My third grader, William came home with these quilt blocks on Friday.
Each child has drawn a holiday-theme picture on a white square of fabric. Aren't they great?
Mrs. Penfield also enclosed some green gingham and a light green bedsheet for the backing. Oh, and by the way, we're supposed to ship the completed quilt to a soldier in Iraq on Monday.....
My son Daniel is helping to pin the layers together. The quilt looks a little ripply here, but it turned out fine!
Of course quilting was out of the question, I tied it with a variegated yarn.
On Sunday night I was a little farther than this...but I needed sleep.
I finished the binding at about 1:00 on Monday afternoon and drove it straight to school.
Here is the proud class. William is in front with the black hoodie. Mrs. Penfield is in the red sweater.
Isn't it great?
