Tessa leaves for college just about a month from now! I think all of us have a mix of emotions - we're incredibly proud of her and excited for all the opportunities she will have; but we'll miss her like crazy when she goes.
Today she finished the art quilt we've been working on for her dorm room. It is a modification of one of the patterns in Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader's book, Simple Contemporary Quilts.
Tessa chose all the fabrics, cut the pieces, made the sandwich, and did the quilting. My contribution was to inspire confidence, fix the sewing machine, and reassure her that if Laura Ingalls Wilder was making her first quilt, she'd go ahead and guess at it just like we were doing. She loves it and I'm way impressed with her skills.
