Summer Sew Days

While DS1 was away on a gamecon trip, Danielle came for the weekend. We hid inside with the AC and sewed. I helped her piece her first quilt, a Three Rail Fence.

We worked in tandem, I layered the pieces to be sewn and she chained them together. It was a chance for her to learn to use the sewing machine and get used to the tools involved in piecing.

We put it on the design wall and decided to make more blocks.

Rotary cutting skills were learned too.

What a great way to spend time together, have fun and make a quilt. We took time out from the Rail Fence to spray baste a quilt I'm working on so she could see how that's done too. When she left the top was webbed and the first few rows sewn together. More pictures later.
