Mother & Daughter Summer Sew-In!

Oliver + S Charm PackMy boys are attending tennis camp this week so I thought I’d have a little quilt camp with my daughter while they are gone. Jenna has been wanting to make a quilt so I let her pick her out any charm pack she wanted to make a quilt. I thought that would be pretty simple since the squares are already cut. She chose City Weekend by Oliver + S because it had lots of pink along with fun pastel Sewing the Squarescolors.

We actually got quite a bit done in just an hour of sewing this morning.

Strip of SquaresQuilt LayoutFirst we practiced with a few scraps so that she could get comfortable guiding the fabric. I worked the pedal while she sat on my lap. She was “sew” proud of her first finished strip! She wanted to lay out all the squares and sew them in just the right order. It’s nice to have someone who shares my passion for sewing!

    It’s so great to teach your daughter to sew … something she will never forget! I did this with my grand-daughter only we used a layer cake and I let her do most of the quilting on my big machine. Check it out when you have time (she was having a very bad hair day).
