These two grandsons love to sew! I think they just like power machines that they are allowed to use. Someday the saws and drills will be better than the sewing machine. Almost every time they come, they ask to sew. We have made quilts and they are just about done with a donation quilt but we had to stop and make a very special quilt.
Their grandpa on the other side of the family is ill with cancer. I thought we should make him a quilt and they totally agreed. I did some prep work and we accomplished a lot in one day last week. (notice the top picture) They sewed most of the day. They took a couple of breaks and then wanted to sew more. Their Grandpa's birthday gathering was Saturday and they wanted to give him the quilt then.
They both use the sewing machine - the younger one with help. The older one also uses the rotary cutter WITH the glove and supervision. They both use the iron with supervision - I think the older one understands pressing better though. Their work was amazing - their 1/4" seams were almost perfect!
It has green flannel on the back.
I stitched in a little love.
I'm sure Grandpa Mike will be able to feel the love in this quilt and I hope it gives him much comfort knowing two of his grandsons made it especially for him.
