Cait is the darling 12 year old who lives across the street from me.
She comes over every Friday for sewing lessons.
Each time she learns a new block technique.
Cait chose these Fabulous Fifties prints to work with.
She completed all of her blocks so we put them together to make one
fabulous granny chic quilt!
A quilt is more valuable if it is labeled with a name and date so I added this square as a keepsake piece. Since this entire quilt is machine sewn it is bound to endure many many years of use.
I so adore Cait!
As a Christmas surprise I decided to hurry and sandwich and stiple her quilt.
This little hourglass square didn't make the cut for the front. I thought it would be a cute subtle touch to add to the back.
She'll be suprised to see that it's in the quilt afterall :-)
Cait used to come over and just watch me sew day after day. I don't normally teach sewing lessons but how could I resist? She has been such a fun student!
I can't wait to wrap up her finished quilt and give it to her for Christmas!
