Well, maybe it would be better to call it "pre-quilting." First of all, we sat and looked at this book. Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts by Kaffe Fassett. By the way, this is a beautiful book, not just for quilters. It would seriously make a great coffee table book. We looked at lots of pretty, colorful photos. I was looking for an idea for a new quilt.
After that we went into my bedroom where my tumbling block quilt is on the rack. We sat down, GranddaugherStitches on my lap, and I showed here some things about quilting.
I let her wear my spare thimble, and I showed her how to take quilting stitches. Not sure how much of it sank in, or exactly how soon this four-year-old will take up quilting, but we had a good time.
But then she saw something that really did interest her--polka dots! So we played a little bit of I Spy, and found even more polka dots.
And we found some baseballs, too!
Not a huge start, I admit. Still, a start of sorts.
