Patchwork Quilt Sewing Craft & Activity
* This post contains affiliate links for convenience*
A few weeks ago, my daughter & I made sew & weave Easter bonnets. She really enjoyed working with the plastic sewing needle. She liked it & took to it so well that I wanted to give her more sewing projects. Her nana is a quilter, so she know a lot about quilts. I thought making a quilt craft would be a fun activity for her.
My mother-in-law has a wonderful talent. She makes the most beautiful quilts. Our daughter has been lucky enough to have been the recipient of a few of her nana’s creations. For her birthday last month nana made her this eye spy quilt. I love it so much that I even made it the backdrop to my blog.
Nana’s quilt was the inspiration for our crafts tonight.
Things you need:
Optional: crayons,markers,stampers, sticker, tissue paper
Cut different colored construction paper into six 3 1/2X 3 1/2 squares. Let your child paint, stamp, glue glitter or tissue papers to the squares to make different designs. Let them decorate them however they like.
Set the squares aside & let dry.
Glue the squares down on another piece of construction paper, making sure to space them out evenly.
Draw different patterns in the spacing.
Mai did such a beautiful job with this craft. While I watched her paint, she told me “I like doing projects with my mama.” I love doing them with you too, baby girl.
