My 9 year old granddaughter Kristin drew her newborn cousin's name for Christmas and was puzzled about what gift she could give him. I suggested she could make him a quilt and she loved the idea. She did a great job and really enjoyed it. We used a simple pattern, backed it with minkee, (no batting) sewed right sides together and then turned it right side out, and tied it to finish. She can hardly wait to give it to baby Malcolm!
