For the sad reason of my 92 year old mother’s passing, I had a lot of family visit the past few days. I got to spend some very special time with my 5 year old granddaughter, Mattie. She watched as I pieced rectangles together on my grandmother’s treadle machine. Mattie picked out some fabric pieces for me. She also helped pedal the treadle. Today she had the idea to make the blocks we pieced into a quilt. She picked out a few more rectangles so that the top measured about 12” by 16”. I used fusible fleece for the batting and sewed the backing on pillowcase method so today Mattie could take home the “fastest little quilt ever made”.
Mattie loves to do projects and crafts so in a few years I look forward to her spending some summer vacation time with me for us to make many special things.
