It was a wonderful 2 weeks! Hanna and Willy were a delight and Grandpa and Grandma enjoyed every moment of their visit. We boated, swam, saw a parade, visited the zoo and they got reacquainted with all their Wisconsin relatives.
One of the highlights was Hanna’s enthusiasm for quilting once again.
The kids were last here 2 1/2 years ago. At that time (Hanna was almost 5) she really wanted to learn to make a quilt and when she finished one for her dolly she asked if she could make another one (to read that post click here!).
We ran out of time that visit, but it was one of her first questions after arriving this time. So I set up my featherweight once again and asked her what she would like to make. We had all just spent a day with her cousin Sommer at my parent’s lake cottage.
So she decided she wanted to make a quilt for Sommer. I pulled out my box of 6″ charm squares and she chose her favorite 24. Hanna pieced them all by herself and her 1/4″ seam allowance was pretty consistant :-).
The night before they went back to Washington she gave the quilt to Sommer and this was the thank you picture Uncle Brad sent us from Sommer that night.
What a joy! Willy was a bit put out that he didn’t get to quilt. There just wasn’t enough time. But I promised to help him make whatever he desired on their next visit. Should be interesting :-).
