This is certainly the project of baby steps. Yesterday I attached his quilt label and we spent some time in the evening pinning together the quilt sandwich to prepare it for him to machine quilt. He helped me tape down the backing and smooth out the batting and quilt top layers. Then I pinned it and we worked together to put the pinmoors on the pins.
I'm trying to crank out a quilt top finish before the end of the month, so I think I'll be hogging the sewing machine through Friday or Saturday, then I can set him up with the walking foot on the machine for him to do some straight line quilting. He's decided to do echo stitching on either side of his seams (agreeing that stitch in the ditch would be too tricky).
If you're local to the San Francisco Bay Area, you'll be able to see his finished quilt hanging in the Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association quilt show alongside 3 other children's quilts and over 350 other traditional, contemporary and art quilts (3 of which are mine!). The show is March 14th 10am to 5pm and March 15th 10am to 4pm at the Santa Clara Convention Center. $12 adults, children 12 and under free. For more information: www.scvqaquiltshow.org.
