Dino Quilt!

I feel like I’ve been posting a lot about kid’s projects recently, but, hey, that’s what summer is all about here at WTGB.

And so, rather than show you another photo of the Flower Basket Shawl (I'm on repeat 15--so it looks the same, only bigger), I’ll show you what we’ve been working on, quilting-wise, this week.

A dinosaur quilt for my 6yo, based on a drawing he did.



I was thinking of doing a little tutorial of how I translated this into fabric from my son’s picture. Leave a comment if you would like to see this. If I think that anyone would find it helpful; I’ll be sure to follow up with it.



Meanwhile, I am taking the kids today to grandpop’s house on Crooked Lake. One last short hurrah before we start school next week. I’ll catch up with you on Monday!

hi emily
i would love to see how you made the quilt :) i've often thought of 'translating' my kids' drawings into quilts or cushions but not known where to start.

cheers

I love it! Can't wait for my boy to start drawing some representational things so we can do crafts like this. Thanks.

it's wonderful! I just love kids' art. I've never tackled such a big enlargement of any of my DD's drawings, we've made a few wall hangings though.
