I am totally proud of my girls (9 & 10 yrs) for seeing this one through! They started it in March Break and finished the top at the beginning of September. I started by cutting out 4.5 x 8.5 inch bases from a thrifted sheet. I gave them free reign on which scraps to use. 'Whatever you think looks good." is what I told them. They cut strips, sewed them onto the bases, pressed them and added more strips. I showed them how to sew the rows together (alternating directions).
I helped sew some of the rows together as it was getting heavy and some spots had a good number of layers to them!
I did the quilting and the binding. They opted for rounded corners and I really like it! This quilt will be a snuggling quilt in our family room. It's approximately 44 x 52 inches.
It's a fun quilt for my kids to look at. A different kind of I spy game when you are looking for scraps of many different things I have sewn for them and others over the years. I see scraps from bibs, quilts, pajamas, dresses, curtains, shirts, skirts, bags, purses, and more! A very fun finish for both the girls and I.
Have a good day - I am enjoying the sunshine streaming in through my windows!
