewn together.
Next up is ironing, and sewing the "V"'s together into the seven rows for his quilt. Will I teach him how to iron? Maybe when he's 15.
I'm linking up with Lee of Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. She's off to Sewing Summit in Utah - happy for all of you lucky gals (like Debbie!) whom are going.
Off to school for me!
