I am loving this design, because it is really teaching Jessi how to use her rulers for measuring!!! She has pretty much made basic patchwork quilts, which I have helped her cut in the past. But this tutorial and it's fun improv nature, really lets Jessi play with measurements and change them up. Rather than just having her place the ruler down and cut, I ask her how much she wants to cut off (1 1/2", 2", 2 3/4" ect. ) and then have her find the measurement and line up the ruler accordingly. So fantastic!!!! I helped her with the first 2 sets of blocks, and I was so excited to go downstairs this morning and see her working on her next set all on her own!!!
And she has 3 sets done and is feeling pretty confident that she can independently sew on these!! And she keeps telling me how much fun these blocks are which of course, makes me just smile from ear to ear!!! I am headed to Bryce Canyon for a Trunk Show today and she told me she is going to sew while I am gone because in her words "I've got this mom!!!!" I can't wait to see what kind of progress she makes while I am gone!!!
School is out next week and this girl let me know this morning that she has some serious plans for sewing together all summer. I can't wait!!!
Way to go, Jessi! I agree--you've totally got this :)ReplyDelete
