One of the things that made this project good to do with a 9 yr. old, was that it was quick to do. We started on Monday and I finished the hand sewing of the binding this morning.
Here are some tips that I think are helpful when sewing with kids:
Use fusible batting. That was really helpful, so that she didn't have to stop and remove pins while quilting and it's quick and easy to do.
Draw on the quilting lines with a washable marker. It makes it so much easier to get a straight line when you have something to follow. The brown (yes, brown) marker we used washed right out and the quilting looks great!
So, great job "K"! Your quilt turned out beautifully!
