Last week during Spring Break my grandson, Cooper (10), came to stay for a couple days. He spent alot of time on my iPad playing games (and showing me how to find new apps), but was intrigued when Lois and I started laying out Layer Cake and charm squares on the floor for a quilt top. After asking a few questions, he proceeded to arrange fabrics and colors as well as any experienced quilter out there. He was delighted to see the pattern come together as we sewed and pressed blocks and asked some very thoughtful questions about quilting in general and my raw edge applique technique. Before he left, he asked if there were any guys that quilted. I assured him that not only do men quilt, some make a living at it. He offered to accompany me on a few road trips over the summer "just to check things out". Hmmm...I hadn't imagined a second generation of KTQ. You just never know. Here's Cooper with his Justin Bieber "do", posing with another of the Piecing the Past quilts, Peppermint Dreams (his idea).
The pictures I took of the new project turned out really dark, so I'll try again tomorrow. Guess I should have let Cooper take them :).
