First off, Ella selected her fabrics from my stash of "leftovers" from my previous projects. She selected quite a nice assortment, then proceeded to iron each piece. It was much easier once we lowered the board.
She laid the pieces out on the floor in the order she wanted and then proceeded stitching them together.
This is the first two pieces going together with great concentration. The white with pink swirls was used in the border of her pink polka dot quilt.
We took turns, sewing and ironing throughout the afternoon. She was very attentive when sewing the final strips together.
The size was determined by the smallest strip, which was one of the Olaf fabrics and it's not quite large enough to use as a quilt, so Aunt Paula spent tomorrow helping her add a couple of 4" borders and completing the binding.
It was a group project, made with lots of love.
Well done, Ella! and thanks to Aunt Paula for all her help! Hopefully, it will be the first of many sewing/quilting projects for Ella ;o)
Thanks for stopping by...
