My grandson Augies had been visiting when this challenge came up. He wanted to help with this challenge. Augie has a strong sense of color and design. He chose all of the colors for his quilt and also most of the colors for my contribution. We started first with my 'shroom village. He cut parts and definitely placed and help with the fusible fabric. I finished with details like grass (when he said Grandma, you need to put some grass on the bottom).
Augie completely designed his own quilt. the only contribution that I made, was rotary cutting and ironing. This is a special quilt for me. He is amazing. Augie (who lives far away from his California Grandma in New Hampshire) is a very grown up 6 years old.
Of ourse, grandma did do all of the free motion quilting on both.
