Kids Camp 2015!

We LOVED doing this pattern with our Campers! Simple and easy construction allowed for them to really get used to the sewing machines and not be intimidated by them! Lots of straight lines can still create a stunner of a quilt when you pick interesting prints in lots of fun colors!
One of the best parts about Kid Camp is these young ones remind us how simple it is to quilt! We all tend to stress over every little fabric selection while kids seem to rush out and pick exactly what makes their heart sing! And leave it to a kiddo to show us that quilt in all one color can still look AMAZING!
I love the way this pretty and light quilt turned out! Starting with her favorite print as the centerpiece of the quilt, the rest of the fabrics came easily by going with colors in already in that busy design!
We just love how much that striped border between the tonals makes this quilt POP!!
Print mixing is not the most simple way for most adult quilters to go about making an awesome looking quilt, but Kids just seem to have a knack for it! I guess its because they know what they like and they have the confidence to put it all together! This one is SEW much fun with that bright pop of lime green!
Another stunning surprise was Olivia's gorgeous quilt full of awesome FLORALS!! All of those prints together just WORK and it definitely looks like something I could see in a bohemian bedroom!
Who doesn't love a great quilt full of neutrals?? This one came out AMAZING with her spot on color values that allow each print to really be seen for all it's worth!
With their quilts all folded up! Big graphic patterns look SO cool, even when you're only getting to see a portion of it!
In addition to their big quilts, they got to make some super fun Pillowcases!! Our Pillowcase Kits are one of the best ways to teach kids to sew, pick one up for your little one and you won't have to wait until next Summer to get them sewing!
Everyone also created some cute Christmas themed mini quilts or wall hangings for their bedrooms this holiday season! Love the panels everyone chose!
Last but not least, they all made some fun fabric bags! There was A LOT of sewing going on this Summer and we're sure they all just became makers for life! We hope your kiddos join us for next year's Kids Camp!!
