    This is what I decided to do with my jellyroll...
    My co-teacher is getting married May 1st. I had the kids in our class draw and color pictures related to her wedding and gave them ideas like: wedding dress, cake, bouquet, the couple, etc. These are their ideas of what her wedding will look like (knowing of course that purple is her favorite color). I scanned their pictures and printed them on the printable fabric (washable of course). I'm very excited! Now I can't wait for the day of the shower as I plan to have the kids present it to her earlier that day.

    I also scanned her invitation and found a photo of the couple on FB and included both of those.

    Don't you love the blue and purple wedding dress!

    I love it-the colors are great. Don't you just love the innocence of kids? They draw what they feel. Your co-teacher is going to love it.

    Kid art is my favorite! I'm thinking of taking some fabric to school and making a "Downey" quilt with the kids - turning it into a math lesson as we cut the pieces. hmmmmm....

    When my DD was in 3rd grade, I volunteered in her classroom. One of the projects I did with them was to make a quilt. It was AMAZING how enthusiastic all the kids were - even the boys! They didn't even realize the math lessons involved! Her teacher talked about it for years.....

    to start I wanted to tell you that your quilt is beautiful.. the kids art is adorable, you truely have to love the imaginations that they have.. What lesson did you include on this? I am just curious.. was it a math lesson? I think that teaching kids to think of others is a good thing..

    As my dad would say, "That's a keeper." It's beautiful. I'm sure she will LOVE it.
