I feel passing on the love of quilting to future generations is a must. I never turn down a request from a child to learn how to sew. Emily is my great niece and the second child I had the privilege of teaching. She had to stand up to sew her first quilts because her legs did not reach the pedal of the machine if she was sitting down. We improvised and by age 8 had already six quilts done and gifted to people she loved.
I got talked into giving a hand quilting class at a sewing shop. The quilt was small and so was the class, but we had fun. The resulting quilt found it's way into a box and got mailed to Massachusettes to my great neice, Emily. Apparently I touched a tender spot in the little girl as you shall see in the next quilt in the gallery.
