After the monster scooter bag, she was still raring to go, so not having another project up my sleeve I decided to teach her (huh-herm.....said loosely as I had never done it either!!!) to Quilt-As-You-Go!
We took our inspiration from Little Island Quilting and the Soy Amado Project, if you don't know anything about it, PLEASE hop over and take a look, quilt 51 has just been finished!
We started with a square of quilt batting and a pile of odd strips of fabric chosen by Little Lady from my stash.....
we laid two together and away she went following the foot down the edge of the fabric strips...Mummy was at the ready with the iron.....
And that was it! I ironed them flat, she chose the next one and laid it on the top, pinned and whizzed!
Done in no time at all!
Here she is with her finished square. She had a rest before she quilted it during which time I discovered a little hole which I repaired.
She then went on to quilt it using this on the back....
(Proud Mummy Moment!)
And here she is with the beautifully quilted front........
We are hoping to send it to the Soy Amado Project....have you made one yet?
Don't know what I'll be back with next time as I am aware that Little Lady has made another project from the sewing book, I promised you a garden update, we have a holiday to remember and...er......well.... some (cough) ......purchases! Ooops!
See you soon!
