    Finally finished the quilt I made with my daughter's preschool class, with only days before the school session ends! The kids each did a handprint, and then I made a wonky block out of each one. Hard to tell in this pic, but the border/sashing fabric is hugely cute, and says things like "make life sweet" "make life fun" "make life silly", etc. The back has handprints of the teachers and parents who helped.

    I always love these handprint quilts. Time is so fleeting and these quilts become much more precious as time goes by. Thanks for sharing, it's way cute!

    what a great quilt. It's beautiful. Who is it for?
    I did one with my oldest daughter's 1st grade class. That was wild. We had the kids sewing the blocks with several mom's helping. They actually turned out great, a little crooked (we did pinwheels) then I took it home, sewed the blocks together and sandwiched it, quilted it and gave it to the teacher for her first child's birth. It was a sweet present from the class to their teacher.
