ask a child about COLOR

quilt designed by third grader

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.
