    Wonderful idea! Working with kids is great. I did a similar project with the toddlers I work with. I painted their hand and had them stamp them on muslin...each child had a handprint square with their name on it...and in the center of the quilt I put a picture of all the kids together...with sashing....then quilted around each handprint...came out so cute...hanging on wall in the classroom. Please post pic when it's done and Happy Graduation!

    I used to volunteer for art literacy at my sons' school. When we did the unit on quilting, every class did this. All the quilts were donated in the end. A really fun project.

    Those children must have been in their glory. Wait until you see their faces when it's hung. If the parents come in this will be one of the first things they will show them.
    Creative and joyous.

    The kids will remember this forever. What a great teacher you are. My fourth grade teacher taught us girls how to knit. I love to knit and I think of her when ever I knit or talk about it. You have a kind heart.
