I don't go looking for extra projects. Honest I don't.
But they find me anyway.
This year my daughter is in the Bluebird Class in preschool. When her first calendar came home, it said her book of the month was The Quilt Story. And they were going to make a class quilt!
I HAD to offer help. How could I not? So I mentioned that I sew and I would be happy to help out. Well, turns out they were just going to make a paper quilt. Gasp! Say what?!?
So I said I could whip up a "real" quilt and that idea was met with much enthusiasm...
I brought in the white square and fabric markers for each of the 17 kids to color. I believe the teachers asked them to draw a picture of themselves.
I used some of the scraps from Aurora's party to make the sashing. It was down and dirty and super fast. I didn't even quilt it. I used a little diamond stitch on my machine to "tie" it in a few places. I figured it doesn't exactly need to last forever.
I think they're going to use it for show and tell each week...each kid puts his/her iten on their own square. Cute!
