Train 'em young

     I am gifted with a granddaughter (age 7) who loves to color and draw. She asked me to draw some flowers with her on the driveway for spring. I am always stocked with chalk.

Mine
     Then she asked me if it was a quilt back, how could it be designed, so we drew these out. B is for back. Background fabric colors and design added. All her idea.

     Finally, she designed a front and now expects me to make it. F is for front. Yikes. How does she do that so easily and I sweat over graph paper?

The young are so uninhibited

I made student drawings into single quilt blocks that were converted into pillows. They loved them.

Love the spontaneity of children's art work. She will love your quilted version of her vision!

So beautiful! Nothing is as inspiring as a child's art! Free and uniquely individual. It will make a great quilt!

You are gifted with her and she is gifted with you -- together you make beautiful happen. Love this so much!

How precious! She is not inhibited at all in the creative imagination area. That spontaneous inner self shows all the time I bet.

Beautiful Linda! Your granddaughter is indeed very talented. Her drawings would make a very special quilt for her.

Because she's playing, Grandma - she is young and her creativity doesn't have "rules" yet - ;))

I can see a small quilt being made from each of her chalk art works!! I love the top one with lilac and pink flowers.

Have fun making this new quilt for her. Maybe she could do some of the stitching.
