One of my granddaughters loves to sew using the wrong side of fabric and frayed edges especially in simple quilts. In fact, she has designed and made a number of quilts since she was 7 or 8 years old. She is in college now and a few of her quilts go with her. They are fun quilts and certainly not the traditional quilts that you think of. She designed them. She loves them and her friends think they are cool.
She has more quilt designs that she wants to sew. We have plans to put her quilt designs into an sewing ebook for kids one of these days.
In the meantime, there is an ebook available for sewing a rag quilt that I want to give her for her birthday in August. It is fast, fun and funky and she can do it in a week-end. It will be perfect for her dorm. She will probably add her own unique touches to it, but that is OK. I always encourage young sewers to do whatever they want. I tell them, "You are the designer. Do it your way."

Sew a quilt and give it as a gift. You can use up some of your fabric stash and it won't take a lot of your time. You can do it in a week-end. Or, if you are trying to encourage someone to sew, give the ebook as a gift as I'm doing. Sharing sewing projects makes a lasting memory to treasure.
