Quilting Fun

Cutting the batting a bit larger than the quilt top.

Anna is concentrating on cutting the cotton batting to match the shape of her special quilt. This is the second summer she has quilted with me. Last week, she started out making a strip quilted piece. However, with her very creative spirit; the idea evolved into a house shaped piece. Because of her choices of jungle prints and animal skin print in the fabrics, she has appropriately entitled it the "Jungle House Quilt".  I think it turned out to be an awesome piece!

Anna gained proficiency with ironing this summer!

Oh how cute...I love the colors she used. Knowing how to use that iron is very important. Tell her congraduations. Thinking about it I don't even think my daughter that is almost twenty two knows how to operate an iron! LOL
