What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ellie is a little conservative, so firstly I had to be the whimsical one - the spider piece from "The Very Series" was my introduction. Then I encouraged her to go through my stash for fabrics she liked. When she started in with my button box and other art quilting supplies, I left the inspiration to her. She would get side-tracked, and I would use the chance to sew on the machine (she loves this) as motivation to focus on the project. We chose something small with lots of "instant gratification" stages.
