Handicraft Saturdays

After taking off last Saturday for the Winterfest, we worked on our rag quilts this morning.
Fairy sewed all her rows together. She did end up needing a bit of help from me because the fabric was a bit thicker than what she has worked with so far. The quilt is now put together. Next is the cutting. I explained to Fairy that this will take longer, but she can do little bit at a time whenever she would like. All that is needed is the quilt and a pair of scissors to make the little cuts at all the seams, without cutting the seam...a bit tricky but I know she can do it!

Dragon also worked on his rag quilt. We finished cutting all the squares needed. We will work on sewing them next Saturday.
