Storm the Castle
Last week, I unexpectedly, or perhaps I should say expectedly spent a lot of time working on a quilt with my nephew over his March Break. It was fun to explain quilting lingo, techniques and to show him fabric as well as pick out a pattern. We decided on a pattern from Crazy Mom Quilts called Fair and Square, which was a good beginner one for him to start with. He sewed the green pieces to each of the blocks and then I sewed the rows together. I changed up the pattern due to the amount of background green fabric I had. I got it finished into a top on Sunday morning half an hour before he had to leave. He is anxious for it to become a quilt. He was also quite impressed that I have my own "website." I had posted some progress photos last week and he wanted to know all of the comments. I am linking to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF.
