My granddaughter Maddy made this yesterday. I spread out a bunch of solid fabrics and told her to pick out 2 fabrics she liked for each row. She very much took her time deciding (can that be hereditary?). I cut out a strip and then she cut out the rectangles with scissors. You will be so proud of me that I did not at all tell her to change any of her colors. The orange and blue (3rd from the bottom) made my teeth hurt but now that it is in the quilt I love it.
It was fun to see an 8 year old pick her colors and why. She was very particular about how the rows were to be sewn together and packed up the rectangles in order of sewing.......I can't wait to do this with my grandsons too.
I will be putting this to the front of the line to get it done. I am pretty sure I am going to make more of these pretty quilts.
