History of Baby Quilts: Patterns for Crib & Doll Quilts
Make doll and baby quilts typical of different periods in history. Each pattern includes some history and information on how the quilt would have been made during that time. There’s a nine patch that could be made by most children and a log cabin that an older child could make. Both sewing and history would be learned from each pattern.

Quilting With Children
This page is designed to describe the projects I have organized and give you ideas, techniques, and resources for working with children in making quilts.

Sewing Machine

Looking for a child-friendly sewing machine? This is without a doubt the best option. Not only is there a Derby Line machine for everyone’s favorite colors, but the presser foot is specially designed to prevent little hands from finding their way underneath the needle. Don’t be fooled! This machine is not a cheap toy likely to break and plagued by poor stitch quality. It can create some fantastic work for children of all ages. The Derby Line from Janome features nine different color options: Pink Lightning, Turbo Teal, Graceful Gray, Fastlane Fuchsia, Lady Lilac, Mystical Mint, Citrus Circus, Marine Magic or Purple Thunder.
