    Give A Mouse A Cookie? How About, Give A 7 Year Old Your Design Board!

    I had already completed the center panel of spider web blocks and the mini star blocks (these were made from scraps left over after making a Day & Night quilt out of the light gray and purple). I wanted to incorporate the mini stars into a quilt with the spiderweb panel, but was undecided about how to incorporate them.

    I had the panel up on my design board and asked my two daughters what they thought. My youngest, age 7, grabbed the mini star blocks and arranged them, alternating on-point blocks with traditionally set blocks. Then, she suggested I use the darker gray (with flecks of purple) as sashing to make it different from the original Day & Night quilt that these cast offs came from. :0 I was floored. This coming from the girl who doesn't have the patience to sit still long enough to learn her multiplication table!

    I think you have a quilt designer there. Good job.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
