    Smile Help with themes for quilt challenge

    Our guild has a challenge for quilts that cater to children aged 6 - 12. Any suggestions for what someone in this age group might find "wicked"????
    Thanks!!!!

    My 8-yr-old DGD loved her warm wishes quilt I made her--mainly because the solid blocks (focus fabric) were cupcake fabric. She loves anything with cupcakes on it. I think kids would like this pattern if the fabric was something that interested them.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    "Wicked" as in naughty? Or "wicked" as in COOL!?

    Sports themed
    Dancers
    that paper doll fabric
    Worms/bugs/dinos
    Cars/trucks/planes/earth-moving machines/school buses
    Harry Potter
    Circus theme
    and this one which I've copied from somewhere I don't remember...

    Or in the same vein, fish bowl quilt. Use different fish fabrics to create the bowls.

    A few years ago, our guild bought children's books and the challenge was to create a small quilt that went with the story of that book. The quilt and the book were given to children in the area.

    dogs or puppies. Kids love their pets and even kids that don't have a pet want one. Kittens would work alsol
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
