Heart-Felt Homework

Treys_quilt_squareThis is Trey’s quilt square for the first grade Thanksgiving quilt.
Please notice his expert use of color repetition and visual triangles — not to mention the meaningful journaling. This is his first attempt at sewing. We sat on the floor — he guided the stitching, while I pushed the foot pedal with my hand. What a fun thing, teaching kids new tricks — like how to push a deadline [this was due on Friday]



  1. He did a great job! Love all the colors in the LO!!

  2. Isn’t it fun to help your guys with projects like these? Kind of break down that sexism barrier a little, the one that says only girls sew?
    My younger boy, Wyatt, made a quilt for the local farmer’s day fair arts & crafts competition and won the people’s choice award for needlework in his age group (6-10 years old). I thought I would bust I was so proud of him. And I love that he doesn’t think sewing is for girls!
    And in keeping with my procrastination talents, he finished it the week of the fair.

  3. What a great job! Of course, he had a wonderful teacher! LOVE the visual triangle… just LOVE it! :)

  4. SO sweet! My daughter was at a kindergarten program and was asked in the middle of the “Thanksgiving Song” what she was thankful for. “My brother!” came out loud and clear… they fight, but I know deep down they love each other.
    Thanks for sharing!
