My 5 year old son picked out this fabric. I chose the pinwheel design. I've only done squares before, so this is my first time with triangles. It's really soft and he loves it:)

This is my first post of something I've made btw Grin

This is before it was quilted:


I just quilted a freehand wavy stitched line around the edge and around each of the squares:

your son did a great job picking his own colors and you are so sweet to not discourage him, I think it is important to give kids a chance to express themselves

I think the colours are fabulous for a 5 year old -- and I really like the backing fabric. Nice work.

Your son did a fantastic job picking out colors!  My 15 and 18 yo sons would love this quilt but it would have to bit a little larger for them  Grin
