The best-selling children's sewing series now invites kids ages 8–12 to discover the fulfilling fun of patchwork quilting. Step-by-step photos show every stage of the techniques and projects.
As soon as they pick up the basics of sewing, many kids become curious to understand how to stitch together fabric scraps to make one big piece. This comprehensive, photo-rich guide shows kids how, with step-by-step instructions for creating one-of-a-kind quilt tops, then adding batting and backing, and stitching the layers together to make a finished quilt. Young sewers can practice their quilting skills with more than a dozen creative and practical projects - including an illustrated placemat, a foundation-piecing pencil pouch, a patchwork pet bed, an appliqued family crest, and a recycled T-shirt quilt.
