Sleeps Six...


I am a huge fan of Pine Needles quilts and have finally started my In Full Bloom kit that I purchased last summer. With the help of my niece, we started on the sleeps six block, thought we'd start small. My niece does beautiful drawings and wants to learn to quilt during her week long visit with me, so we looked through my projects in waiting and picked an art quilt. I put her to work straight away with tracing and in no time flat she had all the images traced out. I put them to fabric and a few short hours later we had our first block. I will stash it away for now in wait for thread painting and a little embellishment.

Is that ever a sweet pattern! Haven't seen that one before. What a great way to bond with your niece, and what a wonderful aunt you must be! 8-)
Happy stitchings!
