    It's my daughter's turn for me to make her a quilt. She's 10 years old. I wanted something uncomplicated, so she chose pinwheel blocks, designed it (she wants rainbow colors), and helped choose fabrics from my stash. I'm going to have her help as much as possible. Now we're going to get started!

    Oh, she is beautiful and she looks very happy to get started! The design will work out perfectly from your fabric that you've selected. And a new quilter is born!!

    May you have many, many years of quilting together.

    The colors and fabrics look great. Have fun. There is a tutorial on cutting triangles that make, making pinwheels easier. :thumbup:

    She's old enough to learn to sew it! I bet if you teach her, she'll love that quilt even more!

    I'm thinking we could have a future sewer and designed, at least I hope so! She is so cute and about the same age I was when I started sewing. Have fun with the quilt.

    What a great idea! I taught my daughter how to quilt as well and now everytime she comes home we make something together. Great memories will be made as well. Please keep us posted with picture updates!

    Your daughter is beautiful as will her quilt be. I love the pattern and the colors she chose.

    Sharing the project when it's finished. Tell her we are very proud of her design, and color choice.
