Quilting with Grand Kids

This past weekend I was fortunate to have my grandson Mikia over for the whole weekend. This doesn't happen very often and the last time was mid summer. Mikia is 9 and in 4th grade. He asked to make a small quilt for his little brother who is about 1 yr old. I cut 5 inch blocks for him and pinned while he sewed blocks and borders. After he was finished, and had more than enough
sewing time, I machine quilted the top as he played video games. The prints were fun and funky and the pattern was easy enough to go quickly so he wasn't bored to quickly. I'm proud of him for sticking with this until it was finished.
This was his first quilt. Good job guy!
