For the second year in a row, I have helped the school that my daughter attends with a quilt for their annual spring fundraiser. This year the quilt was for the Junior Academy. The quilt has a handprint or footprint for every student enrolled there, so the tally came to over 150 small paintings. We decided to do an alphabet themed quilt with animals that matched each letter of the alphabet on their respective squares. A mother of one of the lovely ladies that work in the office there embroidered the alphabet on the squares, and they were given to me with blank handprints. I took the handprints / footprints and turn them into animals. I apologize that all I have to show here are the finish squares without the process shown (and only a few of them at that). But it was such a big project I thought it would be absent minded not to post some of them for you to see. Hopefully I will have a photo of the finished project ( I don't have to be the seamstress on this quilt, so it is being pieced together by that gracious mother I mentioned earlier) and you can see the whole thing put together!
I am always looking for new and unique projects to entertain myself (and my two children) as well as expand and diversify my portfolio and skills! Here is where I share what I have been doing and all of my "Pet Projects!" Thanks for stopping by!
