    When I'm done with my sampler quilt, I want to help my 10 year old daughter make her own quilt. It has got to be something very simple. I will do all the fabric measuring and cutting and will have her piece it and possibly quilt it. Anyone have any suggestions?

    The TURNING TWENTY quilt would be a good place to start.

    Where might I find a pattern for that quilt?

    I always think rail fence is a good beginner's quilt because you don't have to match any seams when you stitch the blocks together. Also, the pattern looks more complicated to make than it is.

    You can check eBay for the Turning Twenty pattern, or Google it. I got mine off eBay.

    I'm going to start my 10 year old on a rag quilt this summer. Planning to use something that is heavy enough to not need any batting. Just a suggestion.

    Once again, I am going to suggest the "5 & Dime" quilt pattern by all washed up. Great for a beginner.

    Here is a link to their blog...scroll down and you will see it on the right hand side:

    If you have lots of different fabrics,you can cut 6 inch squares and sew them together in rows and put a couple of different size borders on them and it does turn out really nice

    Flannel might be heavy enough not to need batting, and it makes a great rag quilt. If you have a variety of patterns, basic squares, 4-path, 9-patch, rail fence would all be great beginner patterns.

    A rag quilt is a great first quilt. It is quick, easy, and probably the most forgiving. I have made several and taught my neice how to make one. Flannel is wonderful, nice color/print selection, and you don't have to use batting. It is still warm and really soft. It lets a new sewer get a feel for seam allowances and using the sewing machine, while building their confidence.
