Aidan's top - the rainbow fabric is on top but he pieced the yellow and black on my machine by himself. I did the cutting with the rotary cutter. It is 14x15 inches. He even drew a picture of the 'quilt' he wanted to make.

Emily picked these fabrics and sewed them together and then used some stitches on her machine to make them smaller with the zig zag. Again - they did the sewing I just did the cutting. They were quite proud of themselves. Emily drew a picture of her project before starting as well. It kept them busy while I finished with the dresden plates.
I cut them off at 5:22 realizing I had to feed them dinner and had not taken anything out. Em and I had burgers and beans while Aidan had some meatballs in sauce and beans. Dessert was the granola bars I made this afternoon with some coconut, nuts, and craisins. I under cooked them thinking they would be softer and maybe Em would like them. Nope, she didn't... and they are more like crumbly, soft granola bits rather than bars. Still tastes good and I've already had some on top of vanilla yogurt. Aidan loves them and is on his third bar.
I'm going to link up with the RSC Challenge for red on Saturday morning. You might also be interested in the mid year link party for the Challenge this year. There are tons of neat projects being worked on using up our scraps.
