Fabric Flower Quilt

When my eleven year old was six years old I read her The Keeping Quilt by Patricia Polacco. In the story a family quilt was made from old clothes and used on many special occasions. My daughter was hooked! Not long after she sewed her first quilt, and her second and her third. She has only stopped quilting to do some occasional knitting and and other crafting.

This is her latest masterpiece. It contains 108 fabric flowers and I'm completely amazed she finished this project.

Not only does she like to quilt, but she insists on doing almost all the work by hand. After moving to Germany we bought a cheap sewing machine that didn't work very well until my friend adjusted it for us. Rather than deal with a stubborn machine, she prefers to listen to audio stories and sew.

The Keeping Quilt is a wonderful story, and I would highly recommend reading it and doing a small quilting project.

  4. It is beautiful. How lovely to have acquired such fine skills at such a young age. What does your daughter do with her quilts once they're finished? I'm going to check out the book, thank you.
