-- CADOTT, Wis. — Because children retain knowledge using their senses, Bless This Child Designs has announced a new interactive quilt pattern. Titled “Little Boy Blue,” this pattern features a charming landscape with haystack flaps that can be opened and closed. Children will enjoy playing hide and seek with Little Boy Blue by moving him and searching for him under the various haystacks. This element of “play” is what sets Bless This Child Designs’ patterns apart from any other.
“Little Boy Blue” is uniquely patterned to offer parents, grandparents and care givers a wonderful chance to teach language, music, colors, math and small manipulative skills to children while engaging in a playful game. The completed quilt will allow a parent to create stories, and in years to come, the quilt can become an heirloom for the family to pass on for generations.
“These quilt designs are created from the heart. They allow the child’s loved ones to spend close bonding time with the child while learning and playing,” said Bless This Child Designs owner and quilt designer Shannon Klahr.
Klahr created her business not only to design beautiful quilt patterns, but to also help support the community and the earth. She is extremely socially and environmentally conscious, donating a portion of her profits to charitable causes such as Habitat for Humanity and Heifer International. Klahr also donates to various environmental causes and uses recycled papers for making her patterns. Quiltmakers can take pride in their completed “Little Boy Blue” quilt, knowing they are contributing to the education of the child recipient, as well as making a difference in the world with their purchase from Bless This Child Designs.
The company also offers “Old MacDonald,” another interactive pattern for a children’s quilt, and other designs are in the planning stages. “Little Boy Blue” and “Old MacDonald” can be found online at http://blessthischilddesigns.com
