hi, I didn't do it as a quilt, but years ago I had the kids do a Christmas table cloth. We took coloring book pages, outlined on the sheet, then using fabric markers, colored the puctures. they enjoyed being able to color on it, and loved using it. I just used it for a family dinner, and the grandkids want to color too! has been a great item. I hope your family has fun with whatever you decide to do.
