I'm so very proud of my 17 yr old daughter, Becca... she made her very first quilt, 100% of the work was done by her, all I did was provide the instruction and some guidance. She used all the leftover fabric I had in my stash from the quilt I made for my niece, but instead of a chevron pattern she did a pinwheel one. The toughest part for her was working with the minky fabric on the back, she wasn't happy with the way it shifted(and ultimately bunche a little). She also wasn't too fond of hand sewing the binding on!, but she loved making the top :)
This was a gift for her creative writing teacher, whose wife just had their first baby.
