Blogger's Quilt Festival - Learning to sew





I'm Jake And I am 8 years old. I am homeschooled and I am learning to sew. I help my mom make quilts. This is my favorite quilt because I made it for a baby that we babysat and I like that baby.I made him laugh and read to him. And I did a lot of the work myself. My mom took it to a lady in a fabric store to quilt it. Becky quilted elephants alligators and monkeys on it, because that's what I wanted.

Mom's note The quilt shop is
Sew What! in Oxford Alabama
