I had trouble picking a goal, because a) it's a busy month for me (speaking at my guild...yikes!, planning a 4-year-old birthday party, finishing a few tutorials I've promised people, on top of all the usual day-to day fun of work and home life) and b) because I was torn between what I want to do vs. what I should do. So ultimately I'm going with another seasonal choice, because after February I am not going to care about a snowman quilt.
February's goal: Finish quilting and then bind my snowman quilt.
And now I'm looking for recommendations. I am helping a mom friend of mine who is not a quilter make quilts for her two children, a 4-year-old boy and a 9-month old girl. I'm looking for suggestions of easy quilt patterns (either tutorials or patterns from magazines, books, single pattern purchases, etc.) you really like that would be great for kids' quilts.
I'd also love to hear about any fabric collections you particularly love with the kids' ages and genders in mind. My friend would like these quilts to last (I don't mean durability, but more that she wants them still to appeal to the children as they age.).
Please share your recommendations in the comments section!
Thanks so much!
