This is David's second quilt! He is my 9 yo son. You can find his first quilt here. He enjoyed making the first quilt so much ( a wall hanging), that he wanted to make a lap quilt. But when he got that size all sewed up, we had enough fabric left over to make it big enough for his bed.
I think this pattern is easy enough for a small child to make by himself. David was really working on getting his seams to be 1/4 inch. I had to trim a few spots, but it went together okay.
For those of you who don't know my son, he is a very adventurous, outdoor kinda kid. He loves all things farming, ranching, and outdoor. He is the one who volunteers to mow the grass lately, even when it's super hot outside!
I gave it a quick meander and sewed the binding on for him. But I am so proud that he did such a great job on his quilt! He's even going to help me make one for his little brother. (They share a room so his will have horses on it.)
