The Class Quilt

We have been promising all year to do a quilt project with Tink's class. It is becoming a semi tradition. I say semi because we actually skipped a year and didn't do one last year. But we are back on track for this year and we have almost waited too long to complete the project because the year is almost over! Our school mascot is the Bulldogs, so we made raw edge appliques of Bulldog paw prints. Two large ones for the teacher and assistant and smaller prints for the students. The kids traced their own paw print and cut them out then we ironed them on the fabric. This was a little break from their countless hours of preparing for their end of grade testing, which takes place next week. Here is the class with their project.

This is Russ ironing on the appliques. The kids were so excited to see how it was going to turn out.

Now I have to stitch around all the paw prints, then borders and then on to the long arm it goes. Stay tuned for the finished product!

  1. That quilt looks so cool. I think I am going to do this project with my kids class.

  2. What's funny is that I was reading your blog and at the same time you were posting on my blog!

    What a great idea for the kids. I let my grandson take the helm of my sewing machine lately and he was so excited he was vibrating!

  3. I had a school teacher email me that she was going to teach her next year students to make a quilt together using my Flights of Fancy. I sent her here to see what you just did. Quilt on!

  4. This is so cute and such a great idea. I love all their little faces watching Russ ironing!
