I mentioned a few days ago that Hunter, my 5yr old son, wanted to make a quilt. This really excited me since he is such a "Daddy's Boy" and he thinks that Mommy is boring. So the other day I let him practice on this little machine that I picked up at a thrift store for a couple of bucks. It has a slow speed so it is perfect for him.
I found some "Tony Stewart" fabric today while going through my stuff and I cut it up into 9 inch squares. I also cut some 9 inch solid orange squares for him to sew with it.
I actually figured that he would quit after a block or two, because he is sooooooo hyper and doesn't sit still for very long, but he loved it. I had to make him stop because I only cut out part of it. He ended up sewing 3 rows tonight! My plans are, after he gets the top sewn together, then I will let him tie it, instead of machine quilting it. That way he can say that he did it all himself.
There is no school again tomorrow, due to the weather, so he willl probably finish his top tomorrow. I will keep you posted.
