My daughter is not interested in quilting. Not that she isn't artistic or talented. Just the opposite, there isn't anything she can't do. Sewing just isn't her thing. I have a wonderful daughter-in-law. I would love to sit and teach her to quilt but she lives near Denver and I'm in California. I would like to start making trips back there and take her to quilt classes at a local quilt shop. She has just started a new job in a new city with a new house so perhaps now isn't the time. Maybe next year.
I don't have a granddaughter like my friend does. She is eight and is already quilting and stitching. So much fun!
So what am I to do? Hmmmmmm.........
"I think so, Mommy. What's quilting?"
"Well, you buy beautiful fabric that costs lots of money, cut it up and sew it back together. That's called quilting."
"You're kidding me, right?"
