Liam’s Creations

One day when my oldest son was six years old, he asked me if he could sew something. I asked him what he wanted to make, and he said, A Quilt. I tried to explain that he was a little too young probably and that it’s pretty hard to do, but he nagged and nagged until I gave in. This is the result:

Liam completed all the blocks by himself, he sewed them on my machine and pressed each piece afterwards. I helped cutting the blocks into 10″ blocks and then he stitched the red strips. I did the quilting & stippling.

Here Liam is sewing pot holders for this grandparents for Christmas, now aged 7 and this is how they turned out:

} catch(err) {}

  1. What a little quilting savant!!!Amazing work! He should be very proud. (You too, of course)Thanks for linking to my blog. It helped me to find yours and now I will link right back.Andi 🙂


  2. These are great! I may see if my daughter wants to try some like these. She's been sewing 4-patch blocks but refuses to believe that even seam allowances will be important later. I like how your son sewed blocks and you cut them to size; that would work for us I think.


  3. Hi, yes, kids can do this, it's really easy! Liam doesn't care much about seam allowances either, but it doesn't matter! I rather he has fun and later in life worry about all the "rules". It's really good for their motor skills too, you know, stop start and co-ordinate brain, foot and hands! Fantastic!
