Planting seeds of quilting!
I got this adorable picture and email from Michele N who’s toddler daughter is already showing signs of being a master quilter someday!
She’s been very observant watching mommy sew and quilt and knows just what to do!
Hi. On your QuiltCam one night you were talking about the younger generation learning to quilt.
My daughter is two now. Last November i had had my rotary cutter and rulers and stuff on the floor. My daughter went over to it and on her own tried "cutting" fabric.
I of course took away the cutter with a blade in it and gave her an empty one. But at that moment I was so proud of her. Her name is Emeline. And she loves fabric. I hope that continues for years. Thank you for letting me share.
How often do we start something so late in life that the learning curve just knocks us flat?
I have a friend who didn’t start piano lessons until well into his 40s. He is playing so well after 5 years that he regrets the time lost and wishes he had started earlier. But you know what? We start when we start. Wherever and whenever we start, it’s the right time to start!
This brings to mind another photo I posted on facebook the other day but has had me considering it since. It is SO IMPORTANT not to give up!
This applies to our quilting in oh, so many ways! Read it – read it all, read it more than once. Save the photo to remind yourself to not give up! It’s normal to take a while. While Emeline is getting a good early start, no matter where and when you started on this journey, every day, every project is one step forward in teaching you all you need to know.
“It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap. And your work will be as good as your ambitions.”
Quilt on, Everyone!
