Finished Her First Quilt

    Cierra started sewing early this morning on her blocks.  When she began to sew the strip set that would make her 12th block, she decided to make her quilt a little smaller than we originally planned.  Remember, this is the first time she has used a sewing machine.  She sewed the whole top together.  We made the sandwich.
Then I started looking to decide how it would be easiest for her to quilt using the walking foot.  I decided on simple diagonal lines.  Cierra used a water soluble marker to mark stitching lines. 
She did all the quilting.  After helping her to square it up,  I machine sewed on the binding and she added a label. She did an amazing job!
