Quick & Easy Quilts for Kids: Colorful quilts in sizes for kids
Quick & Easy Quilts for Kids features 12 projects designed in sizes to fit cribs and children's beds using themed fabrics, such as animals, race cars, bugs and colorful shapes.
Each quilt is easy to create and can be completed in a day. Patterns include step-by-step instructions, color photos, and drawings to guide quilters through each technique, along with general finishing instructions.
The book is available in specialty stores and on the Web at Clotilde.com.
Connie Ewbank is the designer. For 12 years, she owned her own quilt shop and taught quilting classes. From there, she began publishing her own designs in pattern and book form. Today, she teaches quilting classes across the country and as far away as Monterrey, Mexico, as a circuit teacher for the Gulf States Quilting Association.
