Quilters love to share their love of quilting with others and teach them how to piece quilts. I made my first quilt when I was nine years old, so it was appropriate that my granddaughter do the same. I handed her two sets of five inch squares, otherwise known as charm packs, and let her go to town sewing them together. Of course, in typical quilter fashion, she and I didn’t get it quilted until she was here for New Year’s Day and she is now eleven. My husband does all the quilt loading, so he showed her how to load her quilt on the quilting machine. She is donating her quilt to the West Houston Quilter’s Guild to be forwarded on to Project Linus so that a sick child will receive it. Our quilt guild has been a major supporter of Project Linus for many years. West Houston Quilter’s Guild also gives quilts to nursing home patients every year around Christmas time, so I used my New Year’s weekend to quilt and bind a couple of quilts for that as well. Tomorrow, it’s back to work on customer t-shirt quilts. I’ve already received orders for graduation quilts, so if you want one for your senior, let me know.
