Last year my twins were in Senior Kindergarten
and they had had the same teacher for both Junior Kindergarten and
She was a sweetheart and my Kids ADORED her
We did too - so I decided I wanted to make her a wall quilt for her
classroom as our Christmas gift to her.
I mentioned that I do tons of other crafts and something I did for years was folk art painting. Loved that too but I cut my own wood and stuff with a scroll saw and as I can NOT do that in the house - I am limited to time with that craft - but I had TONS of patterns and it occured to me that I could cut the patterns out of fabric instead of wood and use the patterns as applique.
So I bought a used copy of Electric Quilt 5 (computer quilting program) on ebay and I had a blast designing a 4 panel quilt with a 4 season theme so she could leave it up all year. Its a pretty fair size - its bigger than poster size.
I found cute Crayon fabric that I used in the border and sweet yellow fabric in the sashing that has the alphabet in it!! Oh I had so much fun shopping for adorable buttons that I sewed onto the blocks, there are snowflakes, ladybugs and little flowers that I found AFTER sewing the quilt and the colours were too perfect..
Let me know what you think
(my sashing was a little off in the center - But I noticed it too late)
