This week my sewing machine was little busy. Last month, soon after turning 8, my son asked me if he could work on some summer project with my sewing machine. I was very glad, thinking that I could get rid off a bundle of half yard fabrics I bought 2 years ago at Joann. So I gave him the option of making a quilt for his play area or a tote bag. I was very glad that he picked a quilt. He selected the fabrics. I helped with cutting, pinning and pressing.
But it was hard to refrain myself from suggesting when he was deciding the lay out :-). It feels very uneasy when they leave same colors nearby. But I definitely did a good job in that area (after he reminded that its his project!!!!) ;-). Here is the finished quilt top.
We are having a hard time on picking the background fabric. He has eye on my butterfly fabric and I was holding on to that to use for my new Quilt Along project. But I think I have to give-in. Let him enjoy his summer project after all!!!!!
I will soon update with his completed quilt. I am definitely planning to practice my newly learnt free motion skills on it.
Also, I have these beautiful flowers in my garden.
This was planted by the previous home owner. But they look so beautiful. I am very curious to know the name of this flower. If any of you know what it is I REQUEST you to leave the comment with its name.
Thank you for stopping by. You have a great weekend 🙂
