I've only finished a few of the quilts for the pre-school class.
It was a lot of fun working in the classroom. I started out during circle time, and showed several small examples of different types of quilts ~ they were all lap sized quilts that belong to my son.
Then I sat in the corner and became one of the "centers." Two to three kids at a time, they picked out their strips, and two corner squares per block.
They watched me sew their squares together. I wanted each one to see the top of one of their squares get finished.
Despite the fact that it's taking a little longer than I expected, this is a REALLY fun project for me. I really enjoy working with kids and doing these types of projects.
I know I came across rather 'whiny' in my last post and I didn't mean to. I think I was just a little stressed, I didn't have enough fabric and was running out of money. I don't have a huge stash, and I really wanted as many of the fabrics to be 'kid friendly' as possible.
These are small little quilts, about 14 inches by 28 inches. I told the kids they would be making 'Car Quilts'. Just the perfect size to cover a child's lap on a chilly winter day.
On one square I had the child write their name and draw a picture with fabric pens. On the other square I had the children choose shapes for me to applique on the fabric of their choice.
Oh yeah, also, I've got my first commissioned project. I've been commissioned to make a lady in Seattle a Queen sized quilt. I'll take some pictures of the fabrics I'm using for that soon. I promised her she would be able to follow along with the construction of the quilt on my blog.
