Quilt for Caelyn

My granddaughter loves bright colors, red in particular.  She is quite a good, little artist (9yo), and chose fabrics for a nap quilt herself.  She approved a simple design -
Not wanting the remnants, I pieced the back, and kind of like it.  But I'm yearning to work with repros again soon.  First I have to work on my daughter's modern quilt of aqua and grey.

That 9-year-old has a good eye. : )
Wow, two quilts out of your comfort zone in a row. I hope you come through unscathed!!

Good job. My oldest grandchild is 9. He really wants to quilt, but energy is low at my house. I am thinking of taking him to a quilting class and then..doing it myself. Diane

I bet she loves the bright colors. I'm thinking the back might have taken longer to piece than the front. Great job!

I love both sides, but the back really interests and delights me. What a wonderful gift.

It's a fun bright quilt and will be all the more treasured since you let your granddaughter make choices and participate;).
