One of my daughters is seven and is in junior primary at the moment. Her class is filled with many lovely, little personalities.
Her teacher is very, very pregnant, and had her last day yesterday.
Have you noticed when it’s known you’re a quilter, people ask you to do things? It was my pleasure to be asked to help comprise a quilt for the lovely mother to be.
We had a vague plan – the other teachers organising it had no training in quilting at all, but they had the idea to have each child draw a picture on a square. The rest was up to me.
We handed the quilt over yesterday. There may have been tears. They may have been mine.
I found this fabulous binding fabric from Spotlight a year or so ago. It’s so perfect for this kind of project, I will have to try and source some more.
They all did rainbows. No one told them to do rainbows. But rainbows are lovely.
So there you have it. Picture heavy, but how could I cut some of those precious little pictures. I’m thinking that I may do a tutorial one of these days (please don’t hold your breath, it may never happen!), so we shall see. Not rocket science in any stretch, but I did do a couple of tricks which made the whole thing run very smoothly, and smoothly is what you’re aiming for with a class full of seven year olds.
I am about to go to bed now – my all day sewing day was a great success. Of course, I packed way more than I managed to do, but I had a lovely day filled with lovely friends, and that’s all you can hope for, really.
Hope your day was quilty!
