Over the moon.

I got a sweet little gift this week.

“Look Mommy! I made you a quilt!”

Paper and pencil, only, but still just as precious as a fabric and stitch version.

And boy was she delighted when I told her we could make a real one.

(And boy was I delighted that she wanted to!)

She picked out the fabrics. (From Bonnie and Camille’s Bliss line for Moda)

I did the pinning with a little help from the boy.

I did the pedal, too. (She can’t reach it).

She guided the fabric, oh so carefully. I loved every minute.

And then, of course, it was naptime, which gave Mommy plenty of time to put the finishing touches on it. (Binding is Spirit by Lila Tueller for Moda).

It turned out so cute, I’m tempted to keep it, except for the look on her face when I gave it to her.

Over the moon.

Turns out, that’s how I feel about teaching her, too.
