Doesn't get any better than this...

This summer we are taking a family vacation to Southern California and will be visiting an orphanage in Mexico, delivering quilts to each of the children living there. Today our granddaughter decided she wanted to make her first quilt...the icing on the cake for her is that she will be able to hand it to a precious child herself. So today she worked hard and from start to finish (with the exception of the zoom lines, which I did for her) she made her first quilt. I am so proud of her...and she is rightfully proud of herself. This was her first time using a sewing machine. She couldn't wait to show Grandpa, he did and said all the right things...what a pair these 2 are!
Tada....KatieBug and her very first quilt. As soon as the label was on she wanted to know if we could start another one...at 8:30 p.m.!!!

Pam, the picture of Katie holding her quilt with the big grin says it all. And quilt husband of the day award goes to Gpa doing saying all the right things to encourage her---the typical of "another quilt" or"that's nice" would not have cut it. Congrats to both you and Katie for sharing this opportunity to help others.
