I could not be more happy with how these quilties turned out, not to mention the fact that they're done two and a half weeks ahead of time.
These are for a live-auction fundraiser for my little girl's preschool. There is a Kindergarten group, and a morning and afternoon preschool class. Usually each one has its own item to auction off. So Mother of the Year here volunteered to make a quilt for each group, with the kids' participation.
While I loved what Angela did here, I figured that might be a wee bit too advanced for 3 to 5 year olds, and settled on having them write their names on a leaf to add to their class's quilt. I helped the littler ones if they needed it, either by writing their name for them altogether, or by adding their name where what they'd written was a bit tough to decipher.
Everything was adhered using Heat n Bond light, which, when you use as much of the stuff as I did, really gums up the machine needle and causes the bobbin thread a fair bit of consternation. But I persevered, and I love how they turned out.
Kindergarten quilt - a garden for the kindergartens! 42" x 49" - a large wall-hanging or a small coverlet.
Detail shot of the cuteness (all the bugs were fussy-cut from a scrap without a selvage so I have no clue who made it).
Here's what the back looks like:
Morning Class quilt, which finished at 42"x54":
Back (fabulous IKEA fabric!):
Afternoon Class quilt, which finished at 42"x53":

Clever readers may have noticed that the two AM/PM preschool quilts are a diptych - here they are side by side.
Waaay more photos (yes, there are, in fact, more) may be found in my Flickr photostream, and I am linking up all over the darn place with these lovely finishes, including Finish It Up Friday at crazy mom quilts and these other places:
