    Getting the grandkids involved

    This past summer I got my twin grandsons started on quilting. Andy was gungho right from the start and finished his. Alex couldn't stay focused long enough to finish his, but we are working on it again while they are on break from school.

    Looks like they were working really hard. What nice quilts they made. What wonderful life skills they learned too. Congrats to Grandma too. You have given them some great memories.

      How wonderful! They will have special memories as well as the confidence to do it themselves.

        These boys and I have a beautiful relationship/bond. We have had many, many special moments. Anything that I do, they want to do.

            Love, love love this idea. My gk are just 1, 3, & 5 so it'll be a few years before we can sew together. Think how much you taught them! I am sure they were amazed at how many steps were involved and how many decisions you have to make along the way. And tell them great job guys!!

              I LOVE that you are working with your grandsons and teaching them the love of quilting. It's not for everyone, but Alex might just decide he likes it. Andy is doing an awesome job. I love sewing with my two granddaughters when we can. It's wonderful to spend the time with them, even if they don't really have an interest in what we are working on. Jelly Roll quilts and American Girl doll clothes is what we have worked on.

                Good for you... boys can learn a lot by doing something "hands on" like this...

                  How about making a junior JR quilt AG size? That would be fun!

                      I am very proud of my little guys. I don't get to see them very often because they don't live near me...but they are here all week. Loving every minute of them being here, along with their sister.

                        I love that idea. Might even use narrower strips!
