I’ve been talking about making a bunch of quilt projects for kids with Crystal for some time now. We’ve already got a couple ready to share with you all. Delbert was with me the other night, and he saw all my pretty strips of scrap material laying around. He asked if he could have it. Of course, being the Granny that I am, we dove into to making what I consider a “Hanging Quilt.” It’s really simple to make these quilt projects for kids.
- Hole puncher
- Elmer’s Glue
- Scrap Fabric
- As many pieces of Card Stock you want them to fill up.
- Give your kids a piece of card stock
- Then let them pick out the pieces of fabric they want to use on their quilt.
- I personally let Delbert cut up the fabric into little fancy pieces. Using a fabric cutter will make the process quicker and easier.
- They need to design their quilt placing their fabric pieces in the order they want. (If you want to turn this into a fancy math lesson, you can have them trace geometric shapes and then have them cut those shapes out and see how they can fit the most pieces on the card stock.)
- Then you have them glue each of the pieces of fabric on their card stock in whatever pattern they made.
- Then you take each piece of card stock and use the hole puncher to punch holes at the top of each of the card stock pieces.
- Then you put string in them to connect them together.
- You take your final string and make it a bit longer so that you can hang it up on the wall.

That is so adorable. What a great and fun project for the little ones. I know my cousin will love this for her kids!
I think it’s really inventive and teachers would love to do this in class with the kids for a lot of different lessons.
I absolutely love how this comes out. The kids creativity shows through. Cant wait til the grand baby comes to visit. Would be a fun project to do with her . Thanks so much for sharing.
Great ideas thanks. Thank you for sharing at Good Morning Mondays. Might give these a go with my youngsters. Blessings
This is absolutely lovely! I just love the look of pride too.
I’ll have to plan this for my girls. I think they would love it!
Thanks for sharing.
Thats an awesome little project not involving a sewing machine. I love the one your boy has made, I think Z would love to try out a similar thing!
That looks really simple, but very effective. I reckon my 4 yr old could manage it and make something to be proud of.
Such a cute craft! My kids would have loved this when they were younger.
I’ll have to let my younger kids do this while my older kids actually work on sewing their quilt blocks!
I love it– super fun!!
What a fun project!
