Natty's First Quilt

For Natty's 8th birthday in November, her Sunday school teacher gave her a gift that was perfect for a budding seamstress : a package of beautiful quilting material.

Natty was so excited and could hardly wait to get started. She decided  to make a quilt for her doll.  :)

So she started cutting the squares (with a little help from Mom)....

 Then she sewed the squares together....

Next, she measured the batting to the front and back of the quilt....

After trimming the batting, she sewed the borders....

And finally, a quilting stitch along the seams for the finishing touch....

 The back of the quilt.....

And the front....

                                            It turned out beautifully!!

And last but certainly not least, I'm including a photo of Mimi, who, in the midst of all the quilting, just had to take a turn on Natty's sewing machine.  And she did really well!  :)

We had so much fun together. And we made memories. Memories that will hopefully last a lifetime.
Memories that will be recalled every time Natty looks at her quilt.  :)

"..she.. works willingly with her hands."  Proverbs 31:13

Have a blessed day,  friends!
