We did this last year for my granddaughters Girl Scout troop. All the material was precut, and we had several sewing machines available, and several adults to assist. Some of the girls were actually very nervous around the sewing machines. Some were sewing like pros. They made small lap quilts for the local old folks home, and after they had sewn them all together, Moms did the tying. They all had a good time, just make it simple for them.
I love this. I bought the magazine back when, and made these myself. Great project. We're considering this! Thank you Anita, for responding yourself! Very thoughtful of you!
Thank you all for the input! The options are endless! I had bought the Quiltmaker May/June 2006 issue when it was on the newsstand and actually did make the Super Size 9 patch quilts. I think we're going to use this pattern. Thank you Anita Solomon Grossman for posting the link. We'll use a group of 3 single yard cuts that coordinate, but mostly, we're going to precut blocks in the sizes that you end up with after cutting the yardage. If that makes sense! :) The girls had a blast last year picking out all their own blocks/fabrics for their own blankets. I'm sure we'll end up with some pretty imaginative combinations. If I remember, I'll post some pics!
