My daughter's sunday school teacher just had her first baby, and the girls wanted to do something for her, so I made a quilt top and the girls got together and tied it.
I think it turned out so cute, and it is so soft and cuddly. Plus, the girls had such a fun time together tying it, they wanted to do another one right away. (I do think it could use a few more ties, maybe on the corners, the fabric/batting shifts a little...not terribly though.)
It almost feels like tying quilts has become a lost art. You don't see it much anymore...or maybe it's just because I don't do it anymore.
It was so fun to listen to the girls chatter away as they tied each thread. Nine year old girls are a very chattery bunch.
We didn't even use a frame for for this, I don't have one and it was small enough that I basted the quilt and sewed the binding on it, then had the girls tie it. It worked out great.
I very happily used all fabric from my scraps and stash. I should be doing more of these. I love these squares.
