This morning a lady from church who lives three doors down asked me if I wanted some fabric... she's renovating her house and needed to get rid of stuff and if I didn't take it it would be donated to a yard sale. I tried not to seem too anxious but an hour later I was picking up three boxes of some great fabric and batting. Some of the fabric was ready to make quillows with and when my DD saw some of it she got all excited so... I made her a quillow! My first! I even did some large stippling on it which for me is a stretch still. I told her it wasn't very good work but she said, "It looks good to ME!!" Love that girl :o) My July scrappy still waits to be worked on along with other UFOs, but my Maddie is real happy with her quillow.

Annie, your CW quilt is fantastic!
My dear Maddie has also decided she likes my MQV and would like it for her very own with some matching pillowcases. It's still just a top, folded neatly on a hanger ... maybe by Christmas.
Love the bag you made. This pattern is so great and goes together so easily. I love mine and get comments on it everytime I carry it.
Rachel, looks like you may have a budding seamstress in the making here. Thats a nice looking bag she made.And she is only11.5 years old. Amazing! Hope shes proud of herself . Love the colors. Susan
Rachel-Your daughter did a great job on the bag! What great colors, too!
Debbie--I've always wanted to make a quillow, but never seem to get around to it...especially since it would be for me...darn it! Yours looks great!
Debbie, love the quillow, and you have a very pretty DD
Thanks Susie, it was real easy... 2 yards front ,2 yards back, batting and a double sided 18" square pocket. You'll be done before you know it! :)
Thank you Leslie. She's actually one of my ex-step dd's so I can't take any credit for her beauty =D
Rachel Young:Well, last weekend, my daughter and I FINALLY got to sit down and get some quality sewing done, together.
She did a wonderful job on it and at 11 1/2 yrs old, she has a pretty bright future in sewing/quilting. Love hearing stories where moms and daughters connect with doing projects like this. Be sure and post yours when it is done - love your color combination.
Debbie-do:Some of the fabric was ready to make quillows with and when my DD saw some of it she got all excited so... I made her a quillow!
How great this is, Debbie! I used to make quiillows for the grand kids and they absolutely loved them. To stick their feet inside the pillow pouch while curled up with the quillow watching TV was the most fun to watch. I think I need to make them for the little DGGD's. Their mama would get a kick out of it.
Maddie looks very proud of her quillow. Great job!
Rachel, you daughter's bag turned out great. She is as talented as mom!
