Welcome to another #SummerCamp activity, which I think is perfect for kids of all ages, but definitely a great way to teach kids to quilt!
Many quilters around the world have learned to quilt with Eleanor Burns and have enjoyed her books, patterns and wonderful rulers and tools. Needless to say, I’m absolutely delighted to be able to showcase one of her new patterns, which is also an excellent pattern to use to teach a kid to quilt!
Our kid friendly activity today is to make a beautiful Color Wheel Quilt, using a new Quilt in a Day pattern that has great visuals and easy to follow instructions.
Eleanor also has a helpful Youtube video that provides a good overview of how to make this cheerful quilt.

Eleanor is the Queen of Quilting and thoroughly enjoys teaching others to quilt. And she, as well as the entire Quilt in a Day (QIAD) team, is dedicated to helping quilters create, as well as helping future quilters learn to fall in love with quilting. QIAD has many wonderful patterns, books, and DVDs that can help you learn to quilt.
The new Color Wheel pattern is really a good value, priced at what I view is the low end of standalone pattern prices, make it a great deal to buy anytime. But Quilt in a Day is generously offering #SummerCamp participants a special bundle to help you teach your kids to quilt:
This special combo offer for a pattern, craft scissors, and a measuring tape for only $5, is good for a limited time and while supply lasts. And be sure to check out many other wonderful #kidfriendly items available at Quilt in a Day, all at great prices. I also heard that they are having an amazing sale on fabrics as low as $2.75/yard in their Fabric Boutique blow out sale, which you may also want to check out.
I hope this lovely quilt pattern inspires you to teach kids to quilt by making this quilt, or maybe you’ll want to make one yourself. Retail orders can be placed online with Quilt in a Day, or you can let your favorite quilt shop know you’d like them to carry this pattern and they can place a wholesale order. Quilt in a Day ships quickly and, they can also help you with fabrics, notions and more all at great prices too!
