Helping My Niece

First off, "Happy Thanksgiving" to everyone celebrating in the United States.  And I hope everyone else still has a very happy day! 
  

As I mentioned in my last post, my niece is visiting for Thanksgiving.  While here she wanted to make her second quilt.  She picked out all the fabrics, and we cut them into five inch squares together. (I added a few fat quarters from my stash so she would have enough fabric.)  Then she laid them out and sewed them together with my mother-in-law (Nana) helping with the ironing. 

Then they came over to my house and we tied it together in my basement.  She did a fantastic job putting the quilt together. 


After it was tied...


I added the binding for her to complete the quilt. 


We had so much fun together.  I love helping and teaching others to quilt.  And while this was her second quilt, it was much bigger than her first.  It finishes at about 68 x 86 inches.  So now she has two quilts to take home in her luggage.  What a sweety. 

XX,
Jasmine

  1. How awesome, Jasmine! Having someone to talk to and help iron is the *best* way to quilt.

  4. What a great team you all made in making this quilt. Keep on passing it on Jasmine! You might have to go buy her another suitcase to take it all home in, LOL

  10. (sorry if this double posts my first one didn't seem to go through!) I'm alway sso jelous around the holidays of the familys quilting together. I'm the first in my line of the family who quilts but I do try to get my non-quilty friends and family together once a year to do a quilting project and share my love of quilting. You ladies did a lovely job finishing off that beautiful quilt.
