Kid - made quilt swap, anyone?

Andrew has started making his first quilt. He pulled out some fabric today and informed me he was making a quilt, and making a swap package to go with it. He said it needed to have chocolate (since his partner wouldn't be allergic to chocolate) and nice ribbons. I was pretty amused by this, but we've started making the quilt anyway. He picked out four fat quarters, so its probably going to be about 30 x 36 or so. Its pretty fun sewing with him, but I'm kind of dissapointed he wants to give the quilt away. And it tells me something that he didn't even consider that we should keep it. Quilts aren't for keeping, silly mom. We never keep any of ours, after all.

Anyway, if there's anyone interested, Andrew would love to swap with another kid who wanted to make a quilt.
