Quilt of Valor Project

To celebrate National Sewing Month, my son and I decided to teach our Gal Pal how to sew. Today, we started a Friendship Star quilt which we plan to donate to Quilts of Valor. Both kids (10 yr-old) will donate an afternoon/ week in order to complete our project. I'm so proud of them as the weather is still nice outside (although it did rain today...) and they are both so busy with school and sports. This is a nice opportunity for us to spend time together while learning a new skill. My son has been around the sewing machine for many years so he's actually a pro. Our Gal Pal is a quick study and was putting triangle squares together in no time!
