Here is Olive, sewed by my daughter when she was 9, with my help. Olive is 16" long. We used the book Quilts by Denyse Schmidt, 30 Colorful Quilt and Patchwork Projects . The original project had a pieced stomach, but I simplified it with a square applique. Same basic look as the original.
A fun project to do together!
The book has some other great projects- lots of bold, graphic design quilts of course. There are also pot holders, coasters, cards, an apron and bags, among other things. I love her choices of statement making colors.
