A First Art Quilt

My sister Sue has been visiting from Indiana with her 10-year old granddaughter Lexus. When Lexus saw my studio, she wanted to make something so I helped her make an art quilt.

We picked out fabrics, cut, and fused.
She has never done any sewing before 
so I showed her how to sew on my machine. 
She took off with it and did a great job!

She sewed all the zigzag stitches around the 
butterfly and to close the edges of the quilt!
She also did the orange trails below 
the butterfly using a decorative stitch.

She named it Colorful Donna 
because I helped her with it. 
How sweet!
I loved every minute of it, 
and she did too, especially the sewing.
Even my sister Sue enjoyed the process. Perhaps they'll take a likin' to it sometime in the future and pursue it. It sure would be nice to have some family interested in art quilting even if they do live all the way up in Indiana. 
Or interested in art journaling. 
Or mixed media. 
Or, or, or!

Tootles All,
