Well, this morning I finally decided I was sick of looking at it laying on my scrapbooking table and asked her what she was going to do with it or did she just want me to finish it and be done with it? Nope. SHE was going to finish it!! I offered to show her how to use my new sewing machine..... *cringe*..... lol I turned the speed down, wound a bobbin and showed her what to do. She took off from there! She would stitch a seam and then go press (or "set" ) it. The whole time I'm just smiling and loving every minute of this! Yes, she had to tear out a few seams and wasn't happy about it but once she realized that you can't just slap it together and that you really had to take your time and line up the seams and keep your stitching consistant and even... she kept that momentum going and actually finished it!!! And it's BEAUTIFUL!!!
When we picked up the BOM packet we also got an extra blue & green FQ because the actual finished square was only 8 inches. The red printed fabric in the corners was from my stash but the red was a perfect match to the red square in the center. I should mention that the BOM packet had pieces for TWO 8 inch blocks so she made both and used them to make a pillow.
I think she did a fabulous job on this and I couldn't be more proud of her and her first quilting project! She just need to hand-stitch the bottom closed and it will completed!
Great Job, Stacie! You done a great job on this!
