My experience with children and color is that they will knock your socks off with their choices.
I have also noticed that even children with absolutely NO experience with fiber, fabric or sewing have a great nose for the BEST fabrics (another reason not to set foot in JoAnn’s again).
This quilt was designed by an 8 or 9 year old. She laid it out. I pieced, quilted, and bound it. She won the collaboration and quilt in a fundraiser for her school.
So pretty! I agree, children have great senses of color – and great fearlessness.
why we need children! why I love teaching – because the children surprise me each day with their insights. this is a beautiful quilt! You must be the be the a most inspiring teacher Dee!
children probably teach more than they learn from me… haven’t held a class in about a year, it must be time.
